About this deal
Toto konkrétní vydání vyšlo v Evropě ve vydavatelství Aftermath Entertainment ve spolupráci s Interscope Records a UMe dne 15. It feels like they took their time with this one, unlike some newer vinyl represses where everything is everywhere.
As for this pressing, I first thought it was ok when playing it on my audio-technica turntable, but it sounds very lackluster since I've upgraded my system. One double-sided track credit sheet, no gatefold, no additional artwork or artist testimonies, just normal, great-sounding wax.gallery quality giclée printed cover by Kehinde Wiley, fixed to a black custom dyed linen wrapped vinyl jacket. Listening to it from start to finish is to spend 90 minutes as a fly on the wall of the lives of Snoop, Dre, Eminem and all the rest of the high profile guests.
But it is also still very right when it comes to g-funk, west coast rap and second wave hip hop sounds. Mine has multiple variant sides that are listed here except also includes one of the side's dead wax numbers with a "/K" at the end of the number.
Mine is actually a misprint - while all sides of both discs of the album are pressed correctly with the right tracks, the labels on disc 1 show the songs for Side A on both sides of the disc. Virtually identical to the original 1999 pressing by Aftermath, as well as the 10 year anniversary 2009 pressing.
Album bylo směsicí oldschoolového a newschoolového rapu a obsahovalo spolupráci s umělci jako Snoop Dogg, Eminem a Xzibit.Not as bad as Doggystyle's digital remaster, but come on… when comparing it with an original CD, or even with the Spotify version, it sounds clear to me that the sound on this one is way too dull.
