The Ultimate Death Row Collection - Various Artists | Songs, Reviews, Credits | AllMusic

Was watching Straight Outta Compton recently and thought to do some reading on the label and it's multiple transfers of ownership. Looks like this might have been the last thing to be put out. Wondering if there is any fire tracks on here?

That's the write up...

"After releasing a collection of Snoop outtakes plus their “Re-Lit” version of Dr. Dre’s The Chronic, the WIDEawake Entertainment group continued their unleashing of Death Row Records vault with their most ambitious project yet. The Ultimate Death Row Collection kicks off with a disc full of hits from the infamous West Coast label’s heyday. With “Gin & Juice” (Snoop Dogg), “Nuthin’ But a “G” Thang” (Dr. Dre), “I Ain’t Mad at Cha” (2Pac), “Regulate” (Warren G.), and a slew of others, it’s a whirlwind of vital G-Funk hits and West Coast classics that finishes on a high note, the fan favorite “Afro Puffs” (Lady of Rage). Disc two and three are where things get interesting, as a series of unreleased and rare tracks present an alternative-reality version of Death Row. From the LBC Crew’s ominous “Six Shooter” to Soopafly’s underappreciated party cut “This Type of Flow,” the collection makes the Row seem much more active and diverse than most will remember. Add to that undiscovered gems like Kurupt throwing some beef Too Short’s way (“Everybody Needs to Slow Down”) Danny Boy delivering a prime G-Funk ballad ( “Rock, Roll, & Bounce”), and Petey Pablo in Death Row mode (“Spit Game”), and there’s plenty here for West Coast fans to savor. One wishes the liner notes were beefier or that all the "Producer Unknown” credits were resolved, though, and putting classic tracks like 2Pac’s “All Eyez on Me” amongst the rarities makes this collection seem confused. Still, these are minor complaints, and when a collection shifts the mystery from “what did it all sound like?” to “why weren’t these great tracks big hits?”, it’s an easy recommendation."

The only release/box set I would like to see is the big 4 of The Chronic, Doggystyle, AEOM and either Dogg Food or Above The Rim OST. BUT to entice me to buy the box set it would have to be the original track listing of Doggystyle, a version of the chronic with unreleased songs ornunreeased versions like Mr Officer, a copy of Above The Rim with Pain on the album, and AEOM with some different versions or something included, probably have Hit Em Up on there at least. Plus it would have to have mad liner notes and new booklets and all that. You don't just release a box set with all old shyt that everyone already has what's the point of that
