Vinyl Me, Please, the “best damn record club out there,” in association with Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, have announced that a special 20th Anniversary double LP 12″ vinyl edition of Fugees’ The Score will be available exclusively to VMP members as the club’s “Record of the Month” for April 2016.
VMP’s 20th Anniversary Edition of The Score includes the original album (pressed on 2 LP split-color black and gold vinyl and housed in a gatefold sleeve) along with a bonus 7″ gold vinyl single featuring three bonus tracks (previously unavailable on vinyl): “Fu-Gee-La” (Refugee Camp Remix), “Mista Mista” and “Fu-Gee-La” (Sly & Robbie Mix).
VMP members will also receive a 12″ x 24″ Fugees fold-out poster with this highly collectible 20th Anniversary vinyl edition of The Score.
Originally released on February 13, 1996 on Ruffhouse/Columbia Records, The Score was the second (and final) studio album from Fugees, a revolutionary alternative hip-hop group comprised of rapper/singer/producer Lauryn Hill, rapper/singer/producer Wyclef Jean and rapper/producer Pras Michel. The Score — with its visionary mix of hip-hop, soul, reggae, audacious sampling and cinematic aural textures — became an indomitable force in pop music and culture, a landmark of hip-hop and a soundtrack for the decade.
