Collectors of vinyl will likely be pleased to hear that a rare release is set to make its way to vinyl later this week.
Tupac‘s 1991 album, 2Pacalypse Now will be released on vinyl for the first time in the United States on Friday (November 11). This comes as the LP celebrates its 25th anniversary Saturday (November 12) and the late West Coast great has been nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Respect The Classics, the company behind the vinyl release of Pac’s debut album, will also be releasing the project in another rare form, cassette.
On the Respect The Classics website, a description for the vinyl and cassette version of 2Pacalypse Now states the following:
“To celebrate its 25th anniversary, Respect The Classics is re-releasing the album on vinyl and cassette on November 11, 2016. The 25th Anniversary edition of 2Pacalypse Now will be packaged as a double LP gatefold and pressed on 180-gram vinyl at renowned record plant, RTI. The cassette version will include the original booklet from 1992 featuring the original photos and artwork covering the inner city poet’s rise.”
