Beyond The Spectrum: The Creamy Spy Chronicles (Hits, Remixes & Rarities)
Digable have been doing their thing forever. It could even be argued that they are the originators of bringing a heavy jazzy feel to hip-hop and paving the way for a lot of artists today. Members of Digable have been doing the solo thing for the past years, with Shock G and Ladybug each dropping a full length here and there. The group has recently reunited and are in the process of touring around the country. "Beyond The Spectrum" compiles some of the best hits, remixes, and rarities that Digable Planets have to offer. The album gives you all the obvious hits you'd expect like "Cool, Like Dat", not to mention you get some great raritities like "Three's Slim Dynamite", previously only avaible on the Japanese version of "Blowout Comb". The inclusion of "Dedicated", the b-side of the hard to find 7' of "Dial", is almost worth the price of admission alone. 12" remixes of "Where I'm From" and "9th Wonder" round this comp out quite nicely.
