This is the original 1996 release with colored labels. Original hype sticker (on shrink): The Debut Album "...DJ Shadow is the Jimi Hendrix or Jimmy Page of the Sampler" -NME.
There is a subsequent version with black labels as well as one, which also has colored labels, but can be identified by the different mastering information found in the runout grooves.

    Wonderful sound, deep and boomy but perfectly captures the atmosphere of this amazing album,

      Great press and considered a classic Hop Hop and indeed a timeless classic and must have to a basic hip hop collection.

        Still definitely happy to have this...but having listened to the digital for years, I’m still What Does Your Soul Look Like 4? That’s my favorite track off the album 🙁

          "...DJ Shadow is the Jimi Hendrix or Jimmy Page of the Sampler"
          -NME I think the Phil Collins era Genesis of the sampler would have been more accurate.

            Album cover is a pic from inside "Records Records" in Sac, CA. Alas the building is no more last time I visited a few mos back. It was a funky/weird shop for sure.

              Essential, if you don't own this then you are clearly missing out on a gem.
