Back late 2005 when Stones Throw were getting ready to release J Dilla's Donuts, they made a casual decision to use a drawing for the cover of the 2 LP vinyl release, rather than the standard cover photo of Dilla used for the other releases. Fast forward 6 years to 2011, the retailer Urban Outfitters asked Stones Throw if they could carry the album in their stores. Of course, they say. One other request, they say, we'd like the cover with Dilla's face? Well, why not? So here it is, better late than never: J Dilla's classic album Donuts now released on vinyl with the smile on the cover. Cover & illustrations by Jeff Jank; photo of Dilla by Andrew Gura.
