Madlib — January 13, 2016 | Comments (21)


Madlib Medicine Show is a series of album and mixtape releases by Madlib. This is the first time the Madlib Medicine Show “Brick” box set has been released on vinyl. The Brick contains seven albums with thirteen LPs, all of the originally-produced material by Madlib in the series:

In the collection:

1. Madlib Medicine Show #1: Before the Verdict. 2/LP Hip-hop Album feat. Guilty Simpson. Full-length, 17-tracks, combining new material and remixes.
2. Madlib Medicine Show #3: Beat Konducta in Africa. 2/LP Hip-hop Album. Inspired by and based on African records of the early 1970s — obscure & independent vinyl gems from afro-beat, funk, psych-rock, garage-rock & soul movements from Africa.
3. Madlib Medicine Show #5: History of the Loop Digga, 1990-2000. 2/LP Hip-Hop Album. Madlib’s early years, 1990-2000, from beat cassettes produced for local rap crew Crate Digga’s Palace.
4. Madlib Medicine Show #7: High Jazz. 2/LP Jazz Album. All new Madlib productions from his collective of jazz groups and musicians known as Yesterdays Universe.
5. Madlib Medicine Show #9: Channel 85 Presents Nittyville. 2/LP Hip-Hop Album feat. Frank Nitt. Loosely-based concept album around an obscure TV show, Nittyville, running on Channel 85. Full-length, 14 tracks.
6. Madlib Medicine Show #11: Low Budget High Fi. 2/LP Hip-Hop Album. Dirty Demos produced by Madlib, with The Professionals (Madlib+Oh No), MED, Strong Arm Steady, AG, Guilty Simpson, J. Rocc, Supreme Team (Madlib+Karriem Riggins), and Jaylib.
7. Madlib Medicine Show #12 & 13: Filthy Ass Remixes. 1/LP Hip-Hop Remixes. Part mixtape, part beat tape, featuring a host of un-suspecting collaborators that run the gamut from thugs, street poets, star emcees and underdogs. These are select tracks from Vol. 12 and 13 of the Medicine Show CD edition.

  8. Might there be a part 2 vinyl box set with the even numbers? #2, #4, and #10 are my favorites, the ones I really want on wax

  14. The description says it contains 7 albums with 13 LPs, ALL of the originally produced material by Madlib in the series. Can you confirm that the B-sides contain even numbered shows? Also, any news of additional presses coming out in the foreseeable future?

  15. @Mark: “Can you confirm that the B-sides contain even numbered [Medicine] Shows?” No, this does not include the MMS 2,4,6,8,10 – those were mixtapes and will not be released on vinyl.

    Comment by Rappcats — July 25, 2016, 10:36 pm
  16. No, sorry, the b-sides do not contain the even numbered shows. Except for selected tracks taken from #12 that make up the A-side to the last vinyl in the box, the even numbered entries have not ever been pressed on vinyl and most likely will not be in the future.

  17. Okay so I’m here smoking a cigarette but I got no brick in my hand. How do I make that happen?

  18. Does the vinyl collection also include a download voucher? Thanks in advance. Jan

  19. Jan, these ones do not have digital download cards

  20. Why are a bunch of shops stocking the screen printed cover version of Volume 1? Is it a Reissue with a HIt and Run style cover?

    Comment by Simon — October 30, 2016, 2:05 am
  21. Simon, those silk screen covers for MMS #1 sold out long ago, and they’ve never been reprinted. Shops now have MMS #1 with the same cover shown on the digital & CD release.
