    Probably the best hip hop album in history; I have the ORIGINAL '86 pressing of this on the same yellow Island/4th and Broadway label...

    I didn't even know this was reissued as a Back to Black release...I know there was a deluxe version with the dollar signs all over it floating around out there (but that seemed like a mere cash grab with the prerequisite additional tracks that never add much) but I don't know how that one sounds...

    I also have a remastered CD version of Paid in Full, but there's something magical about playing this masterpiece on vinyl...

    Yes -- the PLATIMUM Edition....couldn't think of the name of that other release...

    Glad you're enjoying the Back to Black reissue; my original is in absolutely MINT condition with hardly a tick or crackle, honestly...it sounds like a CD (save for the lower overall output). I have this version, with the "Dope Remixes" hype sticker on it:

    looks in great shape mate,i'm afraid i stand guilty of not looking after my rekids and tapes when i was younger :whip:
    i was 15 when this album came out,complete game changer for me,it's one of those desert island disc's i'd have if stranded on one.i still go back to it and i'm 48 now.;)

    Oh, that's not my specific record -- was just showing you what the version I own looks like. :)

    Seems like we're close in age; I turned 45 last May...sucks getting old, huh?

    Another awesome hip hop timepiece...

    Funny; I recently listened to my 12" single of "Sound of Da Police."

    I always thought their previous effort -- By All Means Necessary (and maybe even Criminal Minded) -- was a better album than Blueprint...if only for "My Philosophy" alone.
