I just visited the Fat Beats online store and saw this on the frontpage. The distributor is listed as Geffen, and the site describes it as:
“Never heard before, heat from Large Professor. This album was shelved in 1993 and includes unreleased and rare joints.”
It seems to be a repackaging of the version of The LP that was packaged with preorders of 1st Class, with a slightly altered track listing that adds the song “Have Fun”.
Track listing on this version is listed below:
2 One Plus One
5 For My People
7 Get Off The Bullshit
8 Funky 2 Listen 2
9 Dancing Girl
10 Have Fun
12 The Mad Scientist
It’s missing some of the tracks that have been circulating on bootleg pressings of the record, but I do like the cover more than the Dune inspired original, pictured below next to the cover that inspired it.
Is this legit? Could someone ask the Mad Scientist for me? If you’re interested, take a look at the FatBeats listing and tell me what you think.
While you’re at it, visit Robbie’s spot to pick up a few of the tracks omitted from the release
