10th anniversary edition: Drawing cover, gatefold, UV sleeve, 2/LP.
When Donuts came out, on J Dilla’s birthday, February 7, 2006, it was with this drawing cover (scribbled up by Jeff Jank). Dilla had originally asked for, “some Quasimoto type shit,” and this was it.
As some years passed, the vinyl was eventually reissued with “the smile” photo cover, and the drawing eventually went out of print.
The album is ten years old now. Many new people have discovered the album and the work of our favorite producer along the way. Some still ask for the drawing cover, and we’re happy to oblige.
Here’s the 10th anniversary edition of the album. Drawing cover; new drawing on the back; UV coated sleeve; gatefold with liner notes by Jordan Ferguson, containing an excerpt from his book Donuts 33 1/3 about the making of the album.
