Due to COVID-19 and its impact on manufacturing, we are experiencing pre-order delays more frequently. We’ll keep the estimated ship months as up to date as possible, but please be advised.

If you have multiple products in your order, you can choose the ‘Direct Ship’ option to receive products as they become available in multiple shipments. Otherwise, they will be grouped in a single shipment (or your next ROTM shipment for members) after all products are received at our warehouse.

Since pre-order albums are not available to ship until the manufacturing completes, the actual ship date can shift. If there is a delay, we will always contact you.


Blacknuss is a reissue of multi-instrumentalist Rahsaan Roland Kirk's 1972 album. At the time, soul music and jazz had diverged from one another as two separate genres rather than ones that complemented another. With this change, Kirk sought to reunite the two with their shared purpose as a channel of Black liberation. The record features reimaginings of classics like Bill Withers' "Ain't No Sunshine," Marvin Gaye's "What's Goin' On" and more, along with Kirk's titular original "Blacknuss."

The VMP edition of Rahsaan Roland Kirk's Blacknuss is limited to 1,000 copies and is pressed on 1LP Clear with Black Wisps vinyl. It will arrive in a single direct-to-board jacket that is both foil stamped and numbered. The record is mastered by Cohearant Audio's Kevin Gray.
