It's better than feminism.

Why won't you tell us what your (declined) offer was, Reynaldo?
Sorry to say, but yes.
If any record is worth that amount (which I'm unsure about) it's this.
How can you put a price on such authentic suffering, you pig?
How can you put a price on such authentic suffering, you pig? High School poetry is priceless.You have to admit, though, that if you found that writing on the wall song on a song Poem LP it'd be a grail.
I say this as someone who enjoys boscoe.

COURTESY OF EARFUZZ.com --Junior Boscoe!Boscoe: We Ain't Free and If I Had My WayFrom: Boscoe [Kingdom of Chad, 1974]Whenever an exceedingly rare record comes up for auction it delivers the same range of responses. Half the people think the album is an overpriced pile of poo, the other half would happily pay the extortionate amount asked to get their hands on what they consider a grail in record collecting. What it seems to break down to is that while the album may not be worth the money asked for it, the knowledge that you can't pick up a reissue in your local store and that you are among the select few lucky enough to have it on vinyl adds extra enjoyment to the pleasure of listening. Sonic elitism in full effect my friends.A classic example of this is Boscoe's self-titled opus. A private label record on the truly awesomely named Kingdom of Chad that is still to be reissued, the album goes for a staggering amount of money whenever it appears. While it could be debated if any album is worth this much money I am fully convinced that this is an undeniably great recording.We Ain't Free goes some way to illustrating why people talk about this album in hushed reverence. An 8 minute stomper of funk featuring sweet harmonies, a riff that bangs round your head for days after, and the kind of breaks that make a producer feel like a kid in a candy store this is a blindingly hot track.While If I Had My Way is less jawdropping than We Ain't Free it's still a great slice of funk with a lovely horns/bass play off. It's always struck me, considering the record is a private press, how superb the production on the album is - crystal clear clarity and deep deep bass.I can't go out and recommend picking up this album for obvious reasons but hopefully it goes some way to illustrating why some people will drop so much dosh on a 12" piece of round vinyl........Labels: Funkposted by Junior at 11:58 AM Permalink | Comments (9) | Trackback
The boscoe thing has like passed beyond into another dimension of online in-joke....
Boscoe has transcended the boundaries of what is considered "music" and what is a fluid psychological theory on the "virtual he(a)rd mentality collecting artifacts" in relation to internet humor, confused ebay descriptions, private funk, and a proper diet of fruits and vegetables.If you're just speaking strictly about the music in relation the feelings that it invokes upon the listener, I will proudly say that I find it quite fantastic.If we're talking about "BOSCOE" in the ethereal sense it becomes more of a conversation about ones "moral compass" and how it relates to sticking up for what you believe in and how people should appreciate and covet certain artifacts. Are there better James Brown albums, yes. Is it a terd? That really falls onto the onus of the listener and how they communicate their opinion over the internet. Boscoe continues to blur the lines between reality , theory, love, hate, consumption and confused sexuality. Did I gladly pay $500 for a copy of this piece of underground chicago music froma guy in Finland? Have I listend to it since I've "aquired" it? Will we ever find a true answer to all these questions that "BOSCOE" leaves in it's wake? That is something that we will have to leave up to our children and our childrens children.Boscoe is a noun, a verb, an adjective, a mother, a daughter, a mortgage payment, a superlative, a piece of toast. It is all those things in one and I think that is what frightens people to their utter core being.The writing is in fact, on the wall. Boscoe is on my wall. Wall. Wall will, wallingford, CT. Wilco. Wheat, skeet, skip bop biddly beep boop. Hope. Damn us, damn us all.If I had my way I'd eat biscuts and steak, everyday.
