    I'd like to say that I'm proud of you all for the fact that no one has mentioned Slick Rick as a "UK Rapper"

    Ok so i bought the cd & it was well worth it! The 7 new tracks are UK's Finest, You Blow My Mind, I Will Never Leave You, Ain't No Friend, I Will Never Leave You (Inst), Think About It & The Power. UK's Finest is HARD, one of the best merlin tracks i've heard & up there with Born Free, Drop The Pressure & Bust Da Move. The other new tracks are unfortunately drivel. I relistened to the original uk version & would say there are 6 decent tracks on it so you could actually make a decent 10 track version with UK's Finest & the 3 aforementioned tracks.

    Join The Dots / Ital Visions got a US release too, guessing because of the Chali 2na feature. The Canadian Witness 12" was the only way to get the inst for a long time but bizarrely if discogs is to be believed its on this 10th Anniversary 12" but no OG vocal version!

    Did he chart in the States?
