If you missed out on picking up the classic J5 album at Record Store Day this year then have no fear!
Get on Down has put up their remaining stock for sale. They are down to the last 100 copies of this gorgeous box set, so you best scroll down and click the order button now.
This limited package is housed in a deluxe wooden box (a tribute to the album’s original cover), laser etched with the iconic “J5” logo on the front, and including 4 LPs (2 vocal, 2 instrumental) and a in-depth booklet containing rare images from photographer B+, liner notes by Brian Coleman, and input from all six group members!
With double the pleasure of your average hip-hop group – two DJs and producers (Cut Chemist and DJ Nu-Mark); and four MCs (Chali 2na, Akil, Marc 7 and Zaakir aka Soup) – they brought the late 1970s “unison MC” style of pioneering groups like the Fantastic 5 and the Force MCs to a new generation.
From singles like “The Influence” and the catchy keyboard groove-driven “World of Entertainment (WOE Is Me),” to deeper album tracks like the lyrical gymnastics of “Jurass Finish First” and the thought-provoking “Lausd,” Jurassic 5 make each song on Quality Control like a new adventure while exploring engaging territory.
Limited copies left (100 to be exact) of our Record Store Day release of Jurassic 5‚Äôs groundbreaking release Quality Control, offered for Record as a quadruple vinyl release. A 24 page book is included with extensive liner notes by Brian Coleman including interviews with all six group members and archival photos by B+. The full album and complete instrumentals are included across the 8 sides with each piece of vinyl housed in European style jacket with never before seen artwork. The complete collection is contained in a collectable hard wood box with the J5 logo burned right in.
Jurassic 5 flexed serious old-to-the-new muscles in the ‚Äė90s, beginning with their independently released single ‚ÄúUnified Rebelution‚ÄĚ in 1994, and book-ending with their stellar debut full-length: 2000‚Äôs Quality Control. They walked a tightrope between underground and mainstream hip-hop, and toured alongside rap peers as well as punk rockers on the Vans Warped Tour.
With double the pleasure of your average hip-hop group ‚Äď two DJs and producers (Cut Chemist and DJ Nu-Mark); and four MCs (Chali 2na, Akil, Marc 7 and Zaakir aka Soup) ‚Äď they brought the late 1970s ‚Äúunison MC‚ÄĚ style of pioneering groups like the Fantastic 5 and the Force MCs to a new generation. Even more surprisingly, they did so out of Los Angeles, whose hip-hop flavors generally leaned towards Gangsta, G-Funk or Electro lines. Musically inventive and lyrically forward-thinking, each song on Quality Control is a new adventure, exploring engaging territory, delivered via one of the best live hip-hop shows fans had seen in years.
From singles like the strutting groove of the title track to the throwback doo-wop samples on ‚ÄúThe Influence‚ÄĚ and the catchy, keyboard groove-driven ‚ÄúWorld of Entertainment (WOE Is Me),‚ÄĚ to deeper album tracks like the lyrical gymnastics of ‚ÄúJurass Finish First‚ÄĚ and the thought-provoking ‚ÄúLausd,‚ÄĚ Jurassic 5 consistently stepped to the plate and their fans responded in kind, nearly pushing the album to Gold status. Add the innovative DJ-and-sample workout which closes out the album, ‚ÄúSwing Set,‚ÄĚ and you have one of the 2000s‚Äô most unique and solid full-length platters.
This special release is housed in a deluxe wooden box (a tribute to the album‚Äôs original cover), laser etched with the iconic ‚ÄúJ5‚ÄĚ logo on the front, and includes 4 LPs (2 vocal, 2 instrumental) and a in-depth booklet containing rare images from renowned photographer B+, liner notes by author Brian Coleman and input from all six group members.
