Lab exclusivo red vinyl! The Roots' unknown first album that was recorded in Europe and released independently in '93 before they signed with MCA. Good news for you: this is quite possibly their best LP. It's more raw than Do You Want More??!!, with a playful sound, that at points, focuses more on the live-band aspect of emcee/band interaction. Double LP of songs that should have easily been banging major label singles... but yes, some things are best left unspoiled. "Grits" with that organ riff is one of nicest songs we've heard in a minute. Also includes "The Longest Posse Cut in History" (12 minutes), live tracks, and some live-style band out-takes. Ever wonder why Do You Want More started out with song #18? Red 2LP edition available exclusively from Turntable Lab, recommended.
