Jason Jagel for MF Doom's OPERATION: DOOMSDAY Deluxe ReissueJuxtapoz // Wednesday, 27 Apr 2011
Besides being a talented fine artist based in San Francisco, Jason Jagel has built a dedicated body of work creating imagery surrounding underground hip-hop icons, Madlib and MF Doom. The latter work has found its way in a deluxe reissue of the classic MF Doom album Operation Doomsday. . .
For the occasion, Jason Jagel's work of Doom, which we saw on exhibit at FIFTY24SF Gallery last year, which included a standout piece seen above and below, will now featured in the deluxe reissue of the 1999 album, Operation Doomsday. The deluxe edition will be released on June 21, 2011, and according to Stones Throw, will feature 42 tracks, lyric book, tin box, new artwork, and weigh 3.5 pounds.
The full press release:
MF DOOM's debut album OPERATION: DOOMSDAY was originally released in 1999. It has seen at least two different versions on different labels, gone in and out of print, bootlegged, and even released once with a cheap scan of the original cover. This is the first complete & remastered version of OPERATION: DOOMSDAY, containing the original album, alternate versions, b-sides and instrumentals - 42 tracks total - with all new artwork.
Following the CD/Lunchbox release and digital release, we held off announcing the vinyl until we were able to absolutely confirm a release date: June 21, 2011. This is a release of Metalface Records. Artwork by Jason Jagel, art direction by Jeff Jank.
Vinyl Box Set Contains:
4 RECORDS: The album, the instrumentals, b-sides, alternate versions. Tin box with four records protected by paper dividers and cushioned inner box, as seen in the photos below.
LYRIC BOOK: In large 7x7-inch format, 32 pages.
CARDS: The 10 Doomsday MC card set.
