Checking Facts

I read Jamin Warren's double-Madlib review and did a double-take. Here's the blurb in question:

"Madlib's remixes push his differing tastes in hip-hop through his personal beat appliances. As he's done with the The Third Unheard and bootleg Remixes 12", Lib adds a patented new spin on classics and unclassics alike."

Maybe I'm wrong here about The Third Unheard: Connecticut Hip Hop from 1979-1983, but where is Madlib's handiwork on this thing? It's a collection of nearly lost cuts that was compiled by Peanut Butter Wolf. The tracks are the originals. They haven't been remixed by today's producers like Verve Remixed or some shit. I don't have the CD on me, but I'd wager the comp isn't even mixed by a DJ.
