Stones Throw Fan Club 45s

By rappcats rappcats
updated over 3 years ago

In our early days we were approached by an online retailer Hiphopsite.com and asked if we'd press an exclusive 7-inch single for them to give away with the release of Madlib's Yesterdays New Quintet album Angles Without Edges. We did just that, and the resulting record was YNQ's "Rocket Love" (STH4001). It worked out so well, we've continued this series of limited-edition 45s on through the present.

Although we have no "fan club" we called these records "Stones Throw Fan Club 45's." Most of these 45s were planned as giveaways tied to an artist's full-length album for certain U.S. record stores. Others have been packaged with the 1st edition of an album. Most of these songs were outtakes from albums, and many of them remain exclusively released on these 45s. Almost all of them are out of print.

There's only been a couple "fan club 45s" in the past few years, but we've never ended the series. Look for more in coming years.
