Vaughn Smith - Diamondz And Pearlz CD


The incredibly rare cassette-only 1996 debut of North Philly's Vaughn Smith has finally been restored on this brand new CD from Dust & Dope Recordings / Hip-Hop Enterprise. Diamondz and Pearlz is a surprisingly mature, understated and jazzy album that sounds better now than it ever has before. Working with Smith, who produced all 14 tracks himself, the original DAT masters were recovered but severely damaged, so this release was remastered by Jee Van Cleef from an original tape. Includes an 8-page booklet with an all-new, exclusive interview by Werner von Wallenrod.⁠

💿️Limited edition run of 300 professionally pressed CDs.⁠
