People’s Instinctive Travels and The Paths of Rhythm 25th Anniversary 45 Box

ATCQ 45 Box 1This year marks the 25th Anniversary to A Tribe Called Quest’s People’s Instinctive Travels and The Paths of Rhythm record. Not just a classic hip hop record, but one that has influenced everyone along the way and shaped many who have heard them from the beginning. Leaving plenty of room to grow, we’ve seen them go from being influenced by The Jungle Brothers and De La Soul to being the influencers. Their reach has touched everyone today from Pharell to Joey Bada$$ to Kendrick LaMar to Kanye West and more. Innovative and not always serious, they were able to drop some serious heat lyrically and beat wise throughout their career. If you ask true hip hop heads, Tribe is always on their top lists. So it’s with great pleasure that we bring you this all 45 box set from Get On Down. In collaboration with ATCQ, Get On Down steps it up again with this box set. The original 12″ and their respective artwork were dope, but to have this on the little records with big holes AND picture sleeves, well this is the top of the top for any Tribe aficionado or fan. This thing is miles ahead of those 25th anniversary remixes. Some things should be left alone if possible.

Here’s what is in the box:

-1,000 hand numbered sets
-Eight black “small hole” vinyl 45s with picture sleeves
-45s are housed in a deluxe, fabric wrapped carrying case with 350 degree original album art
-Includes one bonus song, “If The Papes Come (Remix)”, as well as three tracks included on original cd and cassette pressings but not on LP
-14” x 21” Custom Designed Poster featuring original album artwork and group members
-Audio used for this edition is newly remastered by Bob Power (Original Album Engineer and Mixer) and ATCQ
