I’ll be posting weekly updates on album release dates from now on. So, for tomorrow, here’s what’s up:
Goblin Cock – Come With Me if You Want to Live – Robcore
Rob Crow’s metal.
Holy shit, it’s been 20 years since Tone Loc and “Wild Thing”! If that doesn’t make you feel old, you’re young. In celebration, Delicious Vinyl is releasing a special edition of this classic album on Jan. 27th. And yeah, it’s classic. Six bonus tracks are included: “On Fire (OG 12″ version)”, “Cheeba Cheeba (OG 12″ version)”, “I Got It Goin’ On (Remix)”, “The Homies (On Tilt Mix)”, “Wild Beat,” and “Funky Beats.”
If that ain’t enough, Delicious Vinyl will be releasing a slew of 20th Anniversary albums this year, including Masta Ace, Brand New Heavies, and Young MC. Keep your eyes open.
