As already mentioned, the promo 2LP is missing the classic tracks 'I Went For Mine' an 'Feel The Vibe' along with ' Red Light Green Light' and a couple of skits. However, a small bonus for fans of the track 'A Day In The Life' is that it's a slightly longer version on the 2LP than the CD & cassette. The version here ends with a few extra seconds of instrumental before fading out, unlike other formats where it ends abruptly by the 'Last Car on the 2 Train' skit cutting in.

SUPER BRILLIANT RARE CLASSIC ALBUM (Which was even super hard to get in 1992! No joke!)

The ORIGINAL has the following inscriptions in the run-out grooves.

Run-out grooves reads as follows:

Side A: 314-517-239-1DJ-AS-SPI DMM (additional letters SPI-I are written directly under DJ-AS)
Side B: 314-517-239-1-DJ BS-DMM SP2xI-I
Side C: 314-517-240-1-DJAS DMM SPL-I
Side D: 314-517-23940-DJ BS 240-1-DJ-BS-SP-DMM SPI-1 (on side D the numbers 239 looks like they are crossed out).

This is surely one of the best Hip-Hop Albums EVER!! Mad props go out to Diamond for this classic project!

"I Went for Mine" which is on my cassette copy (ha ha still got it!) of the album is surely one of the tightest beats ever created. I remember bopping my head walking down the street listening to this, such a classic piece of hip hop. Busta Rhymes resurrected the groove of this for "New York Shit" which is decent but Diamond still kills it.

This is simply one of the best Hip Hop LP´s from the golden age.

I remember comming home from the record store, light a splif and put the record on, it completely blew me away.
Somehow most of the old DITC stuff is totally classic material that is still more relevant / timeless than other production of that era.
No gimmick's here. This is raw, straight to the point hip hop with funky sampling and dope raps that will put you into the zone.

One more thing, in 1992, record companies were ready to switch from Vinyl to CD's so this LP came out, only as a promo double LP and was so limited, that it was nearly impossible to obtain it, even in 1992! Very quickly white Label Bootlegs were pressed from the CD Version. To be sure you are holding an original copy in your hands, you need to verify that your double LP has a real sticker and not a photocopied one.
