    I just received my copy of this 12" single today from ebay. It has all the correct markings in the runout, but this one has the distinction of having a misspelling in the copyright. It is listed as "Copyright Beaty and the Beat Records." Beauty is misspelled as "Beaty" - no 'u'. From what I've seen, this is the second version of the label. Also, I was pleased to hear Run-D.M.C. on this copy.

      I was in the South Bronx the year that this masterpiece was released and I can tell you that this was the summer ANTHEM and it as being blasted every single place that you went, cars,. pizza parlours, Bodegas (grocery stores) you name it.. it was constantly being played on WRKS Kiss and also WBLS and sold like pancakes

        Was this maybe a play on words/tongue and cheek by Word Of Mouth (2) Featuring D.J. Cheese* ‎– King Kut. Which came out probably months earlier?.. I'd love to think so, so I am sticking with that! ;) You know you wanna slice!
