Ultramagnetic M.C.'s - Funk Your Head Up LP

Polygram (1992)

I was very pleased to see this record pop up on eBay with a low price tag attached to it recently. I had the CD version of this back in high school. I went to Spain my sophomore year and while on a 7 hour layover in Heathrow airport in London with some classmates, I picked up the CD version of Funk Your Head up at a store in the airport. I absolutely loved it. Such innovative beats, and Kool Keith in particular just had the craziest cadence and delivery. While most people hail Critical Beatdown as the best Ultramagnetic album, I always thought Funk Your Head Up was the one.

Fast forward to 1998, Snuff was staying with me while they were on tour with Less Than Jake. Their guitar player Loz was looking through my CDs and came across this one. I told him he could have it, thinking I'd just pick up another copy. Little did I know it was long out of print, and I'd never see it again. Well, no worries about that anymore as now it takes its rightful place in the vinyl collection, even if the cover is a little beat up.
