Vaughn Smith - Diamondz And Pearlz - 2023

3 months after the reissue of the album "Livest Spot In The City" on 90's Tapes, Vaughn Smith is back with the help of Dust & Dope Recordings and Hip Hop Enterprise with the release of his debut album entitled "Diamondz and Pearlz" which was originally dropped on tape in 1996. 

"The incredibly rare cassette-only 1996 debut of North Philly's Vaughn Smith has finally been restored on this brand new CD from Dust & Dope Recordings / Hip-Hop Enterprise. Diamondz and Pearlz is a surprisingly mature, understated and jazzy album that sounds better now than it ever has before. Working with Smith, who produced all 14 tracks himself, the original DAT masters were recovered but severely damaged, so this release was remastered by Jee Van Cleef from an original tape. Includes an 8-page booklet with an all-new, exclusive interview by Werner von Wallenrod.⁠"

Available on CD (300 copies) / Vinyl coming Soon... stay tuned ! 

Shipping : Mid-January 2024
