^^ exactly. They recently reissued Raekwon's classic "Only Built..." as well (not surprisingly on swanky purple wax) when it was not at all necessary. Obviously this is partly a collector's thing—wanting first pressings and all (not all the time though)—but I would no doubt pay $5-10 extra for an OG over an uncalled for reissue if the decision was so cut and dry (and sometimes I'd pay more than that). When a record tends to go for $20-25 at the BOTTOM end of the spectrum (which is not low at all) AND there's supply, reissues are pointless IMO...nevermind the Kenny Rogers-like albums that could be found in any dollar bin anywhere.

Yes,re-issue with bells makes no sense in most cases especially if it's already in circulation.
Hey,Vamo..sorry man I was referring to the added pix and liner notes,t-shirts or whatever you know.NOT the music itself.

Peace.

I want a digitally remastered reissue (with bonus tracks, remixes and instrumentals), of 'Fear Of A Black Planet'. Has Def Jam done that yet?






peace.
