    The D.O.C.: No One Can Do It Better (Expanded Edition). CD

    With the 2015 release of the film Straight Outta Compton, we at Real Gone Music figured it was about time somebody revisited one of the landmark albums of West Coast rap, The D.O.C.’s No One Can Do It Better. The D.O.C. a.k.a. Tracy Lynn Curry was a behind-the-scenes contributor to some of the biggest and most hallowed rap releases ever, including Dr. Dre’s The Chronic, NWA’s Straight Outta Compton, Eazy-E’s Eazy-Duz-It, and Snoop Dogg’s Doggystyle, and his Dr. Dre-produced debut record lived up to the braggadocio of its title by going platinum, spawning the #1 rap singles “It’s Funky Enough” and “The D.O.C. & The Doctor,” and being hailed by critics nationwide as one of the greatest hip-hop albums ever recorded. However, there has never been an updated reissue of the original 1989 CD, which, like most releases of the early CD era, doesn’t really do the music sonic justice. Real Gone Music’s Expanded Edition of this classic album adds seven impossible-to-find 12” single mixes to a remastered version of the original release, along with liner notes by Aaron Kannowski that feature quotes from The D.O.C. himself. No one really could do it better than The D.O.C.—now here’s a better (and longer…75 minutes!) edition of his career-making classic.
