J Dilla ‎– Donuts

Genre:

Year:
Notes:
Completed during a year in which J Dilla spent mostly in a hospital bed at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, Donuts would gain particular poignancy when, only three days after it's release, February 10, 2006, the artist passed away, losing his battle with a rare blood disease.

The original LP pressing of Donuts had the "Donut" album cover, illustrated by Jeff Jank. The vinyl was later reissued with the "Smile" photograph cover, and the version with the drawing sleeve slowly went out of print. For the 10th anniversary of Donuts, the album was reissued with the original 'Donut' cover, for a limited run with a gatefold sleeve that includes liner notes about the making of the album from the book Donuts 33 1/3, written by Jordan Ferguson. Also released as a 45rpm boxed set (STH2309) consisting of seven 7-inch singles ... plus one extra.

In 2015, four unique numbered vinyl editions of the album were reissued for the Vinyl Me, Please record subscription club. However, most subscribers initially received copies with a defective 'whoosh' sound on side A. In response, Vinyl Me, Please subsequently provided subscribers with a replacement copy of the defective first disc. Discogs Notice: Each variation should be submitted as a unique release. For more information, please refer to this forum topic.

How does this sound compared to the other pressings? Is this worth it or one to avoid? And any other pressing of this amazing album you recommend?

I've got the light blue one. It also came with a bonus 7" picture disc.

The music needs no introduction... But for fanatical collectors with mad love for Dilla, if you want this 1st edition from 2006, pay close attention to the label colour: Pale/muted light- blue on the 'donut'. The etchings in the runout wax should read:

Matrix / Runout (Side A - Etched): STH-2126 A S-60314 DS
Matrix / Runout (Side B - Etched): STH-2126 B S-60315 DS
Matrix / Runout (Side C - Etched): STH-2126 C S-60316 DS
Matrix / Runout (Side D - Etched): STH-2126 D S-60317 DS

The cover art & barcode on this original release is the same as many later issues, so the above combination of label colour & etchings is the only way to tell.

Don't get stung; most are selling re-issues & doing the usual lazy move of banging them into the first/top release page without properly checking, or even checking at all... A popular pastime of sloppy sellers here on Discogs, so be vigilant!

classic 10/10 nothing short of legendary status. objectively the best album in existence, not up for debate either.
