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.
