    Personally, I would want Run-DMC "Tougher Than Leather", but I would guess Beastie Boys "Licensed To Ill" would be the next one.

    Boo. Beasties has already been reissued enough. I vote Tougher Than Leather but am pulling for something a tad more hardcore.

    Youre probably spot on though.

    Makes me curious, what Mofi release has the most "explicit lyrics"?

    If this is a one off hip-hop release I will fall into a deep depression.

    I know this wasn't addressed to me, but my pick would be Public Enemy's "It Takes A Nation Of Millions..."

    Shawn Britton really wanted to do that one so they've tried. Hope they keep trying. Apparently Ron McMaster remastered it for vinyl and he said it took him like three or four tries, so it may be a tough one to master, at least for vinyl.

    Anyone know what the hold up is with the 45 RPM vinyl?

    MoFI said on their instagram it should be coming soon.

    I slept on the preorder, but my local said they should be getting some.

    For another Novelty Record I recommend some Weird Al, maybe "Eat It"?

    Golden Throats? Elmo and Patsy? Allan Sherman?

    All outstanding classics of course, but I put my request in for Slim Whitman from the very beginning, so get in line!

    Is there anything more tired than rap-hating? This album has been out for 34 years.

    I’d much rather blast Raising Hell than try to to wade through the wimpy, unintelligible murk that is Murmur. REM....puss-rock personified! :unhunh:

    Nation of Millions would be a great candidate, the Geto Boys mugshot album would be amazing, but probably too controversial even after (or especially after) all these years.

    Two other good candidates would be: Cypress Hill's debut S/T album (1991) and Tribe Called Quest's Low End Theory.

    Just the song "Eat It", or the album "In 3-D"?

    It think I read somewhere that clearing some of the samples became a hurdle that delayed the eventual deluxe edition of "Nation", which is why I didn't mention it. I agree it would be a perfect choice, though.

    Personally, would love to see MFSL remaster a rap release that has only been released on a brickwalled CD (vs. a release that already has a pre-existing, competently-mastered CD counterpart).

    Vinyl Me Please has done a lot of well-mastered rap vinyl, at least according to online reviews I’ve seen, as I don’t buy rap. But I did see a video of guy rating his favorite Vinyl Me Please titles, and he praised a lot of their rap titles as better than any previous vinyl release, if there even was a previous vinyl release.

    I see posts above saying this has already sold out. Vinyl is still available for preorder on Elusive Disc.

    Eh, what will probably happen is that they probably dont know whats up with the release exactly either. I got a preorder in; but unlike when Music Direct (the main distributer) has a title on preorder/backorder and comes through, Elusive doesnt have that advantage. The Trickle Down Audiophile effect. Ive had it happen before with them and acoustic sounds when it comes to MoFi stuff.

    Im not betting on ED to come through with my pre-order. Not really their fault . I get the idea they are kind of in the dark somewhat in these situations. But, if it comes through Ill be pleasantly surprised.

    Raising Hell was a great choice, here's hoping they continue the variety. It would not hurt to send in suggestions to Music Direct.

    I see it listed in the usual outlets (The SACD) for $29.99. But with only 2000 it might be unwise to wait too long before ordering.

    I would love to see By All Means Necessary by BDP.

    I would also love to see something like The Many Facets Of Roger. Listening to this Run-DMC SACD and hearing how dynamic is makes me yearn for hearing some of Roger Troutman’s tight funk that you know was being spun by these guys. That album is so freakin’ dynamic!
