My first press the sleeve says P1 57128 but the label says PI 57128 , should it be P1 on the label ? I’ve got another first press and that is the same. Is there a way you can tell with the etching?

The jacket graphic design inspiration originally comes from the French Zig-Zag rolling paper packaging.

If you are trying to get this record just to have I found one at my local best buy for 20 $. Thought I'd share as people are complaing about pricing

I seem to have a pretty rare promo cassette that isn't listed here yet (Catalog # DC-72570). I'll add the info shortly.

I got the promo at least a few months before the release, and it seems to be mixed a little different than the final version.

(Quick Review #36)
Listen: #5

I have a whole lot of stuff to catch up on. At least 10 records I've listened to I haven't put up a review for. Now to start with The Chronic. This album is a classic, its The Chronic. While I pesonally prefer Doggystyle this is still a great record. I feel that people who say this started G-Funk didn't listen to Niggaz4Life by NWA, which had a lot of the beginings of this production style by Dre. But that doesn't make this album any worse. It's a great album to just put on and enjoy. Some filler tracks but it doesn't take away from the album too much.

My favorite shit !

Where's the 5 or better yet the 10 rating!! Absolutely one of the best breakthrough hip-hop albums ever! While most crossovers had to have the watered down mainstream hook, Dr. Dre kept it real, hard, and probably wasn't expecting this album to do as well as it did. The skits are absolutely ridiculous funny.Songs are all tight and engineered to perfection with samples from P-Funk Allstars layered with Dr. Dre's talent. The lyrics are solid from delivery to content. You can party and still hear the serious side which is a direct representation of hip hop culture.West Coast represent!!
