There will be the long awaited 3LP official reissue coming in December "L'école Du Micro D'argent (Réédition 2015)" by Warner.
It'll have the original cover art.

Do not buy this. It's NOT pressed accurate centrical, it's more an elipse.. very very bad for the needle.

The quality is actually pretty decent - unlike the discogs prices for the original 3lp. So better blame those sellers or IAM. My best regards to the bootleggers who ended my decade-long chase.

I've bought a copy because i wanted it since 10 years so i don't care if it's a pirate copy or anything else but i agree that the artwork sucks (and the lack of insert too) :-)
And you can see on the "macaron" (sorry i don't know the english word for this) written in really small :
"....Tous les droits sont réservés à des fins promotionnelles.NOT FOR SALE...."

I own the CD and the Book edition. For sure it sounds excellent, but as a vinyl collector since 20 years it´s not comparable with a vinyl. I can only hope that there comes an official re-release..

To all those who think they own this release so they own the LP album of IAM - L'Ecole Du Micro D'Argent...well...clearly, you don't !!
What you own by buying this release, is a poor PIRATE reissue, probably remasterized from a CD source, and cheaply pressed slightly off-center in eastern europe (hence the 20€ price..) with the WORST artwork cover ever imitated !!!
The cover is not a joke, that doesn't made me laugh, it's really scary..but you all made me laugh...

Shame on you all sellers who distribute this piracy, and resellers who try to steal people by speculating on stolen properties at x2, x3, or x4 of the release price..!
Shame on you all foolish buyers who bought, and will buy this junk release...just because vinyl is the new hype, you want to follow fashion..it's a really cultured behaviour..you only buy the next carrot in front of your eyes...

To all those who says that they can't afford to buy an original copy, or that the sound quality of this release is excellent...well, I still have a 18 years old Original CD which sounds excellent, and there are many copies you can buy for 10€ !!

I just hope that this wack pirate junk release will inspire the label which own the rights (not IAM, it was already told in interview..) and they will release an official and beautifull reissue for the 20 years anniversary of which everyone consider as THE fundamental album of French Rap (that we all know by heart, due to the thousands of listening which inspired us, growing up as a youth...).

So all copies of this release can end where they belong...(in the garbage) .

If this edition can inspire label or/& group to do an Official Anniversary Edition, it's done.

The sound is okay on this release, however, my copy arrived with a pressing error: some sides aren't centered properly, and you can sometimes hear some sound parasites at the end. Anyway, it's a very good LP, but the official reissue is coming...

I think for a bootleg it´s ok. Not to compare with the original for sure. No Gatefold Cover etc. But I can live with that. Better than paying 300-500 Euro for a used original, that´s much too high for me.
