Companies, etc.



First 3000 copies pressed have a red label. There are also some copies with a "Roulette Records" label, only the label says "Sugarhill" in place of "Roulette". They came out after the red labels, and are a little more common. The third (and most common) pressing has the standard Sugar Hill label.
