The label will also release Cypress Hill’s double A-sided debut single for April 18th, this year’s Record Store Day.
Get On Down have proven to be one of the best labels to handle reissues this decade and Record Store Day is where they truly shine. They’ve proven again and again a masterful balance of quality curation with creative presentation on releases ranging from a playable postcard of RUN DMC’s ‘Christmas In Hollis’ to a release of GZA‘s Liquid Swords complete with chess board. We’re getting to that time of year when Record Store Day announcements become too frequent to keep up with, but Get On Down’s announcements often deserve a moment’s attention.
This Record Store Day, Get On Down will release a special quadruple-vinyl box set of Jurassic 5’s Quality Control. In addition to both vocal and instrumental versions of the album, the box will feature a 24-page books featuring photos, an essay by author Brian Coleman, and writing from all six members.
The label will also release recreations of two very important debut singles. First is Wu Tang Clan’s ‘Protect Your Neck’ which is pressed on black and yellow vinyl. Second, is the double-A sided single ‘The Phunky Feel One’ / ‘How I Could Just Kill A Man’ by Cypress Hill which comes with a special embossed sleeve. Both releases will feature the original artwork.
Below you can look through some photos of the records for an idea of what’s to come. Jurassic 5 were recently ranked in our feature on the 100 Best indie hip-hop records of all time. Wu-Tang, meanwhile, dominated our Best Albums Of The 90s list a few years ago.
