Stakes is High
About this deal
Hearing this on vinyl is a decent listen. Nothing spectacular, but good low end. But man, they cut out so many skits, even small ones and if you've listened to this as originally intended its a little strange to not hear them in between the songs. Just silence and the next song. Music is definitely crammed, my record is mint, no flaws and still theres some surface noise between the songs.
DE LA SOUL - Stakes Is High (reissue) Vinyl at Juno Records.
The reason why we cant get a reissue is the conflict between De La and Tommy Boy for the past 10 years at least. Last we heard, Tommy Boy wanted to split royalties with the band 90/10. Deal fell through and Tommy holds the rights to bands first 6 albums. Try looking for it on any digital platform and you cant find it. So only hard copies are available. Which makes it pretty unique because what isn't on Apple music at this point? Offiziellecharts.de – De La Soul – Stakes Is High" (in German). GfK Entertainment Charts. Retrieved April 23, 2021.

Stakes Is High marked the first time De La Soul did not collaborate with longtime producer Prince Paul on an album, as the group felt that the production he turned in for it didn't match the album's mood.
