Crazy Town The Gift of Game 25th Anniversary Edition!

Pressed on "Yellow Butterfly" colored vinyl

Vinyl debut includes a lyric inner sleeve plus a bonus track from the CD release!

"Come my lady/Come-Come my lady/You're my butterfly, sugar baby"... If there was a song-track to the turn of the millennium, Crazy Town's "Butterfly" was it, starting with its appearance on the 1999 album Gift of Game and winding up with its reign at No. 1 in the charts in February 2001. Anchored by a sample of Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Pretty Little Ditty," it forever defined the term "nu-metal power ballad," and was a rare-for-the-genre love song to boot!

But the album from whence it came didn't fly as high as it did, with more than 2.5 million copies sold, just because of "Butterfly." The Gift of Game brings the noise with an all-out alternative metal assault, and the band's rappers-bolstered by guest appearances from KRS-One and Mad Lion-are markedly better than their rap/metal contemporaries. And then there's the album art, created by member Shifty Shellshock's father and uncle, which lends a vivid rendering to the fantasies of every teenage boy listening to "Lollipop Porn."

In short, this was a freakin' HUGE record that somehow...somehow!...has NEVER been on vinyl. So how to handle its momentous debut on its 25th anniversary? Well, first, Real Gone Music has created an inner sleeve with all of the lyrics (and there are a lot of ‘em). Our sources also tell us that the very explicit hidden bonus track on the CD release has mysteriously made it on here. But when it comes to the vinyl, given what we anticipate is going to be, ahem, crazy demand, we have pressed the record in two different colors, one in "Red Devil Velvet" vinyl and the other in "Yellow Butterfly" vinyl. Come dance with us and Crazy Town...twice!
