Product Details
Description
Back in 2002, Shadow was asked by the BBC to record a contribution to their famous "Essential Mix" series, to be broadcast on Radio 1. The gauntlet was thrown, and Shadow was determined to showcase all of the music around him at the moment; contemporary southern rap, garage rock 45s (continuing a thread first started by the Product Placement mix,) and a generous helping of old school hip-hop obscurities. When the two-hour mix was aired, Shadow knew it was bound to be bootlegged, so he pressed up 1000 copies of the instantly collectible "Diminishing Returns Party Pak," available only on this site. The CDs sold out in a month, and one by one the bootlegs began to appear...some taped off of the radio, some just duplicated from the Party Pak edition, and all of dubious quality and description (with some truly amusing errors on the supposed 'tracklistings!')

Now, six and a half years later, DJShadow.com presents the final word on the Essential Mix/Diminishing Returns saga, with an official "last chance" re-release, available for a limited time only. Professionally re-designed and packaged with the type of care and quality fans have come to expect from DJShadow.com. The original, full mix in its entirety, available now for the last time...and when it's gone, it's gone!
