    I have a first release of this an on the b side it has the slamming vinyl logo in green and on the other there is no writing it has a futuristic picture of a satellite in a space town and at the bottom what looks like a pyramid?
    My copy also also has the etching that says Pepsi your name is on the record on the picture side
    picture posted waiting for approval
    Does anyone else have this version???

      I’m sure you all know this already but Don’t Need Your Love, the MC Conrad sample is from Dreamscape 4, it’s found on LTJ Bukem’s set before the first track starts playing

        In my top 500 tunes of all time, across all genres in there with Brian Wilson and the beatles. Just incredible, they nailed it 11/10

        I will pay very silly money for a mint copy of the first pressing send me a msg

          The original release also had a black/yellow version. I bought mine in around 1995 from Troublesome Records in Kingston, this was before the repress.

            There are 2 very similar pressings of this. One pressing has 'In Effect' on the logo side, whereas the other has 'Don't Need Your Love' on the logo side.

            On the copies that have 'Don't Need Your Love' on the logo side, the message "Pepsi. Your name is on the record!!" has been scratched out. I would guess that this was a slightly later run.

              A lot of the ragga samples on Don't Need Your Love are from Stone love 92 tape. Here around the 20 min mark.

                In Effect is one of those tunes that encompasses the whole scene at that moment in time. It's stupendously good imo!

                      In Effect was an awesome tune. I can remember DJ SY playing it in his sets and scratching like a maniac... There's plenty of repress copies of this about.
