Following last year’s Sessions compilation, Detroit’s Planet E founder Carl Craig prepares to release a limited edition box-set of his 69 releases.

To be released on August 26, this specially designed vinyl package features the out-of-print 12-inches 4 Jazz Funk Classics (1991, PE69-1), Sound on Sound (1993, PE69170), Lite Music (1995, PE69339) and Pungtang (2006, PE 65284). On top of that comes a fifth disc with previously unreleased mixes.

Please note that this special edition is limited to only 500 copies worldwide, 100 of them contain an exclusive t-shirt. Pre-orders can be made at Rush Hour, Clone Records or Juno.

I remember reading somewhere, that Carl Craig wants to maintain a very careful policy on which of the label’s classic records will be re-released. Consequentially, The Legendary Adventures of a Filter King should be regarded as an exception for a few lucky ones.

Sep 11, 2009 Got my boxset today, the design of the box is very beautiful and each of the discs comes in a different color. I’m happy I got me this! However, the t-shirt doesn’t look great at all and the printing quality isn’t the best either.
