Mecca And The Soul Brother (2 CD & 2 LP Bundle)
Pete Rock & CL Smooth
Get On Down proudly presents Mecca And The Soul Brother, the critically acclaimed 1992 full-length debut from Pete Rock & CL Smooth on both LP and CD. This album is considered one of the greatest Hip Hop albums and is now available on clear vinyl for the time ever.
Boasting tracks such as the first single, “They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)”, a dedication to their deceased friend; “Trouble T-Roy”, which went on to become not only their signature hit, but also one of Hip Hop’s all-time great songs. Other classics such as "Straighten It Out", ""Skinz" (Featuring Grand Puba), "For Pete's Sake", "Soul Brother #1" and the posse cut "The Basement" (Featuring Heavy D, Rob O, Dida & Grap Lover) all showcase the albums amazing versatility. The album is propelled forward by Rock’s quick, soulful interludes; usually bits of old R&B tunes layered with his signature trumpet and sax loops.
The Vinyl comes on clear Vinyl, while the CD comes as a 2 CD boxset. The first CD features the original 16 album tracks, remastered from the original masters recordings. The second disc contains 15 remixes, bonus versions and exclusives. Tracks such as "It's Not A Game", "Lots Of Lovin'"(Remix), "Straighten It Out" (Remix), "They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y)" (Remix), "The Basement" (Instrumental), "Ghettos Of The Mind" (Acapella) plus many more! Both discs come housed in individual ‘paste on’ style sleeves with brightly-colored printed dust sleeves along with indepth liner notes with Pete Rock and CL Smooth. All this plus a full sized poster to boot. This reissue of an early 90s classic is a must have for any music collector or fan of good music.
