De La Soul: Stakes Is High (Tommy Boy); A Tribe Called Quest: Beats, Rhyme and Life (Jive)

Amy Linden, Fi, September 1996

TWO ALBUMS. Two groups. Two release dates. But for all intents and purposes De La Soul's Stakes Is High and A Tribe Called Quest's Beats, Rhyme and Life are this summer's funkiest and wisest double-CD.
