By now you know these two things: 1) Ghostface Killah & Adrian Younge 's Twelve Reasons to Die (executive produced by RZA ) is easily one of the most anticipated albums of the year; and 2) Get On Down 's special limited edition packages are dumb nice. Behold their latest offering, an ultra-super-deluxe-exclusive-exclusive edition of Ghost's upcoming project and marvel at all the splendid extras packed in. Blood red and clear mixed vinyl, screen-printed outer box, and a wood-block print is only just the tip of the iceberg included in this package, which is limited to only 100 copies. It also comes with CDs, a cassette, a comic book and more.
From the press release: Get On Down offers Ghostface and Wu-Tang fans the ultimate way to immerse themselves in this amazing new concept album – sure to be one of the musical highlights of 2013 – with packaging inspired by and developed alongside the accompanying 12 Reasons To Die album and comic book (written by Matthew Rosenberg and Patrick Kindlon and illustrated by Ronald Wimberly).
Representing the at-times bloody story of Tony Starks (a soldier for the 12 Delucas crime family), inspired by classic “Spaghetti Western” films, the vinyl in the Get On Down set is appropriately gory – on blood red & clear mixed vinyl – bringing the theme to life vividly while spinning at 33 1/3.
The comic book graphics and album artwork come to life in various ways throughout the exclusive Get On Down “12 Delucas Version” package: the vivid screen-printed artwork on both LP jackets (by AntiDesigns); unique visuals adorning the box which holds the package elements; and through the images used on the exclusive two-sided poster. The “12 Delucas Version” set gives the listener a true “360” album experience, combining the physical / visual and aural, a trait for which Get On Down is now renowned.
