Vinyl Me Please is a record club that serves up a classic album from a different artist and label to you each month. As they put it, “albums that aren’t just good, but essential for any record collection.”
J Dilla’s Donuts (Stones Throw, 2006) is their album for March 2015, available to their existing members and anyone who signs up to the service before March 3, 2015. They’re offering a unique edition of the Donuts double LP: 180g clear vinyl and a gatefold sleeve designed by Jeff Jank with photos by Andrew Gura and liner notes by Jordan Ferguson. There are four variations on the LP center labels, and each record is stamp-numbered. The record also comes with a 12×12″ original art print by Rotterdam illustrator Ready2Rumble.

“With J Dilla passing just 3 days after the release of ‘Donuts’ … this album isn’t just a critical piece of hip hop history, it’s the final masterpiece of an artist who’s influence stretched from Kanye to Questlove. In partnering with Stones Throw we’ve put together a package that we think members will not only be blown away by, but pays homage to one of the greats.” – The VMP Team
