Blue Note Classic Vinyl Reissue Series!
180g Vinyl Double LP!
Mastered by Kevin Gray from Original Analog Tapes!

The sound of Blue Note had been embedded in hip hop through sampling and remixes since its early days, but Madlib raised the bar when the DJ/producer/rapper/musician invaded their vaults for his 2003 masterpiece, Shades of Blue - a visionary album featuring remixes/reimaginations of classics by Donald Byrd, Bobbi Humphrey, Ronnie Foster, Bobby Hutcherson, Wayne Shorter and more. Blue Note Classic Vinyl Series is all-analog mastering from the original master tapes and pressed on 180-gram vinyl.
