De La Soul Talk Frustration Over Catalog’s Digital Unavailability

De La Soul Talk Frustration Over Catalog’s Digital Unavailability | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

"Do you remember that most glorious Valentine’s Day in 2014 when De La Soul uploaded zip files of their first six albums? I certainly do. It was by far the best Valentine’s Day I ever had (I mostly celebrate Singles Awareness Day) eating chocolates and bumping the eclectic, off-kilter rhythms of De La all evening. Even their best album — the platinum-certified 3 Feet High And Rising — was among the bunch. The links to the zip files were only available for a day, but they caught the attention of Warner Music, which absorbed early hip-hop pioneer label Tommy Boy Records in 2002 and the masters to 3 Feet along with it. Warner obviously wasn’t too happy."
