West Coast rap group The Pharcyde released their debut album Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde in 1992. A quarter of a century later, special deluxe editions of the LP will be made available.
The 25-year anniversary vinyl version includes the original album on two LPs and three 12″ singles. The CD version includes the original album, plus a full disc of bonus material. Non-album tracks, remixes, and rarities are part of the packages as well.
Music journalist Jeff Weiss provided new liner notes for Bizarre Ride II. The project was remastered by Dave Cooley (J Dilla, Madvillain, Madlib).
In addition, WhoSampled teamed with Craft Recordings to create an interactive album experience which allows fans to learn the story of the album, view archival photos/press material, and explore the “Passin’ Me By” samples. The presentation is introduced through infographics, interactive features, and a Spotify playlist.
