You know you're getting old when...

... albums you enjoyed as a young 'un are getting re-released. First Illmatic, then Whatever and Ever Amen and now, DJ Shadow's Endtroducing..., quite possibly the most important turntablist album, ever.
From Billboard.com:
Highlights include the Extended Overhaul edit of "Organ Door" which Shadow created for Mo' Wax founder James Lavelle to use in his DJ sets, Cut Chemist's Party Mix of "The Number Song," Peshay's previously unreleased remix of "What Does Your Soul Look Like" and demos or alternate versions of "Building Steam With a Grain of Salt," "Best Foot Forward," "Changeling," "Why Hip-Hop Sucks In '96," "Mutual Slump" and "Napalm Brain."

Shadow personally oversaw the update and contributed new liner notes and photos. The booklet will boast excerpts from Eliot Wilder's upcoming book about "Endtroducing...," which will be published in September by Continuum Books.
I feel silly getting a new version of a CD I already own, but dammit, I guess I will have to.
