Deluxe CD Reissue of D'Angelo's "Brown Sugar"

So, dustygrooves.com has this listed as a 2-CD with bonus tracks release for August 18th. I can't find a track listing anywhere. Anyone know about it?

This says there are 21 bonus tracks. It's one of my favorite albums, so I'll be getting it for sure.

Does this mean we can start asking, "When is D'Angelo going to release a new reissue?" hmmm

21 previously unheard original recordings selected from the archives or covers or various songs? I'm eager to see the track list, too.

Oh. Wait a minute - there's a 20-page booklet? OK, forget what I said earlier.

I wonder if it might include demos of the tracks from that album. He mentioned in the RBMA interview that he liked the sound he achieved on those, which was less "buttery" than the released versions. I'd be interested in hearing that. Maybe his original demo of 'You Will Know' will be thrown in too. This is all pure (and wishful) speculation on my part, of course. pray

I wonder if this'll include the original demo tape D' shipped around?

Otherwise, I'd be happy with some of the rarer remixes. The Ingonito mix of BS is amazing!

He'd have four albums if you complied his great cover versions of "Space Oddity", "She's Always in My Hair", "Red Hot Mama", "I'll Stay", "Our Love Has Died", ''Burnin’ And Lootin’, ''Black Flowers'', "Sweet Sticky Thing", "New Position" and "You Caught Me Smilin" onto 1 disc. razz

Yes. I listen to it at least twice a week because it´s on my Ipod, and it never gets old. Sure, it´s a 90s album but still sounds very timeless.

It´s ironic that someone who takes so long with his releases is at the same time one of the most timeless sounding artists ever.

At least that´s how I see him.

D’ANGELO’S NEO-SOUL MASTERPIECE, ‘BROWN SUGAR,’
REMASTERED AND EXPANDED FOR NEW DELUXE EDITION


2CD and Digital Edition, to be Released August 25 by Virgin/UMe,
Adds 21 Rare Remixes, Instrumentals and A Cappella Versions


Los Angeles – July 14, 2017 – D’Angelo’s platinum-certified debut, 1995’s neo-soul masterpiece Brown Sugar, is newly remastered and expanded for a 2CD and digital Deluxe Edition to be released August 25 by Virgin/UMe. Remastered by GRAMMY®-winning engineer Russell Elevado, Brown Sugar’s Deluxe Edition adds 21 rare tracks, including remixes by CJ Mackintosh, Dallas Austin, King Tech, Erick Sermon and Incognito, as well as instrumentals and a cappella versions. Of the 21 newly added tracks, 15 were previously available only on vinyl and seven will make their commercial release debuts on the new edition.

Brown Sugar’s 2CD Deluxe Edition is presented in a digipak with a 20-page booklet featuring an essay by noted author and filmmaker Nelson George, rare photographs, and lyrics for the album’s 10 original tracks. PreorderBrown Sugar (Deluxe Edition) here: https://UMe.lnk.to/BrownSugarDeluxePR

Released July 4, 1995, D’Angelo’s Brown Sugar album heralded a new direction for soul music, bridging tradition and innovation. D’Angelo, then 21 years old, wrote, arranged, performed and produced most of the album himself, inspired by classic jazz, gospel, soul, and hip-hop and using a mix of vintage and new equipment to realize his creative vision.

In the Deluxe Edition booklet, D’Angelo’s Brown Sugar co-producer Bob Power writes: “D was one of those artists that came not just fully formed, but truly genre-bending; genre-creating is really more like it.”

D’Angelo’s Brown Sugar collaborators also included A Tribe Called Quest’s Ali Shaheed Muhammad for the title track and Raphael Saadiq for “Lady.” The first album to be dubbed “neo-soul,” Brown Sugar spent 65 weeks on the Billboard 200 albums chart and drew praise from music critics around the world. In his four-star album review for Rolling Stone, Cheo Hodari Coker wrote, “Brown Sugar is a reminder of where R&B has been and, if the genre is to resurrect its creative relevance like a phoenix rising from the ashes, where it needs to go.”

“Young D’Angelo was duly anointed the new musical messiah, charged with leading the culture into a new promised land,” writes Nelson George in his Deluxe Edition essay.

Brown Sugar received four GRAMMY Award® nominations. The groundbreaking album is featured in Mojo’s list of 100 Modern Classics and in Rolling Stone’s Essential Recordings of the ‘90s.

Thanks for the info, Bluegangsta. Would've been better with unheard originals.

Yeah, I was also hoping for outtakes, demos, alternate/extended versions, etc. Seems like a decent collection of remixes, which I'm sure a lot of people will like, but they're just not really my thing for the most part.

Never in the history of deluxe cd reissues has any deluxe cd reissue been worth more than
one penny as they are really just money grabs.

My heart just sank looking at the track list. This is one of the greatest soul albums of all time & easily in my Top 5 favourite albums. I was also expecting exclusive trax that didn't make the cut & extended versions of trax that did. They've fucked this release right up. Even more than the PR Deluxe. What a great shame & missed opportunity!! ☹️
