Notes

The original pressing of the LP was available with green, red and black frames. The characters in the background are different on each of these versions. The black frame version is considered the rarest of them whereas the red frame version has the same characters that appear on the cover of the CD version. The single vinyl repress from the early 2000s was only released with the green frame.

(Quick Review #7)
Listen: #1

First time I've ever heard anything from Tribe Called Quest and I enjoyed it. This isn't the kind of style of music I normally listen to, the production is much different from the normal stuff I listen to but I enjoy it. I didn't think it was a masterpiece to me personally but hey it was an enjoyable thing to put on and listen to front to back

Decent to Strong 7

Great pressing, especially for a 50 minute album single disc album that runs pretty long on both sides. Very little inner grove distortion.
