And more! This time, they’re adding “16 bonus cuts, rarities and assorted nonsense.” And as with Paul’s, you’ll be able to get it in a variety of formats, including 4 LP vinyl.
Bonus tracks: Dub the Mic – Instrumental; Pass the Mic Pt. 2; Drunken Praying Mantis Style; Netty’s Girl; The Skills to Pay the Bills (Original); So What’cha Want (Soul Assassins remix); So What’cha Want (Butt Naked version); Groove Holmes (Live vs. the Biz); So What’cha Want (All the Way Live Freestyle); Stand Together (Live at French’s Tavern); Finger Lickin’ Good (Government Cheese); Gratitude (Live at Budokan 9/16/92); Honky Rink; Jimmy James (Original Original version); Boomin’ Granny; Drinkin’ Wine.
This album, more than any other that I can think of right now, defines my college experience. And for a moment I knew what it was all about… Namaste.
