    Useful UK/Euro pressings

    I know generally the thing is to go for the US OG versions but there's some nice UK/Euro bits out there for exclusive tracks, loud pressings of LP cuts etc and tend to be reasonably priced.

    the god awful 'Nastradamus' single has Represent and the Large Pro remix of It Aint Hard To Tell on the 12"

    there's also the 2nd 12" with Halftime and One Love on the flip

    Nas - Get Down EP with Nas Is Like, NY State Of Mind and No Ideas Original
    https://www.discogs.com/Nas-Get-Down-EP/release/318227

    A Tribe Called Quest EP from '94 with We Can Get Down, Clap Yo Hands, Verses From The Abstract and best of all Footprints
    https://www.discogs.com/A-Tribe-Call.../release/95061

    A Tribe Called Quest - The Jam EP
    https://www.discogs.com/A-Tribe-Call...P/master/45999

    Gang Starr - Code To The Street EP with the Kenny Dope remix and Mass Appeal
    https://www.discogs.com/Gangstarr-Co...release/513660

    definitely handy in terms of saving space in the box if you were DJing and saving money if you couldn't afford (or find) the import. Anything else of note out there? There's some good LP samplers but not sure if they were a thing in the US too?

    Good idea for a thread, I bet there are loads of good ones that we overlook.


    think this sort of fits into this tread:

    Gang Starr and Dream Warriors dope colabo that I believe is UK (well Europe) as far as I can tell:

    You also get Brooklyn's Finest, Feelin It and the Fools Paradise remix of Cant Knock The Hustle

    JVC Force-Strong Island Blue Mix German Pressing

    Isn't the EU-Pressing of OC-Jewelz superior to the US version?! At least my US og pressing is really bad!

    Tuff Crew – My Part Of Town (Dutch remix)

    https://www.discogs.com/Tuff-Crew-My...release/188641

    I really like this one, which otherwise is only available on a US Test Press.

    This used to go for silly money (30 Euro) 5-10 years ago, but is now available for a decent price again - so worth looking out for.

    PS the Lord Finesse 12” on Bellaphon, mentioned by record-sniffer is a great shout; I am sure there are a few other alternate US pressings on that label that are worth grabbing, but the titles escape me right now....
