In honor of the 20th Anniversary of Maxwell's Urban Hang Suite, the artist's game-changing debut album, a special 2-LP collection will be released. Pressed on Metallic Gold 12" 150gram vinyl, this LP package comes with an 8-page booklet that includes rare images from the original album and single photo shoots.
The booklet also includes a very special pair of revelatory new essays: 1) an appreciation of Maxwell and his music by noted R&B; scholar, music/culture critic, journalist and filmmaker Nelson George; and 2) a behind-the-scenes reminiscence on the making of Maxwell's Urban Hang Suite penned by music industry veteran Mitchell Cohen, who, as Senior Vice President of A&R; at Columbia Records, signed Maxwell to the label and helped shepherd the music
from raw concept to full realization.
