Donuts is my favorite Dilla’s album, It was originally released on February 7 2006, just three days before he passed away. Stones Throw just announced the release of this beautiful box set which includes the album on seven 45s and a bonus 45 with “Signs” from the long out-of-print Donuts ‘Fan Club 45’ b/w DOOM & Ghostface’s “Sniper Elite & Murder Goons” – two tracks over Donuts beats which were recorded in late 2005 prior to the original release of the album. These two tracks were released digitally in 2008, but have never before appeared on vinyl.
Side D contains the “Donuts Outro/Intro” appearing as an interlude at the beginning of “The Diff’rence” which dates back to the first, original sequence of the album.
Available now here: Donuts 45 box set – Expected ship date is Jan. 7, 2013
