James Yancey’s final opus, Donuts , has always seemed destined for the 45-set format – given the compactness of the classic beat suite’s individual tracks and, of course, its title. Well, 45-fixated party people, your dreams have now been fulfilled as Stones Throw has officially announced the imminent release of the J Dilla Donuts 45 Box Set . Spread over 8 x 7-inch vinyl pieces, it not only encompasses the album in its entirety but bonus tracks as well: “Signs” (previously issued on a now out of print fan club picture disc single) b/w DOOM & Ghostface’s “Sniper Elite and Murder Goons” (two tracks, according to Stones Throw, “over Donuts beats which were recorded in late 2005 prior to the original release of the album”).
Based on the product shots looks to be well up to the label’s usual fine packaging standards. Head over to Stones Throw to order.
