Kanye West - The College Dropout Remastered Vinyl Reissue?

Recommended Posts

As many of you know the only The College Dropout has only been available on vinyl with the non remastered Brown cover version. It seems that Respect the Classics, who recently reissued 808s on vinyl and Yeezus on cassette, may have also reissued the Remastered version as you can see in the picture above from their website with the album having the White background. Has anyone purchased this album from them and can confirm? I have reached out to them on facebook and am still waiting for a response. In the meantime you can check out the listing on their website below:

I have a copy of the white. I think it's just what was released overseas. It doesn't sound any different. 

This was just posted by these guys recently they have been reissuing tons of older albums on 180g vinyl. How long ago did you get a White cover, also can you post pics I have never seen an official white cover vinyl, it's not on discogs or ebay. 

 

Edit: I did see the White as the Europe version but that was released in 2004, this is a brand new posting and these guys are american who are reissuing everything.

Obviously I'm a Kanye STAN so I get everything I can of his

I copped it on Discogs the one time I saw it pop up

 

They may have just used the white as a mock-up by accident when putting together the promo image. I'd be interesting to hear details about if it's a remaster pressing.

One thing of note, the original pressings did not have skits, the tracklisting for this has skits. This might be the real deal.

I have on OG not the repress, but I believe the only difference between the 2 is the CD that is included has a different design on it in the repress.

 

The original has a unique design on the CD.

thanks fam I have the original so I'll double check my CD and if it is different I'll have to get this one too.

fyi the pic on their site is of the original pressing as well for 808s. Here is a video of someone opening the reissue with the different CD

So what do you think our chances of seeing Swi... I mean "WAVES" get a vinyl release?

I think it's back to having no name now, cause he changed it again. And god I hope so. The first couple single designs are very similar to the MBDTF design but with black instead of red. I would loveeeee a pressing just like MBDTF with a bunch of interchangeable artworks. Also he has the album split up into three different acts, so I could see it getting the same 3xlp treatment.
