This is a MONO pressing off the original analog tapes by Kevin himself, it sounds perfect! Not just the actual music fidelity but also the vinyl itself is extremely quiet.

You Owe Us side is pressed very low, to the point even if you max out the phono gain on your mixer its not loud enough! Never could play this vinyl in the clubs without heavy feedback due to having to crank the gains

Correct about the pressing but not the jacket. My orig copy looks more like the repress but matt jacket and it is 100% og. Maybe printed in Canada vs USA for the cover? I'm pretty sure Polygram did that... one pressing plant but the litho for canada ... See full review

This cover still doesn't match my original pressing. Labels look identical, including the pressing ring hitting the H in METHOD in the exact same spot. My labels are pretty worn and typical greying of '90s Def Jam labels. My cover however DOES NOT two ... See full review

Two comments;
1. I wouldn't categorize this as HipHop. I've always put it in with my R&B crates.
2. The (VOCAL) version has a pretty long break at the beginning but ya I get it if yo bought this version thinking you were getting an actual instrumental. ... See full review

The original Jamaican 45 is labelled as Cutty Ranks "Love Mi Hafi Get". It was quite common back then for a DJ to voice over a prereleased song and be solely credited as the artist.

My copy has the wrong label on it (PH-57-B: Cutty Ranks - Circle Me Country; with the title blacked out) and the runout has;
PH-83-A. A1 is "Love Me Have To Get"... the audio is not very good, the highs are dark sounding in spots. Maybe the first master ... See full review

The 'Crib Mix' is a great Hip-House era track. All about the B Side on this one... ;)
posted a comment on Black Stalin - The Bright Side. 10 months ago
Two HUGE Soca classics, "Move" and "Ah Feel To Party" and essentially, two extended versions, plus 2 filler tracks. Hard to rate this album... i mean those two songs are 5 star for sure but "Revolution Time" and "Look On The Bright Side" are just OK.

Absolutely perfect vinyl transfer. That said, being a live orchestral recording of hip hop, you're not gonna get that 808 bass or that studio sound but its a very well made record.

I wouldn't say that the 2017 US reissue is a "standard" weight vinyl. Its definitely heavyweight. Not sure if its 180g but way thicker than a '90s pressing.

One of the best packaged products I have seen released EVER! Great job on this one. Heavyweight 2xLP vinyl, heavy weight printed inner sleeves, large poster, booklet, Gatefold cover with gold foil printing. Just absolutely beautiful!

I don't think the Slip 'N Slide Promo CD with 'Get Crunked Up' would've been released in 2000. I know for sure the promo vinyl didn't get out until summer of 2001. I suspect 2000 is when 'Get Fucked Up' was first published.

This was the promo version I got back in '99. Excellent quality pressing, very clean and proper EQ sound. Great low end. No surface noise.
posted a comment on Gang Starr - All 4 Tha Ca$h / The ? Remainz. about 1 year ago
This is a poor pressing. Looks like the type of unvirgin vinyl you see on late '90s Jamaican pressings. Surface noise pressed into vinyl (M- copy sounds VG at best).
posted a comment on Gang Starr - The Militia. about 1 year ago
Although the label does not state PROMO anywhere, this is the vinyl that was sent out for promotion and per the runout, the catalog number is SPRO-10014, which would be a promo number (SPRO)

Very impressed with the vinyl release! Sounds perfect, looks perfect, love the gold foil lettering, insert, poly lined sleeve, etc.
This is what albums should all be made like! Great pressing by Atlantic/Warner Bros.

Its exactly the same as the video but without the sound FX at the very beginning. The version I originally got from my record pool has a longer intro and fades out at the end instead of the beat dropping like that. They are all the same speed... 69BPM.

Maybe its your turntables!? The digital version that i got from my record pool comes up as 69BPM. I just ripped the vinyl, using my Technics SL-1200GLD at 45rpm and its also coming up at 69BPM too.

It is a different mix/arrangement that the version i ... See full review
