Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde

Last week Fullerton, CA record store and label Burger Records issued a 20th Anniversary Edition of The Pharcyde's debut album Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde on cassette, simultaneously with a vinyl reissue on the band's Los Angeles home-label Delicious Vinyl. I like to imagine someone at Delicious Vinyl proposed the collaboration on the spot, after walking into the shop and finding out that they were still regularly pressing tapes in batches of 250 to 500. Unfortunately now sold out, Delicious Vinyl's limited edition box set version included seven different colored 7"s in sleeves and an honest-to-God "box", a double CD, a 21" x 28", and a 120 piece jigsaw puzzle featuring the original album art.

Grab the cassette from Burger or hold out for a new run of the boxed sets from Delicious Vinyl. If you're interested in some more reading on the re-issue and the Pharcyde, check out an interview that Delicious Vinyl did with former Pharcyde-member Fatlip here
