He's the DJ, I'm The Rapper (Extended 2 CD Edition)

Randomly came across this tonight, looks like it came out earlier this month...

When He’s the DJ, I’m The Rapper originally came out as the first-ever hip-hop double album, it clocked in at just over 82 minutes. Rather than issue it as a 2-CD set, Jive shortened the album for CD release. In the U.S., one of the songs was removed from the album while eight others were presented in shorter versions. To date, only rare 1988 German pressings of the CD contain the original, unedited LP versions of the songs, although even that version left off the last two tracks due to the same space issues. Ah, you know…labels just don’t understand. So now, on the eve of the record's 30th anniversary, it’s time to set the record straight. Real Gone Music’s new, 2-CD expanded version includes the COMPLETE He’s the DJ, I’m The Rapper album for the first time ever on CD, taken from the original master tapes. But that’s not good enough for us…we’ve also added 11 bonus tracks featuring 12” single mixes, extended remixes, etc. totaling 54 minutes—in fact, the four instrumental versions and the live version of “Brand New Funk” have never been on CD, either! Sean Brennan at Battery Studios in New York remasters, Aaron Kannowski supplies liner notes, and we’ve included original album and 12" artwork as well. One of the crucial albums in hip-hop’s move to the mainstream, finally done right!

i'm surprised that the expanded album was released on CD and not on spotify, youtube, and apple music digitally, that's a rarity these days...

It’s been out a couple of weeks.  I got the cd when it came out, vinyl is being released next month.  First time the whole album is on cd, unedited.  It sounds great.

How good is the remastering? Everything sound crisp?

Yeah it’s so good, they took a lot of care with it.  The guy who remastered it was taking about it in another forum, they are really proud.  Good to get all of those 12” Remix tracks in cd quality.
