180g audiophile LP'The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill' is the critically and commercially acclaimed solo album by female Fugee Lauryn Hill. Originally released on August 25th , 1998, it has been widely praised for its seamless fusion of R&B, Hip Hop, Reggae, Gospel, and Neo Soul. The songs vary in style, but make for a cohesive album. In 1999, the album garnered no less than 10 (!) Grammy nominations at the 41st Grammy Awards. When Hill won 5 Grammies that night, this achievement made her the first female to receive that many in one night. The album includes collaborations with soul singer D'Angelo on 'Nothing Even Matters'; guitarist Carlos Santana on 'To Zion'; singer Mary J. Blige on 'I Used to Love Him' and well as then little-known John Legend plauing the piano on 'Everything is Everything'. Although Wyclef Jean offered his production skill for the album, Hill declined his input and took the chance of standing on her own 2 feet, without fellow Fugees Wyclef and Pras.Over 10 years after its original release Hill's debut solo album has proven to stand the test of time easily. For your listening pleasure, we present the 16-track album on 180 grams audiophile vinyl.
