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.

Description


Originally released in 1974, The Soul Searchers' Salt of the Earth is now available. The Washington D.C. soul group, lead by Chuck Brown, influenced both funk and hip-hop by supplying a force behind go-go music and becoming of the most sampled albums in hip-hop music, with the drum break from "Ashley's Roachclip" adding to tracks from Run D.M.C., LL Cool J, 2Pac, Public Enemy, and more.

Limited to 1000 copies, the VMP exclusive version of The Soul Searchers' Salt of the Earth is pressed on Opaque Blue vinyl at Gotta Groove Records. The 1LP will arrive in a single, direct-to-board, foil-stamped and numbered jacket. It was mastered by Mike Milchner at Sonic Vision Mastering.
