Doug E. Fresh – The Original Human Beat Box

Label: Vintertainment Records
Released: 1984
Format: 12″
Country of Origin: US
Style: Electro

This was the second release for Doug E. Fresh (Spelt Dougy Fresh on the label) and was produced by label owner, Vincent Davis.

There are a few label variations for this release, all of which have the same track listing but are easily identified by the label address around the bottom.

The original promo pressing has the address ‘2067 Broadway, NY’ but the official release has ‘260 West 325th Street, NY’. This is the same as an unofficial 1990’s pressing which is you can distinguish from the original as it has no Herbie etching in the dead wax/runout groove. There is also what appears to be an official reissue which has the address ‘PO Box 1002, Bronx, NY’.

This track also appeared on the UK release of ‘Just Having Fun’ and featured the additional Mastermind mix of both tracks.
