Record Store Day, June 12: Piñata ’84, a single LP edit of Piñata lacquered at half speed master by Metropolis Mastering in London for the highest fidelity. Cover illustrated by Benjamin Marra. The back cover contains a “cut out” showing the LP label.
After the original release Piñata in 2014, a “Pinata ’64” idea was designed by Piñata cover artist Jeff Jank strictly as a concept: “50 years anniversary in the past.” Around the same time, artist Pathetic Pixels created his own personal version of Piñata as an early 70s Blaxploitation movie poster. Both designs existed in the digital realm until being prepared as limited edition releases on Record Store Day, 2020. Piñata ’64 sold exclusively on Rappcats and Piñata ’74 sold in record stores.
Piñata ’84 will be available at all participating Record Store Day retailers on June 12, 2021. Piñata ’64 and Piñata ’74 are completely sold out.
