Just got the Stones Throw newsletter, figured I'd drop dime:

The reissue of Jaylib's classic Champion Sound was supposed to have dropped on CD on May the 8th, but there was a glitch in the pressing of the CDs, so the official street date had to have been pushed back to June the 12th of 2007. This 2xCD/LP will feature the entire, original Champion Sound album, unreleased tracks, a host of remixes Madlib created, and never before released (on CD) instrumentals of the album. Very momentous release...

Plus, the "advance" iTunes release date is May the 22nd!

In prep, I have been revisiting my bootleg copy of this, and realized that I need to cop the reissue... might even cop the original version of the album, b/c I think the copy of "No Games" I am used to is NOT the version I have been hearing as of late. Who knows.

Peep Jaylib's page on the Stones Throw website for more info. You can also pre-order the 2xCD HERE from Amazon, for the same price as the original album! How ill is that!?

The newsletter also leaked an MP3: "THE MISSION (STRINGED OUT REMIX)". Sickwidit.
