Champion Sound Reissue Pushed Back
by Winston "Stone" Ford
Word comes down from Stone’s Throw that the re-release of Champion Sound has been pushed back until at least June 12th. If you didn’t know, the new re-release will be a two disc set–one side is the original album, the other Madlib remixes and instrumentals as well as new packaging and liner notes. From Stone’s Throw:
NOTE: A GLITCH IN THE JAYLIB 2/CD HAS FORCED A REPRESSING, PUSHING THE RELEASE DATE BACK. WE ARE AWAITING CONFIRMATION OF JUNE 12 AS THE NEW RELEASE DATE. PRE-ORDER IS STILL AVAILABLE. THOSE WHO HAVE ALREADY PRE-ORDERED WILL RECEIVE THE CD ON ITS NEW RELEASE DATE. WE SINCERELY APOLOGIZE FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.
I actually was looking forward to this release. I wasn’t the biggest fan of Champion Sound, but the remixes I’ve heard so far are pretty tight (check the link above -that remix is sick). I’m still wondering what the “glitch” was that caused the release to get pushed back. Did somebody dropped the ball? Hope it wasn’t anyone at Stone’s Throw.
