Tim Dog - Suckers Never Play Me / It's My Time

Written by  | 19 July 2015

This one isn't technically a new release as it has been available since record store day of this year, but it seems to have flown under the radar of most collectors - Possibly because of the price being so inhibitive - But since the release is pretty dope I think it's worthy of a mention on this blog. 

The 7" sees two previously unreleased demos recordings by Tim Dog produced by TR Love. As you might expect from a release of this nature, the sound quality is rough but it kind of adds to the alure of the tracks - Afterall, they were produced on an SP1200 which definately lends that gritty sound to both tracks. My pick of the two is the B Side It's My Time, which sees Tim Dog flex some serious lyrical muscle over the Commodoress Assembly Line. It's uptempo and rugged - One for the B Boys, although the A side is pretty dope as well. 

The 45 is available on orange vinyl, and only 300 were pressed. I'm not sure how many remain, but it's still for sale through the website below. The one major gripe I have is the incredibly expensive price tag. For me to have this shipped out to Australia it would cost me more than the price of a full length album - making this release strictly for the cashed up die hard collector. Speaking of full length albums, apparently this release is a part of a series of 45s that TR Love will soon compile into a full length album.

UPDATE:
Reports from customers are coming in that this release is now shipping.
