Greetings and Blessings, one and all.
This is The Original Roots Warrior DADDY LION CHANDELL,
veteran music and entertainment analyst/historian,
radio personality, and founder of the Roots Dynamic Sound Movement.

Record etymology is one of my specialties, and I take it extremely seriously.
So, if there is something you want to know or need to know
about a certain label or release, please don't hesitate to ask me of it.
If you are in doubt as to whether or not a certain release
is a repress, a reissue, a pre-release, or unofficial -- bring it to me.
I might be able to help you figure it out once and for all!
I look forward to your questions. Come correct, show respect.

Never underestimate the knowledge of a Lion!

Received the 2016 reissue. Supposed to be one gold one green record, got a green and a blue vinyl instead.

Both of those were from the original run, David.
Doesn't look like you got the reissue. :(

My copy is a White & Red promo label. So the White & Red promo labels do exist on this pressing.

They most certainly WOULD (and otherwise SHOULD) exist.
Red is the color Bell would most often use over their white label ... See full review

This tape you're speaking of was issued in 1987.
Island Records WAS founded in 1959... in Jamaica.
However, when they were celebrating their 25th Anniversary,
it was in accordance to their establishment of the UK headquarters,
which happened in 1962. ... See full review

You're right, Karlos.
THIS particular issue is the TRUE original blank label issue.
In fact, it's one of the few and ONLY CBS Records-era release
to be labeled this way, promotional OR commercial.

Aside from the Hootie Mix of "Bonita Applebum" being one of the first Hip-Hop records to sample
The Isley Brothers' 1983 runaway classic "Between The Sheets", it was also, in actuality, a SEQUEL
(or a Part 2 counterpart) to the original version with all ... See full review

More than likely because the shape of the "SS"
bore too close a resemblance to the symbolism of the Nazi regime.

Doesn't anyone have ANY pictures for these releases?
Was Caytronics THAT horrible of a label or something?
This IS the same company that brought us Salsoul, you know.
