Notes:
The vinyl and CD versions of this album were released with green, red and black frames with the black one being the rarest. Each version depicts different characters in the background, a time capsule of relevant Hip Hop artists at the time.

In his review on allmusic.com John Bush summarizes: "A Tribe Called Quest's Midnight Marauders was commercially successful, artistically adept, and lyrically inventive; the album cemented their status as alternative rap's prime sound merchants, authors of the most original style since the Bomb Squad first exploded on wax."

This version has no barcode on the back cover, still I believe the runouts have to be confirmed since the submitter just duplicated the info from another release leaving baoi info intact.

Classic album with some of the best hip hop songs ever! The pressing is quite quit and not bass heavy, there is also some prominent pops throughout about two songs (I bought this used). Great album to have 👌

sounds pretty good and dynamic for a single LP. Wish they’d reissue this on a double LP. 3 sides would be ideal with Side D being dead wax.

Great sound and nice color just a couple of nit pick things. One, be careful opening the shrink as the sticker that has the number of /500 attached to the shrink. Don't think I've seen that before, but I wish it was embossed on the cover. Or they could've attached the sticker directly to the cover. So if you lose the shrink its just one of 500.

Also I got mine new and it had some very light scratches. I pulled it from the inner sleeve very careful as usual so I believe this happened during packing at the plant. It didn't affect the sound, but weak to buy something new and if I was to resell it, it would have to be mentioned in the condition and it really wasnt my fault! Luckily I plan to keep this forever.

I was hesitant to get this but I'm glad I did. Very minimal surface noise. I'd only purchase another version if it ever comes out on 2xLP which I'm surprised it hasn't yet.
