So I created a folder on the new Facebook page that will house all the new records I find and showcase on the YouTube channel. These will be sold in a huge end the year sale through the eBay store. You can check out the folder HERE!
EDL and Freddie Fonk of DU-O got together with A-PLUS & THE ARCHITECT for your enjoyment. Click the pic!
After the prior release of the "FREE DOPE" "CHAMBER GAMES" and "BLVCK SWITZERLVND" projects, all released during the "COVID Year of 2020", A-Plus and The Architect felt it was only right to end the year in the same pure and gritty way that they started it with, but with some holiday fun. A-Plus and The Architect now present "Cold Country". Yes, it's gritty. Yes, it's imperfect, and yes it's nothing but Hip-Hop. Chris Riggins brings the humor. DU-O brings the chops. A-Plus and The Architect bring the bread. Their gritty music matches the grittiest year we all have ever seen. With lack of polish on purpose, their music has purpose. We hope you can enjoy and learn from it. BIG THANKS to Nicolagypsycola, Kurious, 2Krazi, IMANI, Cochise, Del the Funky Homosapien, Notic, Cold Showda, Ras Kass, Planet Asia, Tajai, DU-O, Chris Riggins, Fanatik and every supporter whom we love, for an awesome year. Enjoy our offering please! Thank You! To Fans and Supporters, THANK YOU!!! 2021 here we come!!!
The OTB family would like to take this time to thank you for your support during this very difficult year and send warm blessings, love, light and joy to you and yours.

December is almost here and the year end sale is looking pretty good. Lots of 45s, Lps and sealed limited pressing will be offered. Be sure to check both the Discogs and eBay store.
Al Marshall aka Alcide has enjoyed a rewarding career as a drummer, band leader and booking agent in the SF Bay area. He has performed and recorded with local and nationally known artists including El DeBarge, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Mary Wilson (of the Supremes), Rich Little, Sly Stone, Bobby McFerrin, NDea Davenport (Brand New Heavies) just to name a few.
Alcide has always been an exceptional musician and prolific writer. Over the years I've expressed an interest in possibly releasing some of his work, it was only a matter of time before I nailed him down. Ben and I recently got the opportunity to start going through his catalogue of music. It didn't take long before we both each selected a song "Wish I Never / Tank Top" for the forthcoming RysQue 7 release. Dripping with the essence of the Minneapolis sound "Wish I Neva & Tank Top" are on two opposite ends of the spectrum musically but will certainly make you move. Alcide's focus when he writes and performs has always been pointed at keeping your fingers snappin and your toes tapping. This limited 200 press vinyl release on RysQue is NOW AVAILABLE HERE! The single will be available world wide via PPU / Ear Cave.
Well as luck would have it this baby has fallen into my lap and I get to bring it straight to you. Picked ripe from the collection of a family friend. Even to this day I still find people who have a random box of 45s they've had since their teens always tucked away in the back of a closet or garage. Such was the situation that brought this baby to me. A friend in Texas just happen to mention she had all her 45s since she was a teenager. DING! DING! DING! the alarms went off in my head.
It was soon after that initial conversation we were sorting through boxes of 45s. So this weekend I will be offering this 45 as well as other items from her collection like Rodger Collins "Foxy Girls In Oakland" as well as some other choice items picked up locally over the last two weeks. You can peep some of the items up for grabs HERE.
Well it seems I did it again. Up at 2 am, out in the freezing cold walking up and down the almost empty parking lot I stroll up to one of the only venders actually setting up. There in my sights one lonely plastic container of LPs and 45s mixed together. I start with the LPs and come up with nothing. I pull out a handful of 45s and there it is. I didn't know what exactly it was I just knew it was an IKON 45. So without even really looking to even check the condition I set it aside.
It wasn't until I had gotten home later that afternoon and only after I had posted a video on Instagram I was made aware of what I had. Fortunately it was a local musician and serious record collector/digger friend who informed me. He had picked up some really cool vintage amps and I had made a comment on his post. He inquired if I had found any records while out digging. I replied "Check out my latest post" I was quickly made aware that I had found an awesome bit of Sacramento history and he wanted/needed to have it. So long story short it found a new home rather quickly. Below is a link to the audio file.
So if you've recently tried to visit my personal Facebook account "Timothy Mudbone Tucker" and the IG accounts "@otbvinyl" & "@mudbonelovesmusic" you probably realized my accounts have been hacked and are now disabled. Hopefully this will be a temporary situation and will resolve it's self soon, if not no worries. Check back here for new account information. Until further notice you can still visit the eBay and discogs stores and the new youtube channel to hear and see the latest finds coming up for grabs. Thanks for your patience as I make my way through this. Check back here for updates.
In other good news the new test presses for the next RysQue joint RR7 have been shipped! Stay tuned for more info.
