The Complete Collection 1987-92 box

US-only import • 8LPs • 2 remix CDs • 36-page 12x12 booklet

This superbe vinyl box set was never made available in Europe and SDE has a very limited quantity of stock, shipping from the UK.

The Complete Collection 1987-1992 incorporates 2-LP vinyl editions of each of Eric B. & Rakim's four original albums — 1987's Paid In Full, 1988's Follow the Leader, 1990's Let the Rhythm Hit 'Em and 1992's Don't Sweat the Technique.

The two bonus CDs of classic remixes, none of which have ever appeared on an album, and only a handful of which have previously been available digitally

All four LPs and both CDs are housed in a ridged slipcase that also boasts a 36-page book (with 29 vintage photos spanning the group's career together, as well as liner notes from writers Tom Terrelland Brian Coleman).
