Pete Rock and CL Smooth to re-release All Souled Out 25th Anniversary Album

• February 11, 2016
Pete Rock and CL Smooth - All Souled Out

Pete Rock and CL Smooth – All Souled Out

PRE-ORDER | Pete Rock and CL Smooth – All Souled Out (Vinyl)

As we approach the celebration of Pete Rock and CL Smooth’s classic “All Souled Out” album, Get On Down will re-release the album as a 25th Anniversary gift. Purists and collectors will be delighted to hear that the album will be available on clear vinyl, with original artwork and picture sleeve included. All Souled Out will also be available as a deluxe 2 disc LP, AND an optional bundle will include the 1992 “Mecca & The Soul Brother”

The 1991 classic EP was Pete Rock and CL Smooth’s debut and is credited as being a perfect representation of the early 90’s era that so many of us love. Fans will be excited to own the tracks such as “The Creator” (the only track on the EP where Pete Rock actually raps), along with Go With The Flow and Good Life among others. 25 years after its initial impact, the EP sounds as heavy and essential as ever, and will remind fans how important this duo was to the artform.

Please use the pre-order link above and you can watch my favourite Pete Rock and CL Smooth video (T.R.O.Y) on the YouTube player below.
