Instrumental version of this Record Store Day banger! The tracks come straight from multi-track masters found on 2-inch tape shortly after Dilla's passing in 2006. Many were mixed by Dilla himself. Those that weren't have been mixed by engineer Dave Cooley, who worked extensively with Dilla during his years in Los Angeles. Using Dilla's original demo mixes as his guide, Cooley attempted to finalize Dilla's vision for these tracks, while keeping all of the elements that Dilla had in place in his original demos present. The Diary is now available as an instrumental release, featuring production by the likes of Madlib, Pete Rock, Nottz, House Shoes, Karriem Riggins and others. This is a must have for the vinyl collection.
