When you’re out of new beats and rhymes, there’s nothing better than to make some cash by collecting parts of your old catalogue on tasty formats. We already told you about “Special Herbs Vols. 0 – 9”, a box set including new vinyl issues of the ten first volumes of “Special Herbs”, the series of instrumental records by MF Doom –accompanied by an exclusive poster, a download code for all of the tracks and an exclusive 7”. In the end it seems that the box hasn’t only been made according to the amount of orders, as was announced at the time, so you will be able to find it in stores as from 1st February, via Nature Sounds/ Fat Beats. And if you want to –and can – add even more goodies from the masked supervillain to your collection, you’ll be happy to know that MF DOOM himself will be reissuing his debut album on two very special formats, via his own Metalface Records. At some unspecified point this spring, “Operation: Doomsday” (SubVerse/Fondle'Em, 1999) will be made available again as a “lunchbox” (two CDs in a metal lunchbox) and as a set of four vinyl records in a metal case. Both formats contain 51 tracks (the 19 of the original tracklist plus a fistful of instrumentals, alternate takes and B-sides) and a booklet with lyrics and a set of cards featuring artwork representing the Operation Doomsday MCs. Soon you will be able to pre-order at the Stones Throw online store, so start saving up now.
