Please don't buy these represses of De La Soul...the band has been getting the shaft for years from Tommy Boy and they deserve better.


Hoping this is good news for the band, as well, but Tommy Boy was recently bought out by someone new and the new owner is actually in talks with the band right now. Not sure, but hopefully.

Got my Handsome Boy the other day.  One of the discs is a much different tone of white than the other - it’s darker and more transparent.

Kinda disappointed with the packaging for the price point as it’s a standard jacket (not gatefold) with the 2 LPs stuffed in.  Given that, there’s a bit of ring wear from the shrink/double LPs.  


I haven’t listened the whole way through the album yet but I n first spin, the audio is good.  Clear, punchy, and nice bass.

I know they are sorting out legal issues with their former label. I had a PO in for it and now it says shipping September 2022. So IDK if that has to do with plant delays, or they just pushed it a bit in hopes that the legal stuff gets resolved. 



My ElusiveDisc order finally got cancelled today after ordering over a year ago

I got this update back in August from Rough Trade



Hi there,

Thanks for being so patient with us.
I'm just getting in touch in regards to your Pre Order of De La Soul with us.

The original release date was due to be this September coming, we've just had some news from the label stating that clearing the samples for copyright has taken longer than expected.

The good news is that the record has now moved past this stage and on to the mastering, but this also means that the release date has been pushed back to next year.

We don't currently have a firm release date for this as it's still in the production stage, but we're staying in touch with the label and as soon as we are given more information about this, we'll let you know.

Of course you won't be charged for this record until your order is dispatched to you.

Once again, thank you for your patience with this, I know it's been a long time.
