Lifers Group / Shadow

Real Deal (Shadow Remix) / Lesson 4

Hollywood BASIC  ED 5567

12", Promo + Flyer


The 1st official Shadow release. About 800 to 1000 were pressed with a fabric like sticker affixed to sleeve.

It was originally issued with the scarce "Stop the Rape of Hip-Hop!" flyer. On a side note, it's interesting to notice that Lesson 4 is exclusively available on this record and was never released ever since.
