Some rare CD releases you should find in this lifetime, as reviewed by Keith Kirchner...

If you find yourself in Prague, haunting the various used CD shops that still seem to thrive in the Czech Republic, be sure to look for this classic gem from 1998.

Radost Classix 6IX (6 Years Of Radost FX), released on Warner Music, is a double dose of plastic sorted by the likes of Kristian, Bidlo, Tvyks, and all the Dj's that contribute to Club Radost's success.

You may hear some of these jams in your head before you even listen to the discs, but the fellas do a good job of choosing interesting mixes of the hits. The Grid, Underworld, Josh Wink, Paul Van Dyk, Dave Clarke, and Full Intention highlight a solid vocal house, and funky techno showcase. Check out the full playlist here.

🎵 Blondie's existentially titled No Exit (BMG) actually has some edge to it. Here, the original four members throw themselves into 14 numbers that prove that even 40-years after their heyday, the first generation new wave has a lot more heart than a good 80% of today's flavor of the week pop.

The styles are dated but the grooves rock (ok there's two ballads), and Debbie can still work up a sweat without imitating anyone. 

Trivia: Name a white rapper before Debbie Harry on 'Rapture'. 

🎵 Deep Sweden's record Chemistry Lab (Rachot) is much better recorded, and a lot wilder, than its predecessor. It reveals them to be sonic misfits closer to the Teletubbies or the Residents than the veneer of folkdom all those acoustic instruments afforded them.

An acquired taste, if you identify, you'll stay hooked, perhaps the least compromising record you'll hear this winter.

🎵 Versatile records is a surprisingly interesting French house music label.

Handed to me with shrug, the artists on the compilation, none of which you'll know, like I:Cube, Disco Cubizm, play beats like the fellows down at relatively well known F Communications, home of Laurent Garnier.

While less diverse and experimental than the F-troop, this is a tightly focused trance and bounce treat. A very pleasant surprise, and it is definitely worth the dough. 

🎵 Mucho Dinero, a Gee Street release by a dude named Yankee B covers a lot of turf.

His sniveling syllabic twists and turns are brandished like a sharp-edged urban instrument, slicing through rhythms ranging from hard-core hip-hop...to roots reggae... to uncompromising dancehallbeats.

Generally first releases from hip hop artists have a warrior spirit (unless it's pop), and you do sense that Mr. B has spent a few moons on the street. 

🎵 Slowdive called it quits in early '95, prompting the band's braintrust of Neil Halstead and Rachel Goswell to form Mojave 3, who broke their 3-year silence with Out Of Tune (4AD-Sire).

Still harnessing the dusty, acoustic ambiance that distinguished it from Slowdive, Mojave 3 has crafted a haunting album full of solemn guitar melodies, ghostly vocal harmonies and stark, melodic emotion.

Halstead and Goswell's weepy, intertwined vocals retain their poignancy, while the addition of winding organ chords and gentle brass touches help to flesh out the band's sublime subtlety.

🎵 Emotif Records set up in September 1995 as an experimental Drum and Bass label, and has consistently retained fresh appeal within the Drum and Bass 'scene.'

The current album A-1 Soundcarrier 2 features a collective of Tech-step innovators who have been paying and playing out of each others pockets in the London Underground.

Unrestricted by Dance music's fickle generic and tempo boundaries the freestyle of the sampling going on here is scrappy and the mix by some guy named Tonic fills the listener in on those golden days of hard drum and bass we may never get to London to hear. 

🎵 Murder, Misery And Then Goodnight (4AD) is a folk collection from the one-time Throwing Muse; Kristin Hersh.

Sex and violence isn't just a product of cheap cable television and video nasties - nah, it's a little older than that.

Quite a lot older if 's collection of Appalachian folk songs is anything is go by.

With the stabbings, murders, infanticide, deceptions, betrayals and bitter remorse things get a bit Cave-ish at times but Hersh pulls it off without seeming to try as hard.
