Cool design!

I'd imagine it's starting to be quite rough for the wallets of whoever have decided to collect all versions. Would be some real dedication.

 

Hoping The Diary gets released this year.

Dilla's legacy is slowly becoming the Star Wars: Special Edition Box Set of hip-hop collections.

The print looks cool. Digging the labels as well. I don't get why VMP wouldn't have made this the February release seeing all the history attached to the month and the record. This mostly had me wondering what the 10th anniversary edition is going to look like when it drops 12 months from now. I can't hate on all the represses because it keeps the album available at decent prices to whole new generations of listeners. As a kid I collected The Tick comics but I only had access to them because the publisher was essentially repressing the whole 12 issue series every other year.

This was the original plan.  I believe the change might have had something to do with the realities of pressing vinyl.  With the major labels back in the vinyl game it's added a month to our average pressing time.

I can't speak on all Dilla box set stuff, but Donuts will be continued to be in print and reissued – in good taste – for as long as people continue loving this music, hopefully long enough to outlive all of us. That's not a bad thing for an artist's legacy, it's a part of a legacy.

I wrote about this on the board a couple years back when Mr Gerbick asked "Why another Donuts version?"

Damn you Record Store Day!! That makes sense though; thanks for the insight.

 

 
Edit:
 

but why not the original LP cover?

 

Maybe as an extra little incentive for all us with the OGs to cop? Just a guess.

I don't have it on vinyl but don't think I'll pick up this one, I'll wait for the next one... or the one after that... or...

i'm just glad ST is sticking to its guns and not overstepping its boundaries (ahem, Rebirth of Detroit)...

but yeah, i mean didn't the Donuts 45's come out fairly recently?

See, I have the opposite reaction. Apparently Dilla did nothing but stay in the basement and make beats, so where's all the posthumous releases? House Shoes says he went into the vaults and could only pull out 20 viable beats. But a dude of Dilla's caliber who did nothing but make beats could easily make 500 beats in a year, so how could he have only come up with 20? Where's the jazz and electronic albums Madlib was talking about. I guess it's cuz his estate got fucked up because of politics and money-grubbing vultures like the dude behind that Rebirth of Detroit album. It's sad. They should have done like Frank Zappa and had the family exert total control. Barring that, ST should be in charge of the vault. I'm sure they would handle it right.

Oh damn, did you remember my name or did you look it up?!

 

Like I said in that topic: please, please, please post more oftenly! Or better yet write a Behind The Stones Throw Scenes. Like a liner notes book about all the ST stuff we have no idea going on.

 

Seriously, we need that! If a book isn't profitable,  can't you write weekly blogs or something?

All these re-releasaes and re-designes are strictly for the new fans...we know better.  I'm proud to say I can't remember the last Dilla record I bought.  The only entity I trust with any posthumous Dilla record is ST.  We've already seen virtually everyone in his inner circle botch his legacy...with the exception of, ironically enough, maybe House Shoes.  All this Dilla Day, Dilla Weekend, Dilla Month, Dilla Tribute noise is poison as far as I'm concerned.  

 

...eh, maybe not poison.  Ultimately, it's taken a course I'm not really with, that's all.

Yeah, the last Dilla record I bought was Jay Stay Paid. To be honest all the releases after that are a bit confusing and so many left-overs, random b-sides, beat scraps and what not.

 

I really lost over sight on what's real and what isn't.

JJ (or someone else from ST) - Can you let us know if this is the same mastering as the older releases, or was the album remastered? Same stampers or new ones?
