Stones Throw is re-releasing the ubber classic “Donuts” by J Dilla on vinyl with a new sleeve matching the iconic CD cover…an exclusive to Urban Outfitters this summer, but so very worth it. Make sure you cop yours, as I am sure these are going to fly off the shelves.
Back late 2005 when we were getting ready to release J Dilla’s Donuts, we made a casual decision to use a drawing for the cover of the 2LP vinyl release, rather than the standard cover photo of Dilla used for the other releases. Fast forward 6 years to 2011, the retailer Urban Outfitters asked Stones Throw if they could carry the album in their stores. Of course, we say. One other request, they say, we’d like the cover with Dilla’s face? Well, why not?
So here it is, better late than never: J Dilla’s classic album Donuts now released on vinyl with the smile on the cover. This can be found exclusively at Urban Outfitters through summer & fall 2011. (Don’t hate!)
