Digable Planets Beyond The Spectrum: The Creamy Spy Chronicles
- Words: Rico "Superbizzee" Washington
- Label: Blue Note
In the midst of the West Coast hip-hop takeover of 1993, Digable Planets' unique brand of beat poet, speakeasy hip-hop was a welcome breath of fresh air. But a decade-long hiatus can spell death to even the most celebrated of careers. Blue Note issues this best of & "B-sides" collection as a teaser for Digable's reunion album of all new material in '06. For now, the esoteric musings, cool jazz and incense that wafts from tracks like the remix of "Where I‘m From" and "Three Slim's Dynamite" (the latter from the Japanese pressing of Blowout Comb) will definitely suffice.
