By popular demand – a second edition of the lost James Brown/Bootsy Collins album
We quickly sold out of the first run of the J.B.’s These Are The J.B.’s album. So fast, in fact, that we were inundated with requests from funk fans who couldn’t fathom that a record that was meant to sell for $25 wasn’t available in their local store and was appearing on the secondary market for between $35 and $50.
They asked us to remedy the situation and we did.
We’re pleased to announce that we have produced a second edition of the album in production. Copies are now in stock and shipping via our Rappcats webstore.
Here are the differences between the first and second editions.
– The first edition comes in an old-school, thick-cardboard, “tip-on” LP sleeve – the second edition comes in a regular, “new-style” LP sleeve.
– The color way has changed for the second variation (see above for the way the second variation will appear).
– The second edition is labeled “second edition” in the legal line on the back.
All else remains the same: same quality of wax, same booklet, same funk. But we wanted to make sure the folks who bought the first edition had something special and there would be no confusion between the two issues.
