“Turntables By The Bay Volume 1”
Hip Hop Slam HHS-020
LP Released in 2001
The Turntables By The Bay series was the premier compilation series to capture the exploding turntablism movement in and around San Francisco. There were explosions of the scene in many cities at the time, and several compilations documented the field, but this series was the only one to target such a specific artistic base.
In this first volume, we have a collection of the very best DJs from the area, including DJ Shadow, Peanut Butter Wolf, D-Styles, Mix Master Mike, Eddie Def and the Invisibl Skratch Piklz. This combines both studio & live recordings, and this was the first appearance on vinyl for 9 of these 10 songs. Many were never released again.

The grade of the record is NM with almost no sign of use. The cover grades to NM as well, with beautiful artwork, sharp corners and no splits, tears, stickers, stains, creases or cutouts, and is still in its original opened shrink wrap. This came from a personal collection, and has basically just been shelved for the last 11 years.
