Slaughterhouse on the Prairie is the twenty-third album by Buckethead. It features the songs "LeBron" and "LeBron's Hammer" dedicated to LeBron James on his 24th birthday. The songs were previously free downloadable songs from Buckethead's official homepage along with another song called "King James" from the album Crime Slunk Scene (2006), which also refers to the basketball player. The album includes another basketball related track, "Iceman", dedicated to George Gervin.
By the end of 2009, all copies of the album had sold (along with A Real Diamond in the Rough) without any repressings lined up by the label. TDRS Music requested that fans pre-order the album (with no definite release date) and that once a threshold had been reached, the album would be pressed. The same process was run for Buckethead's 2006 album Crime Slunk Scene. It was announced along with the release of the album Best Regards that the repressing would go ahead, although the level of pre-orders had not been as high as expected.
