This OG 1991 version is two tracks shorter than the re-issues from 1996 and onwards. Both ”Vibes and Stuff” and ”Skypager” is missing from this OG 1991 solo LP release.

After listening to a recent reissue, an original '96 B&W label, and this colour label version, the colour label easily bests all of them. Very dynamic mastering considering the recording's original fidelity, very quiet vinyl (Keep in mind that a lot of "surface noise" is coming from those samples) and minimal sibilance (Which both other pressings had issues with)

This is definitely the one to get! The artwork is also at its sharpest on this pressing.

Just bought this copy at a record store in Delft - Holland. It was sold to me as a pricey import record so I paid € 40,-. Everything matches this description but the Matrix/Runout has a number added after the A,B and D indicators.

Anyone familiar with this version?

Help please!
Didn't this album get a full release on the US in 1991? I only see a promo and a triple vinyl show edition, and then the European pressings. THANKS!

Who got the vibe, it's the Tribe y'all!! Best hip hop album of all time? It's a contender.
So, this was sold to me on Discogs as https://www.discogs.com/A-Tribe-Called-Quest-The-Low-End-Theory/release/390411 but I was sent this one instead. To the seller's credit, it was sealed, so how could they know without seeing the runout matrices? With the "unknown" release year it seems a touch shady and bootleg-ish, however... I am actually really happy with this, so I don't really care if isn't the true 1996 pressing (it's still sealed and a bunch were being sold new, so what were the chances)... the print quality is sharp on mine, came with plain paper sleeves so you'll need to upgrade if you care... IMO, this is a legit repress of the 1996 remaster, because it has that as the copyright year in the legal on the back cover--I'm guessing it's 2016 or 2017 RP. I do hear some sibilance on maybe half the tracks (as rob.guernsey pointed out), but I don't find it bothersome. How does it sound? It really bumps actually. It clearly sounds remastered to me, and in a good way, nice and dynamic.

i think 1996 remaster has best loud sound, and repress in 2000-2010's seems to be in low quality.
and original issue (in UK only) has clear sound but not loud.

This pressing sounds cheap. Everything about it sounds cheap. Would not pay $30 for it.

Excellent album, but lousy pressing. It’s a double, which is nice, but it’s sibilant and kind of thin sounding. The vinyl itself even looks cheap. The sleeve is a thin single pocket paperboard deal with fuzzy images. Had I not bought this from Amazon, I’d assume this was a bootleg. I don’t know if there’s a good pressing out there, but this isn’t it. Definitely not worth the $30+ this often sells for.

How's the sound quality? I'm so curious... Did someone bought it from Amazon?
