De La Soul • De La Mix tape - not sure if this is a legit release (2LPs in plain black sleeve with sticker in top left corner), but it’s great to have on vinyl!

Reissue of the super rare “Clear Lake Auditorium” EP on black vinyl (the orig was pressed on clear wax). Not sure if this is a legit release, but it’s super cool to have!
