Best Of Albumbase aka The "Covering My Ass" Post

by Travis on June 20, 2007

I was going to do Part Two of the Record Label series until I started doing some research on the label I wanted to cover and realized “When They Reminisce” had already beat me to the punch more or less. My dedication of not following someones footsteps prevents me from doing it, so I’m scraping that project. In my futile attempts to try to come up with something in less than two hours, I’m going to rely on my old friend “Albumbase” to try to come up with a “cover my ass” post.
If you been around when I’ve done one of these half-assed Albumbase posts, you kind of know what to expect, I try to find some off the wall shit that I myself don’t usually have and try to pawn it off on the rest of you by telling you all it’s important enough for you to have. Most likely the material I share is something that deviates from the norm when it comes to this site, hell I even posted up Aesop Rock once on one of these and quite honestly, I’m not a big fan of Aesop.

Headshots Tapes
This time around, it’s a group that I’ve posted before in these “Best Of Album” posts and people either love them or hate them. It’s Atmosphere. Yeah, yeah, I’m sure to get some flack, I usually do, but it’s my blog and honestly I’ll post whatever the fuck I want, if you don’t like it, don’t download it….easy enough. I like Atmosphere, I have since first hearing “Scapegoat” back on those shitty ass audio files that Underground Hip Hop dot com have to preview tracks. This Atmosphere collection is something I’ve always wanted to hear myself since getting into them, and that’s the famous Headshot Tapes. Yup, I found them on Albumbase, although they haven’t been there that long.

The Headshots tapes are collection of early Slug/Atmosphere/Dynospectrum material from the early Rhyme Sayers days before and close to the making of “Overcast!”. So if you are one of those cats that like early Atmopshere but not the new version, then your “internet b-boy cred” should remain intact and nobody will question your “gullyness”.

Jack the track listing off of a torrent site, didn’t feel like changing it all around to make it look more “presentable”. I also tried to convert the links from Megaupload, which is what they are on Albumbase, but the Megaupload limit got me before I was able to convert them…so the megaupload links are straight from Albumbase until I have the chance to convert them to something more “user friendlier”.
