OH SHIT!! Slice Of Spice back with another crazy record from the vaults.. will listen in a minute, THANKS

interestingly enough, i've read interviews with DJ Premier about the whole Gang Starr Foundation thing and he tells the story like this.. around the time after "Daily Operation" GURU said to Preem that they should start Gang Starr Foundation and they would each bring in 3 artists/groups into the fold and they would produce their stuff.

At the time Premo said he didn't really have anyone to bring in while GURU had Big Shug, Jeru the Damaja and Group Home. so while GURU had produced the early stuff for these groups when it came down to come out as G.S. Foundation he was busy with doing "Jazzmatazz" so Premier ended up producing for all three of them.. Big Shug dropped two quality EP:s in '95 and we all know what happened with Jeru and Group Home

it's always interesting when some long lost gems is unearthed from a truly legendary artist and no one in the thread actually comments on the music haha..

i finally listened through all three songs yesterday and found them interesting but they do still sound like demos/rough sketches.. the only track i felt actually held its own as an actual song was the first one, can't remember the name right now (not "Dirty Rotten Demo" and not "The Damaja" but the other one).. nice vamp created from a stand-up bass sample being looped, GURU put in some work on that beat and if you like Damaja (which i of course do) you won't be dissapointed in the least by anything on here. Solid stuff, but it's not something I would buy!

i don't know how i feel about all these labels putting out demo records like this.. from one aspect i like to hear it, it is new music from our favorite artists, often from our favorite eras of their work, and it gives us valuable insight into the creation of some our favorite projects..

on the other hand, this music was deemed unsuitable for the fans to hear a long time ago, these type of artists would, at the time, never dream of letting anything but their best work make it out of the studio for the public to hear. the many demo records that are being released today clearly goes against that and was never meant to be heard in the first place - til' these small vinyl labels (and all respect to Slice Of Spice) realized there was a lot of money in old demo cassettes being mastered and pressed up on wax.

i'm a big fan of pressing up the many lost '80s and '90s albums that were shelved by the record company though.. that's almost the opposite as that's cases of music deemed to be the artists best that they really wanted to present to the audience but due to circumstances they never could.

i kind of feel the same about the Alternative Takes craze that is running rampant on jazz reissues today.. the artists obviously picked the best take when they put together the album.. if i want to hear the artists do different interpretations on their classics, that's what the concert album is for in jazz. to make a film parallel - maybe Stanley Kubrick was right in asking his assistant to burn all reels of deleted material from his films when he was on his deathbed

I listened to all three, I think they dope. The one thing that you notice right away is how 91 they sound. It's amazing how much the sound changed in just a year or two.

I like all three tho. They definitely sound different to his first album, much more jazzy and not quite as dark.

As far as them being released, I think it's a good thing. A lot of times artists like releasing old material, maybe because they wanna show how far they come, maybe because they just wanna reminisce. But I think fans like seeing where the artists they admire came from, I know I do.

Also of course completists wanna have them. Personally I dunno if I'd pay money for demos on wax, guess it really depends on how good they are. But if you're a collector, you'll definitely wanna have em.

And then some of these old demos sound better than recent material that these artists put out too lol.
