Blu & Exile’s Out Of Print Below The Heavens To Have Deluxe Re-Release
In 2007, Blu & Exile released Below The Heavens on Sound In Color Records. The album was heralded as one of the most LPs of its era, including early appearances by Miguel, and as transitioning Aloe Blacc. Within a year of the album’s release, stronger-than-anticipated sales and sample issues made the album out of print.
It’s been re-released over two years ago, but Fat Beats Records (home to Black Milk, Ill Bill, and others) has announced (via 2DopeBoyz) that they’ll give B.T.H. the ultimate re-release. On LP vinyl, CD, and cassette, the coming out party for Johnson Barnes will re-release on January 21, 2013. The CD version will feature three unreleased (and in trademark Blu style, untitled) songs. The vinyl version will include a bonus 7″ of instrumentals to “Dancing In The Rain” and The Dells-grooving “I Am Blu…” The cassette will also have a bonus cut. If you don’t have it, this is a great opportunity for a Heads’ choice.
