From acid-jazz groovers and jazz-funk movers to spaced-out cosmic explorations and beyond, the 4LP-set Jazz Dispensary: Cosmic Stash opened the door to a heightened musical experience and features some of the most iconic and hard-to-find drum breaks, legendary samples, and a who's who of players and producers including: Bernard Purdie, Isaac Hayes, David Axelrod, the Lafayette Afro Rock Band, the Blackbyrds, Pharoah Sanders, and more.

Comprised of four distinct musical strains - Soul Diesel, Purple Funk, OG Kush, and Astral Travelin' – there is a trip for every mood. Each LP came in its own unique jacket, combining texture and visuals for a truly extrasensory experience. Featuring custom "prescription" labels, each record is designed to reflect the intended effects of the music. And now each of the four Jazz Dispensary: Cosmic Stash LPs are being offered individually. Just what the doctor ordered!

A hybrid fusion of cerebral euphoria and physical relaxation, the Purple Funk strain delivers effects detectable in both mind and body. Common side effects include couch lock, headnodding, and a heightened sense of well-being. You might recognize: one of the most widely-used drum breaks in hip-hop – from LL Cool J and Biz Markie to A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, and even Flying Lotus, you've heard the Lafayette Afro Rock Band's "Hihache." Funk, Inc.'s "Kool Is Back" was used by the Beastie Boys and Pete Rock and CL Smooth for "Mecca and the Soul Brother." The Blackbyrds hold down side two with the perennial classic "Rock Creek Park," which has been touched by legends like Nas, Massive Attack, Eric B. and Rakim, Ice Cube, and N.W.A.
