I love the original Fantastic Vol. 1. It captures a time in hip hop when good music was timeless and not just current. However, for the record, I own the first, out of print, version of this release and it only has 10 tracks. This is the version I know. However, the re-release advertised here has all the original tracks plus 14 additional tracks. In case you didn't know, Slum Village makes really vibey music, not very conscious, intelligent, or lyrically potent. But Jay Dee really makes it all sound sooo perfect on production, that it sounds like it was meant to be just as it is. Too much fancy lyricism would have taken away from the chill vibe of this music. If you like jay dee production, or hip hop in that lovely late 90's period, get this CD. P.S. take my advice, Fantastic Vol. 2 is the only other Slum Village release worth anything at all. After that, it was all B.S.,brain dead, bling bling, sellout rap.
