     A Tribe Called Quest ‘People’s Instinctive Travels’ 25th Anniversary Mixtape mixed by Chris Read 

    Yesterday marked the 25th anniversary of ATCQ's People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm  - their debut which was considered incredibly groundbreaking, with Tip's eclectic use of jazz, rock and other genre samples. The album also introduced us to the perfect soundscape tunings of legendary engineer Bob Power.

    To mark the momentous occasion, Wax Poetics  (you know, the onlymagazine I still purchase/subscribe to) and sample database Whosampled  put together a tribute mix, featuring tracks from the album interspersed with samples used in the creation.

    Diggers and historians won't wanna miss this one! For the entire tracklist, head here.

    This album doesn't get the praise it deserves.
    Low End & Midnight are masterpieces, but that shouldn't diminish the greatness that is People's Instinctive.

    Haven't listened yet.

    Mentioned in another Tribe (related?) thread how much I liked this album.

    Looking forward to hearing the samples. Can only assume this is on there.

    LOVE this joint which is basically why I love the joint that heavily sampled it on this album....

    It's the greatest 3 album stretch in Hip-Hop history.

    This.

    Their performance on Fallon last night was pretty strong too. Fingers crossed we might get some new music from them since they're apparently getting along at the moment.

    Peoples Instinctive...45 Boxset (8 X 7 Inch Singles)
    A Tribe Called Quest
    A TRIBE CALLED QUEST PARTNERS WITH GET ON DOWN TO RELEASE A LIMITED-EDITION, 25TH ANNIVERSARY “45s BOX” REISSUE [ON EIGHT 7-INCHES] OF THE GROUP’S 1990 DEBUT, “PEOPLES’ INSTINCTIVE TRAVELS AND THE PATHS OF RHYTHM”

    Ships early December

    25th Anniversary deluxe “45s Box” was created in collaboration with the group and is a vinyl companion piece to Tribe’s Anniversary celebration.

    Set contains:

    • 1,000 HAND-NUMBERED VINYL SETS
    • EIGHT BLACK VINYL “SMALL HOLE” 45s WITH PICTURE SLEEVES
    • 45s ARE HOUSED IN A DELUXE, FABRIC-WRAPPED CARRYING CASE, WITH 360-DEGREE ORIGINAL ALBUM ART
    • INCLUDES ONE BONUS SONG, “IF THE PAPES COME (REMIX),” AS WELL AS THREE TRACKS ONLY INCLUDED ON ORIGINAL CD AND CASSETTE PRESSINGS (NOT LP)
    • 14” x 21” POSTER FEATURING ORIGINAL ALBUM ARTWORK
    • AUDIO USED FOR THIS EDITION IS NEWLY REMASTERED BY BOB POWER (ORIGINAL ALBUM ENGINEER AND MIXER) AND A TRIBE CALLED QUEST

    2015 marks a very important milestone for A Tribe Called Quest, one of hip-hop’s greatest and most influential groups. 25 years ago, deep in the creative vortex of hip-hop’s Golden Age, Q-Tip, Phife, Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Jarobi released their debut: Peoples’ Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm.

    Songs on this reissue literally run the gamut, from early singles (the hits “I Left My Wallet In El Segundo” and “Can I Kick It?”) to flirty and infectious (“Bonita Appelbum”), in addition to mixing in non-preachy social messages, as on “Push It Along” (about staying positive in a chaotic world) and “Pubic Enemy” (about STDs and the importance of safe sex). Deeper album cuts like “Luck Of Lucien” and “Youthful Expression” show wisdom beyond their years, going beyond brags to explore personal relationships and days in their own lives. With soul- and jazz-inflected, expertly constructed beats to propel their words and thoughts, it was an unmistakably powerful combination.

    Lyrically Q-Tip and Phife played off each other perfectly, which is not surprising considering that they had been friends since elementary school. Ali Shaheed masterfully manned the decks, while adding crucial audio seasoning to production. And Jarobi, who would later become a professional chef, was the secret ingredient early-on, pushing the group along in the studio and adding energy to their early live shows.

    Presented in this very special “45s Box” edition, the 16 sides here – with a sequence set in collaboration with the group – are not in exact order of the original album sequence. “Luck Of Lucien,” for instance, has been re-created as a two part suite in this edition. And “Footprints” moves from earlier-on, to the final side.

    Additionally, there is one rare bonus song, “If The Papes Come,” which was the B-Side to the “Can I Kick It?” single. Also, three songs here – “Pubic Enemy”; “Go Ahead In The Rain”; and “Description Of A Fool” – were only included on CD and Cassette pressings of the original album, not the original LP. All songs in this new pressing have been remastered by legendary engineer Bob Power, who engineered and/or mixed all five of the group’s albums, in addition to many other hitmakers of the era.
