Spice is the debut album by British girl group the Spice Girls, released in September 1996 by Virgin Records. The album was recorded at Olympic Studios in Barnes, London between 1995 and 1996, by producers Matt Rowe and Richard Stannard, and the production duo Absolute. The album is a pop record with an inclusion of styles such as dance, R&B and hip hop. It is considered to be the record that brought teen pop back, opening the doors for a wave of teen pop artists. Conceptually, the album centered on the idea of Girl Power, and during that time was compared to Beatlemania.

Spice was a huge worldwide commercial success. The album peaked at number one in more than 17 countries across the world, and was certified Multi-Platinum in 27 countries, Platinum in 14 countries and Gold in 3 countries, including a 10 times Platinum in the UK and Canada by the British Phonographic Industry and the Canadian Recording Industry Association, 8 times Platinum in Europe by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry, and 7 times Platinum in the US by Recording Industry Association of America. It became the world's top-selling album of 1997 selling 19 million copies in over a year. In total the album sold 23 million copies worldwide, becoming the biggest-selling album in music history by a girl group and one of the most successful albums of all time.

Five singles were released from the album. The first single, "Wannabe", became a worldwide success went to number one in 35 countries, one of the best-selling singles of all time and selling over six million copies worldwide. The next two singles, "Say You'll Be There" and "2 Become 1", reached number one in 53 countries. "Who Do You Think You Are" was released as the official Comic Relief single in the UK as a double A-side with "Mama" and both songs reached the top 20 in charts across Europe, Australia and New Zealand. In the band's native UK, all four singles went to number one on the UK singles chart and, in the Billboard Hot 100, the album produced three top five singles.

Really good pressing, far better than the Urban Outfitters one. No pops, no clicks at all and really silent pressing. Great bass and great dynamic. Inner sleeve is very solid and strong compared to the sheet of paper from Urban Outfitters version which is pretty lame. Go for this version !

Does every copy suffer from a quiet, high-pitched squeal in the left channel between A1 and A2? Having googled things a bit I think it might be a mastering error called "chip squeal" that for whatever reason wasn't picked up by the test pressing but I don't think it's a particularly common problem because in the couple of thousand records I've owned or still own I've never heard it anywhere else. I bought this LP aged eight in 1996 (because I had inherited a record player from my grandfather and vinyl was about £3 cheaper than CDs in those days), and was really, really confused by this thing that obviously wasn't part of either song and wouldn't go away. Though on the whole the album sounds alright (20 years and several turntable upgrades later) I don't think these were ever the best pressings because I remember there were LOADS of skips on side A when I first got it. These gradually cleared up because I basically wore out the record but the next album had the same problem on both sides! (Obviously, while every girl at my school had this album, I never met any boys who would admit to liking it, a fact whose significance only became clear about five years later.)

Yeah poor packaging from urban outfitters in an oversized box with a scrunched up piece of paper caused damage to inner sleeve on 2 sides and minor damage to cover corner aswell. Not impressed

I bought my copy today at UO in Chicago, State St. for $19 plus tax. Copies are still sold at Urban Outfitters website for the same price, plus tax and S+H.

Received my copy from Urban Outfitters today. They are not packing these well. It arrived in a large box with only a crumpled piece of paper as "packing." LP allowed to slide all around the box. Miraculously, split inner sleeve seams are the only serious damage, with minor outer spine split thru the title. Sound quality is average. I'm happy to support the vinyl resurgence though.
