Theo Parrish Ugly Edits Released On 2CD

Later this month, Theo Parrish will be releasing all eight Ugly Edits as a 2CD package. There’s no official release date announced, but shipping dates suggest that Ugly Edits will be released towards the end of this month.

The original Ugly Edits, Parrish’s re-edits of Jill Scott, The Dells, Minnie Ripperton, Funkadelic, Etta James and others, were released in limited numbers, and hand spray painted by Parrish. Short runs meant a number of bootleg and pirate editions cropped up.

The 2CD set will also be released in limited numbers, and sites that will be stocking Ugly Edits are recommending pre-orders.
