De La Soul – 3 Feet High & Rising Era Rarities (1988-1990)

There have been countless De La Soul non-album track compilations put together over the years, so we’re not exactly breaking new ground, but if you’re like me, then you enjoy having everything organized in one place. Over the course of the next week or two, I’m going to list four separate installments of De La Soul rarities:

3 Feet High & Rising Era (1988-1990)
De La Soul Is Dead Era (1991-1992)
Buhloone Mindstate Era (1993-1994)
Stakes Is High Era (1996-1998)

First up, we got a two volume set of 3 Feet High & Rising era non-album tracks. I attempted to create an alternate version of the officially released album on volume 1, with volume 2 containing all of the leftovers. There are quite a few ill-advised European remixes in circulation, but you won’t find any of ’em here. Enjoy.

    There's only one word to describe this – gunsmoke. I'm looking forward to the collections for the forthcoming De La LP's. To celebrate here's a photo of me wearing my De La shirt on my 14th birthday: http://tinyurl.com/murbyf

  4. toiletries says:

    Yeah, it's going off. I don;'t know what we're listening to but my aunt got me People's Instinctive Travels for my birthday that year so it might be that.

    I've got a Me, Myself and I remix that's not on here from a german 12" with a blue cover (it has Jacko's Don't Stop Til You Get Enough's intro as the main loop). I can hook you up with that if you like?

  5. Roy Johnson says:

    We're definitely interested, man. There's a shitload of European remixes listed on discogs, many of which are pretty lousy, but I ain't never heard the "Me Myself And I" remix w/ the Jacko loop.

  6. Roy Johnson says:

    By the way, before I forget, here is Queen Latifah's "Mama Gave Birth To The Soul Children" VLS, courtesy of the homie dirt dog. It contains three different mixes.


  7. toiletries says:

    Here's the Me Myself remix I mentioned above with the Big Mike sample:


    It's not brilliant but you don't see it around as much as the others. Also, here's a breaks tape I did last month. Give it a listen, you might enjoy it.
