A Tribe Called Quest - Revised Quest For The Seasoned Traveller



Now, I know I may have smoked a bit of herb in the early 1990's but I do not remember the name being spelled that way. Could have sworn it was 'Qwest', but I am digressing. It was easy to tell these boys were going places after I heard that green-vinyl debut single for "I Left My Wallet In El Segundo", way back in....Fall/Winter of 1989. Just smooth beats and quality production cobined with highly skilled rhymes. It's a shame that record sales rarely follow talent, for these fellas deserved a lot more shine than they saw. Either way, this is a little collection of b-sides and 12" remixes that will serve to remind us how great they were. Here's a tidbit from the interwebs -

"A dope collection of 12" and various remixes of Tribe Called Quest classics -- collected on this nice compilation -- which for a while seemed as tough to get a hold of as the original vinyl singles! What makes this set special is the that it features the really good remixes of the time, plus a UK house mix or two. Includes "Jazz (We Got) (re-recording)" - that appeared on the US 12-inch, "Butter (hip hop mix) ", "Scenario (young nation's mix)" - with Leaders of the New School and remixed by Young Disciples, "If The Papes Come (remix)" - previously available on 12" only, "Can I Kick It (extended boilerhouse mix)", "Check The Rhyme (mr. Muhammad's mix" - from the US single, "Pubic Enemy (saturday night virus discomix)", "Description Of A Fool (talkie)", "I Left My Wallet In El Segundo (vampire mix)", "Bonita Applebum (12" why? edit)", "Bonita Applebum (hootie mix)" - the one with the dope "Between The Sheets" sample"
