The Roots - Do You Want More?!!!??! 3LP Box


Sold out.

Coming two years after their independent debut Organix (1993), The Roots' official major-label debut album, 1995's Do You Want More?!!!??! marked a shift in how hip-hop sounded at the time. While Stetsasonic were known as a hip-hop band, The Roots took that distinction to a whole different level with a full band of talented musicians anchored by Questlove on the drums and two MCs in Black Thought and Malik B.

The hip-hop classic opens with Black Though proclaiming, "You are all about to witness some organic hip-hop-jazz! One-hundred percent groove!" and The Roots follow up the claim and then some with plenty of instrumental and lyrical virtuosity and catalog highlights like "Mellow My Man" and "Essaywhuman?!!!??!"

This vinyl 3LP reissue was remastered from the original tapes and include bonus tracks curated by Questlove. Presented in a trigatefold jacket housed in a slipcase, it also includes a booklet with rare photos, essays by Questlove and Black Thought, as well as a track-by-track commentary.
