Editors’ Notes One of the most beloved and influential acts in the history of hip-hop, Queens group A Tribe Called Quest changed the game with their witty but intelligent lyricism and jazz-enriched production. Part of the hyper-talented Native Tongues family (with De La Soul, Jungle Brothers, Black Sheep, et al), they released five albums between 1990 and 1998, before going their separate ways to pursue solo careers. Released in '99, The Anthology compiles 19 tracks, basically all of their hit singles, a handful of lesser known fan favorites, and Q-Tip's first and only solo smash "Vivrant Thing." Produced by Ali Shaheed Mohammed as well as the Ummah (Ali, Tip, and a young J Dilla), all of the selections here are great, from the early hits like "Bonita Applebaum" and "Luck of Lucien," through Low End Theory standards "Electric Relaxation" and "Jazz (We've Got)" featuring iconic bassist Ron Carter, to their final big single "Find a Way" off their much-maligned swan song The Love Movement. Whether you're a Tribe fan from way back, or a new jack just discovering their charms, this is an excellent collection, loaded with amazing music.
