This was one of the best Hip Hop labels back in the late 80's, but the packaging of the records hasn't stood the test of time as well as the music. The stickers on a lot of the records have discoloured badly from the glue they used that's soaked through and the shrinkwrap glues istelf to the sleeves. If you're really fussy ou can find copies with near perfect stickers and if you break the seal you can slide something behind the shrinkwrap to unglue it from the sleeve, but more often than not it glues itself back on after a short while. Despite the packagaing the actual vinyl and the pressings are INCREDIBLE!
