Summary

Back in the 90s, "beat tapes," as a Hip Hop producer's demo-reel is now quaintly referred to, were literally that: cassette tapes of beats that a producer made either for himself, his friends, or for potential collaborators. As you can imagine, Madlib made a bunch of 'em in the days between his early productions for the Alkaholiks (circa '92) and the release of his Quasimoto album (2000) - after which he took a couple of years off of the beats to focus on making jazz music with his fictional five piece, Yesterdays New Quintet.

This collection of beats showcases the way that Madlib's early Hip Hop demos were filtered out to his friends and associates and provides an opportunity for a unique view into Madlib's working process: these beats, often freestyled on whatever machine he had at the ready, were picked up by rappers over a period of many years. Trainspotters will find it interesting that beats later destined for the likes of Wildchild and Percee P were made some years before those albums saw release.

This album is punctuated with a series of early solo-raps by Madlib and his Quasimoto alter ego and features the cadre known collectively as CDP - those rappers who worked side by side with Madlib during the days of his Oxnard-based "Crate Diggas Palace" studios.

The Madlib Medicine Show series is a combination of Madlib's new hip-hop productions, remixes, beat tapes, and jazz, as well as mixtapes of funk, soul, Brazilian, psych, jazz and other undefined forms of music from the Beat Konducta's 4-ton stack of vinyl.

The CD includes a 12 page booklet/comic. The artwork is by Benjamin Marra who has created a comic book for the album about the fictional 90s-era Rapper X who goes on a vengeful cop-killing rampage.

Comment: Madlib came a long way into the underground hip hop scene. This medicine show was his absolute best within the series. Brought up from the deepest of crates and deepest of madlib created beats. Some beats you can tell have that 90's hip hop vibe with madlib killin it on the sampler. So many songs I went back to on this album, dope art work too. Im happy to say I bought this one, Id recomend buying this one too.

Comment: I happen to have listened to all 10 medicine show albums and by far it seems that this one was made just for me. This beat cd is just so dusty and crispy that I had to get the physical version. It gets better with every listen and depending on my mood I feel something different everytime. For those who grew up on early stones, lootpack and quasi then this is for you as well, enjoy

Comment: Lol, we did not cancel anyone's pre-order. Anyone who pre-ordered it and did not ask us to cancel their pre-order is getting their copy at the price they originally paid. If you asked us to cancel your pre-order, please contact customer service and if we still have copies, we will honor the price you had originally paid. As for the price increase, we had to increase the price because the vendor we are getting them from cost much more money than the original vendor we got our original pre-ordered copies from. I'm sure you all already know this but the original supplier shorted ever vendor who pre-ordered - we got 1/3 of what we pre-ordered. We had pre-ordered with them 75 copies, and only received 28 copies. We found another vendor who had 40 copies (which we just received), but the price was much more than the original vendor, in turn making the cost go up in price on our site.

Comment: This is one of those archive pieces you wait to hear all your life... so you get it out of sheer dire necessity, because so much music sucks these days, you pop it in the player and BLAUH! It instantly blows you back out of your seat. Madlib delivers that same flavor we miss from the Alkaholik/Lootpack/Quasimoto/Stonesthrow Golden Era type ish. It is jam packed with gems for either freestyling to or cutting up records to. It's not only inspirational... it's pure genius in wax form. This is a great body of work anyway you look at it. The SP-1200 production is clearly apparent on over 20 of the tracks listed. Get yours before they're gone!

Comment: my fear w/ Madlib is that he releases too much material.. causing Loop Digga fatigue, BUT he never disappoints! yes, he has some throw away beats (and maybe even albums), but who doesn't? this album here showcases his earlier beats and who isn't salivating to hear that? for the 1st Medicine Show release, I was able to go to release party and get my vinyl fresh off the press from Hit+Run. These covers are dope and a must in ANY collection. just pre-ordered the vinyl here. $35 is not pricey for a piece of hip hop history!!!

Comment: listening to it now. all of madlib's beat tapes have some concept to it, but this one is just straight raw beats, and that's what i've wanted to hear from madlib for a while. not only the best medicine show, but also his best instrumental hip hop album yet. good to hear him laying down some vocals at the end too. this one won't disappoint anyone. buy it, I know I will.

Comment: 14.97 is pricey??? I remember having to pay like 17.99 for the 1st ODB a few years back... But with the other BULLSHIT medicine shows that have been released I feel you on the paying 15...

Comment: just ordered another copy... i'm thinking of ordering more, but i'll wait for a while now to give sleeping Madlib-diggers a chance to wake up and stop doubting whether the price is too expensive or not.... to me it isn't. Mad props to Madlib for releasing this entire serie... I hope more dope producers will follow this concept on their own... there's definately a small but real hardcore vinyl market for previous-school demo releases out there... keep it on with this kind of releases.............. 5 Stars blindly
