First Release Date: June 1992

The debut studio album from Sublime. It was certified Multi Platinum by the RIAA. "40oz. To Freedom" reached #15 on Billboard's Heatseekers and produced the hit "Date Rape".

One version of this album (released on Skunk Records) had 23 tracks. "Get Out!" and "Rawhide" were included on the original Skunk Records release of the album, but were removed from the later Gasoline Alley/MCA re-release due to legal issues with the samples and other copyrighted material used in them, however, in the album booklet, the lyrics for "Get Out!" are still printed. "Rawhide" had originally been appended at the end of "Date Rape." "We're Only Gonna Die for Our Arrogance" and "Let's Go Get Stoned" had also used unlicensed samples on the original release which were later removed from the songs, hence the two different track lengths listed. Later/current versions of this album now have 22 tracks (not including "Get Out!").

I thought this release sounded great... Full sound with very little noise.

I purchased this new somewhere between 1998 and 2000 at Plush Records (no longer in business) in Madison, WI. Came with a nice black and white "Skunk Records" sticker. Wish I would have kept it with the records, put it on my BBQ grill instead (which of course has long been rusted out and disposed of) Probably gets at least 5 or 6 plays per year. No idea what the number pressed were, but I would imagine not many considering vinyl was all but dead around that period of time. The sound quality is fantastic. Do not hesitate to pick up a nice clean copy if you can, you will not be disappointed.

Plays flat on my table. the mixing and all that seems fine. I always feel not great about picture disc plastic sleeves, in regards to the preservation of the media.

Is there a difference between this sleeve and glow in the dark sleeve? Might buy a sealed “glow in the dark” vinyl. But dont want to overpay for the cranberry. Is there a difference between this sleeve and glow in the dark sleeve? No pictures of the back cover here on discogs. Is there a 77 logo like the glow in the dark?

So my copy the tracklisting on the inner sleeves and also on the disc sticker is incorrect. Date Rape is listed as track C6 for both but it is actually D1 on the disc.

Good sound. Bass is deep and full. Maybe overly so, especially on Waiting For My Ruca, but true to the original recording.

When I purchased this album wasn't aware that every track was not included. However still very enjoyable.
