de la Soul are remembered as the premier Native Tongues posse, those rappers who got low-key, self-consciously thoughtful, and jazzy in the face of gangsta's hardcore threats. But A Tribe Called Quest may have been even stronger, especially on their excellent second album, the bass-thumping, heavily jazz-sampled the Low End Theory. According to the opening "Excursions," rapper Q-Tip's old man says the disc's jazz-rap "reminded him of bebop," and Q calls himself "prominent like Shakespeare." But if Charlie Parker had ever written poetic couplets and backed them with funky-drummer and Ron Carter-on-bass grooves this irresistible, he might have been as big as the Bard and Brother James combined. - David Cantwell.

Millie Jackson's second album "It Hurts So Good" is a stone cold classic and climbed into the US Top 30 when released in 1973. Not only does the album contain the evergreen 'I Cry' but other smoking tracks like 'Good To The Very Last Drop' and 'Now That You Got It.' Recorded at her first session at Muscle Shoals, the title track and 'Love Doctor' not only appeared on this LP, but on the big screen in the film Cleopatra Jones starring Tamara Dobson. Issued as a single, 'It Hurts So Good' became Jackson's biggest US chart hit peaking at #24. 'Help Yourself' and The Ashford and Simpson-penned 'Don't Send Nobody Else' were also recorded at Muscle Shoals. The balance of the album was recorded in New York sessions with tracks like the finger-popping 'Close My Eyes' equal to anything Holland-Dozier-Holland were putting out at that time.
