Ten years! Truth be told, it means more to us than anyone else but it really feels special to be able to do this. No matter what happens, History will always be our touchstone. Not only did it single-handedly keep the lights on at this label, but it is the first connection between woods and ELUCID. It was recorded entirely in Willie Green’s kitchen, mixed and mastered by Green, oh and by-the-by, the album features some of the most iconic production of his career. This 10th anniversary pressing is already special but just to sweeten the pot we are making a deluxe version available. In true billy woods fashion, it comes with a book!

To commemorate this 10th anniversary release we are packaging 300 2xLPs with a book put together by billy woods himself. The History of History tells the story of this album with writings from woods, interviews with the artists who worked on it and essays from a variety of sources contextualizing it’s legacy. It was no small accomplishment to get this piece put together but we are sure some of you will appreciate it as much as we do.
