The first official release from the legendary Detroit collective Slum Village (Baatin, T3, Jay Dee) returns with an official vinyl re-issue. While Fantastic Vol.
1 brings the now beloved raw and rugged lyricism of the 1990's, it is the first taste of the now heralded production of Jay Dee that makes Fantastic Vol. 1 a must have on wax.
What started as a local phenomenon has blossomed into a worldwide classic thanks to the signature style and rhyme of James Yancey. As Questlove said, "The success that was deserved eluded the original lineup for Slum Village...those who were 10 years tardy to the party can find their invite within the selections of this disk".
In addition to the entire album on two pieces of vinyl, the 2011 version of Fantastic Vol 1. includes a bonus 7" featuring the previously unreleased "Keep It On (Instrumental) and "Bounce Wit a N*gga".
