Finally, a proper release for the rapper’s classic bootleg.
MF Doom’s Live From Planet X is finally coming to vinyl after more than a decade. The live album features a Doom performance recorded live in San Francisco on August 15, 2004 and has previously only been available on CD, originally given away with Special Herbs, Vols. 5 & 6.
Though it includes songs from Madvillainy, Take Me To Your Leader and Operation: Doomsday, some of the rapper’s all time best albums, the original release was frustratingly stuck as a single 38-minute track. Everything about it fits better on vinyl and it’s been given some fantastic new artwork to go with it.
Take a look at the record below and look for it on May 20 via Nature Sounds. Revisit the album’s live version of the Madvillainy classic ‘Accordian’.
