So if the last music post left you wondering what ever happened to Digable Planets here’s at least a small part of the explanation. My favorite member of Digable was definitely Butterfly, so when I heard he had a solo project called Cherrywine I was pretty excited. The resulting album is sort of middle of the road for me, but this single is definitely strong and while the subject matter is a far cry from the revolution fomenting intellectualism of Blowout Comb it’s still an enjoyable listen.

Back in 2003 when this album came out I was able to catch Cherrywine when they came through Sacramento. It was noticeably underattended, particularly considering the fact that the group was headed up by none other than Ishmael Butler. While it was sort of disappointing to see such a poor turnout, it ended up working in our favor as we got to meet Butterfly and talk with him after the show.

Ahh, I had forgotten all about being left behind when you attended the Cherrywine concert. Thanks for churning up a bad memory.

Left behind?! That sux…i dont remember that. I remember you being over at the house/apt before but i cant remember when we all split up. (wunda why?) i was thinking that show was after scott’s cafe metro gig but maybe it was different nights or different trips… dems was good times except for almost drowning myself in the American river with my weak ass swimming and lungs …

I bought this a few weeks ago…I can’t take it out of my deck. It’s so unexpected, but in a good way. This isn’t ABC rap (not that I expected that from Butler), he makes you work for the experience.

Drove up to see Digable Planets in Ann Arbor Friday and he did That’s What I’m Talking About, and 1 or 2 more joints. The show was tight! Especially seeing him do his solo work.

Anyway, buy it. I’m so turned out on it…like COCAAAINE
