After the original release Piñata in 2014, the “Pinata ’64” idea was designed by Piñata cover artist Jeff Jank strictly as a concept: “50 years anniversary in the past.” Around the same time, artist Pathetic Pixels created his own personal version of Piñata as an early 70s Blaxploitation movie poster. Both designs were only existed in the digital realm until being prepared for release on Record Store Day.

The ’64 and ’74 editions are a single LP edit of Piñata lacquered at half speed master by Metropolis Mastering in London for the highest fidelity. The Rappcats version (’64) is housed in a Blue Note-themed cover, a thick, old school “tip-on” jacket, and is exclusive to this site. The Record Store Day version (’74) will be available at all participating retailers on April 18, 2020 whenever Record Store Day is rescheduled. Both editions will be offered once and not repressed.

Could we say that the '64 version is more rare than the '74 version?

Had high hopes for the Pinata 64. The idea of having this album on 1 disc with all the fat trimmed seemed just my style. And I love the cover and concept. But, there is a noticeable degradation in sound quality compared to some of the other standard pressings. It's not terrible and this still makes for a fun listen, but the compression is there. Cut at a lower volume to help with the spacing and so the surface noise is a lot more present than it should be. Not terrible, and easily forgivable considering the album has few quiet moments (especially without the skits).

Never really been a big fan of Dave Cooley's work and wish they had put such a drastic effort in the hands of a more qualified engineer. But, this works great for a loud party or set. Quality materials and a nice option to have on hand.

Note that these came unsealed from the label, so you'll want any "Mint" copies to at least come from an original owner.

This pressing is once again available on rappcats for retail at $40 plus shipping. According to some folks on reddit, rappcats never sold but instead experienced a website glitch that rendered it unable to be purchased for several months. That has apparently been fixed and now the last 150 copies are up for grabs:

This pressing sounds great for how much music is squeezed on each side. They removed pretty much everything except the core parts of the songs (e.g. Supplier fades out after only 23 seconds, after the first "Only the strong survive", and the title track stops after Mac's part). If you like having the interludes all the time, the 2 LP is the better way to go, but if you want to just listen to the most important parts of the songs and only have to get up after 25 minutes or so, this is a great sounding alternative. High quality jacket, too.
