N.B. Due to the very limited nature of this release, copies are available strictly one per customer.

Beginning as a humble beat-tape, Stones Throw saw the potential and released it as a full-length release - needless to say, 'Donuts', released in the summer of 2005, garnered classic status and is considered one of J Dilla's most defining works. This "rap album without rappers" was scrutinised by some critics as being too novelty, or a minor break-beat album; in fact, 'Donuts' would break the definition of a hip-hop album - sourcing unique samples, producing original beats that would segue the ideas of a 'DJ mix' into beat-making via J Dilla's potent creativity. Perfectly encapsulating Dilla's reputation amongst his peers and fans as the definitive architect of soulful hip-hop.

This box set includes the album on seven 45s and a bonus 45 with 'Signs' from the long out-of-print Donuts 'Fan Club 45' b/w DOOM & Ghostface's 'Sniper Elite & Murder Goons' - two tracks over Donuts beats which were recorded in late 2005 prior to the original release of the album. These two tracks were released digitally in 2008, but have never before appeared on vinyl.
