Record Store Day Release. Short Dog's In The House - Too $hort. Record Store Day Release 2018. Format: LP. Short Dog’s In The House was $hort’s sixth album, and his second for the Jive label. By the time it hit, he was a West Coast legend, but his rep was growing Eastwards, as the rest of the country started opening its ears to new sounds. Peaking at #20 on the national Billboard 200 chart, the album was exactly what his dedicated fans expected – funky, 70s-drenched beats made for cars on the boulevard; and no-nonsense lyrics that made more sense and dropped more knowledge than he was ever given credit for. Presented here on black wax with a poster of the excellent cartoon cover graphic, it’s time to give this one a spin, whether it’s the first or 100th time.
