In the digital age, most of us assume that every piece of music that ever was is available at the push of a button. But this week, hosts Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot bring us a Classic Album Dissection of a recording that, despite its significance, is unavailable on digital platforms: De La Soul’s 3 Feet High and Rising. They discuss the making of the groundbreaking hip-hop album, its importance, and why this classic is so hard to hear today.
