This is 1 of 2 existing acetates from 1988. The other acetate was given
to Borris from Power 106 FM in Los Angeles. He didn't show must interest
in it and I remember not wanting to give it to him. I had no choice and
gave it to him. The good thing was that he did include it in some weekend mixes
for a while. This plate may be sitting in some 2nd hand record store unlabeled
for all I know......
This is a test pressing of the first attempt. The volume on this record is low,
but the bass is very strong. This version was never released. About 4 of these
are out there some where. It actually sounds different since the version we
released was tweaked by Richard at the mastering house. We only have this single
copy. As of August 2004, I have found out that a second copy exists in the hands of
our old DJ Joe Negrete (local). He said his copy is not for sale.
This is a test pressing of the second attempt. The volume on this record was
corrected but it has less bass that the previous test pressing. This version was released on Dunk Yer Funk.
About 3 of these are out there some where.
This is 1 of 2 sealed copies we have. Never opened, never played. The price tag is
still on it. We purchased this copy in Pico Rivera, CA in 1988. We
just wanted to walk into the store and buy a copy as a memoir. For verification,
your copy should have Richard's signature on the inner grooves on both sides.
The signature should be IDENTICAL to the one on the new EBBOY-1001 record. He
has signed the same way for over 25 years, no bigger, no smaller, no jerky lines.
