I'm not a professional dealer - all records come from my personal collection.

Reliable Descriptions
I usually do the descriptions the way I would want them when digging. Means I try to make sure it's exactly the copy described, concerning:
- Cover (Picture, Sticker, Gate, Shrink,...)
- Pressing (original or not)
- Country (US, UK, GER, ...)
- Catalognumbers
- Damages (like cut-outs for example)

You may wonder why some records are cheap and some are not. That's because I still want to keep some of them, but would let them go for the price they are listed.

Shyheim A/K/A The Rugged Child - On And On

The US copy has been bootlegged in the late 90s to early 2000, if I remember it right. Original copies most likely will have an SRC stamp pressed in the runout grooves.

The first pressing comes in a sleeve with a matt satin surface and the represses with a high gloss surface. The pressing rings of the center labels are different as well: The ones of the first pressing is bigger! (compare the scans)

I guess Jurassic is right. The version from the "What it be like" album is a third version called part 2 and features a whole new sample: "Nautilus" by Boy James

Don't get me wrong, I like you releases.
And to me it's not a matter of fairness, if you have 12"es or not.
I just don't get the sense behind the smaller formats.
And maybe I'll never get it...
Take it easy! ;-)

Whatever, here's the 5" that has... See full review

As you said on most copies. I have heard of intact copies as well.
Is there probably a second (improved) pressing that can be distiguished by the runout grooves?
Probably a Re-1 etching or someting on side a?
Would be interesting to compare the etchings...

Always loved the 89' remix of JVC FORCE's Strong Island by Future Rock. Give it a try!
As far as I know it's exclusive to this release or does a 12" exist?

Please be careful! Around 2002/03 bootlegs of US origin have appeared of the retail 12".

Although some collectors won't be able to accept it: This is a bootleg!

Check the run out groove etchings, compare the catalognumber to regular reprise numbers and the vinyl is much too heavy.

My guess is they are just from different plants, as it was kinda usual in the US and as both variations can bee seen on tan labels as well.

Like (almost?) all 12"es of the Souls on Jive Records this 12" has been bootlegged around the late 90s/early 2000.
Original pressings have the SRC symbol stamped in the runout groove area.

The original pressing is kinda rare as it was a limited promo release, so how to distinguish between original and repress?

Besides the official Traffic repress there is an almost identical counterfeit pressing that came out around 2002/03 which has also been pressed in the USA.
It's easy to identify though:
- Most of the Elektra logos are missing
- The labels have a white... See full review
