Far from the twin epicenters of New York and Miami, Carlos Ruiz and his Ebirac label were both feeling and generating the aftershocks of the mid-’70s salsa boom. Holed up in their own bustling Puerto Rican community center on Chicago’s west side, these third coast salseros plied their trade outside the hot lights, cutting their teeth in city parks, VFW halls, and Holiday Inn rec rooms. Nearly 50 records survive in the wake of orquestas La Justicia, La Solucion, and Tipica Leal ’79, the most impassioned, singular moments of which are compiled here.
Presented in deluxe Numero Style with a 60 page booklet accompanying the CD and a 12X12 inch, 24 page booklet in a full-sized slipcase with the LP.

Rammelzee Vs. K-Rob - Beat Bop
Released on Tartown Records in 1983, this is one of the most influential early hip hop recordings. Rammelzee was a pioneer graffiti artist, who had is own unique rapstyle. Jean-Michel Basquiat created the cover art, had a hand in producing the record, he himself a street artist with tremendous influence and legacy. The sounds and images have been borrowed, lifted, and twisted for the last 27 years. Available Here
DOOM’s own Metal Face Records here releases Operation: Doomsday as it was intended to be heard: as a special remastered and expanded two-disc set, featuring a 32-page lyric book and a complete collection of alternate versions, b-sides and instrumentals, packaged in a 7” x 8” tin lunch box. Stones Throw’s Jeff Jank, an often DOOM collaborator, and San Francisco-based artist Jason Jagel, who provided the painting for DOOM’s MM… Food album, were enlisted to create both an updated version of the album’s iconic comic-book style cover art for the box and a set of 10 Doomsday MCs trading cards (featuring DOOM, Kurious and others) especially for this release. Produced by Stones Throw Records GM and A&R Egon under the watchful eyes of DOOM himself, this is Operation: Doomsday as it was intended to be experienced. Available Here
