Out of print since 2005, the Greenhouse Effect album Columbus or Bust is now available again for the first time. It is now a double-cd that includes the instrumentals to the album. Now shipping for $8
Columbus or Bust is the third release from the Greenhouse Effect crew and the follow-up to their debut full-length album Life Sentences. Produced entirely by Blueprint, with guest appearances by Murs and Jakki the Motormouth. Rhymes by Blueprint & Fess. Written and recorded during the same time period as 1988, and released the same year
Back in 2005 Greenhouse Effect released a record called Columbus or Bust right around the same time that 1988 came out. Because we wanted to try to get better distribution situation for the record we licensed it to a label called Raptivism records. Boy was that a bad idea. Basically, they didn’t do anything they were supposed to do and looking back we would’ve been better off releasing this album ourselves.
Columbus or Bust has been out of print for a very long time (mostly because we didnt want to risk them pursuing us legally) but as far as I know Raptivism isn’t even in business anymore, so we think its high time this record was released properly. So, in January we will be rereleasing a delux version of the Columbus or Bust. It will be available for the first time Tuesday January 26th on iTunes, and the delux 2CD version will ship from our site on the 26th. We will also release the promo version on the 26th.
The delux version will include revised artwork, all instrumentals, as well as a 11×17 poster, sticker, and maybe even some other promo that’s not listed yet. For now check out the below song to get a taste of what the album sounds like:
