Hi there people..I have a question about this 12", I hope some of the U.S. RCG members can help me?
This track was famous for the NIKE commercial back in 2000/2001...Afrika Bambaataa basicly made the beat of this track using samples of people playing Basketball in a gym.
I loved the track from the very first time I saw the commercial, but it was nearly impossible to find this on vinyl. I did find 2 Promo CD's with the commercial and music on it..but offcourse I wanted it on vinyl real bad.
Finally after 8 or 9 years I find THIS copy...and noticed it was a French pressing?
It looks official, but not sure about it...
Could this ONLY be pressed in France (Europe) or is there a U.S. copy of this?
I would love a U.S. copy, and will continue searching if someone can tell me if it actually was pressed at one time in the U.S.
Thnx for ANY help or info!!

Bokkie

We did a story on these guys a few months ago in Pro Sound News ("See Spot Run", April 2012 issue, Page 29):

While that article implies that you found a bootleg, in fact, they did press a 12" as a second story we did indicates:

Drop 'em an email - they could probably point you in the right direction of where to find one, or God forbid, they might have a few left.
