The Delinquents - Big Moves Big Moves Priority Records | Performance 4.5 | Sound 6.5 | Welcome back to the East Side. The East Side of Oakland, that is. Although not too far removed from the rap world's focus (thanks mostly to the recent success of E-40) it still seems as if it's been some time since the rap world has heard a great album from the Bay Area. Well, honestly, we can keep waiting. Coming from the tradition of their predecessors (Too $hort, The Click, etc.) The Delinquents too sold their own records to at long last get their deal.

Foo Fighters - The Colour and the Shape The Color and the Shape, Capital 1997 Performance 8 Sound 7 Bob Geldoff called Kurt Cobain "The John Lenon of the 90's". Hardly. The Foo Fighters capture the exciting, grungy hard edged essence of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Sprit" but without the heroin induced self loathing lyric.

Count Basie - 88 Basie Street XRCD JVC Music (reissue) | Performance 7 | Sound 8 | To add to the growing catalog of super-XRCDs, JVC music has licensed 88 Basie Street, a jazz record featuring the most significant big band leader ever, Count Basie in both a big band and smaller combinations. Two of the cuts also feature the legendary guitar stylings of Joe Pass.

Meredith Brooks - Blurring the Edges Capitol 1997 Performance 7 Sound 8 Meredith brooks picks up where Sheryl Crow and Alanis Moressette left off in the genre of women with angst. The clear hit on the record is "Bitch". With lyrics like "I'm a bitch, I'm a tease, I'm a goddess on my knees" this cut has the same popular appeal as Alanis' "Go down on you in a theater" phrasing that launched her to the biggest star of 1996.

Herb Alpert - Passion Dance Almo Sound | Performance 7 | Sound 9 | Passion Dance is an upbeat, spicy and passionate record that is extremely well recorded. Musically, Passion Dance is a throwback to Alpert's very successful records in the 60's with the Tijuana Brass. "TKO" is as exactly as it implies, a knock out with high energy percussion and a killer piano part over which Herb establishes a compelling melody.
