30th Anniversary Edition 180g Transparent Vinyl 2LP!

Special transparent 180g heavyweight double vinyl edition of Jamiroquai's ground-breaking (1993) debut album, Emergency On Planet Earth, in celebration of 30 years since the formation of the record-breaking funk-soul band and their first single, "When You Gonna Learn."

Presented in a gatefold sleeve with spot gloss embellishments, printed inner sleeves and 12" insert featuring Jay Kay's 2013 and 2017 liner notes.

Jamiroquai made a large initial splash in 1993 with Emergency on Planet Earth, a psychedelic melange of tight funky rhythms, acid rock intimations, and '70s soul melodies. Frontman Jay Kay introduces himself with an environmentally oriented manifesto inside the sleeve, and his lyrics smack of idealist save the planet revolution. But this revolution would be held on the dancefloor if the band's impressive rhythm section had anything to say about it. Horns, string arrangements, and a didgeridoo provide full texture on most of the album's tunes, and the socially aware party vibe raged into the U.K.'s number one album slot. For a debut, Emergency shows quite a range of diversity, from the up-tempo jazzy instrumental 'Music of the Mind' to the stop-start funk of 'Whatever It Is, I Just Can't Stop.'
