Large Professor: Listen (Blast Off) (Geffen, 1996, 12″)
Junket’s Robbie Ettelson has part of the story behind what the hell happened to Large Pro’s solo LP but all I know is that folks were hype in ’96 at the idea that LP was about to drop The LP. As far as teaser 12″s go, this 3-song single was both enough to whet our appetite and then, as it turns out, hold us over for a while until we realized “uh oh, something went wrong.” Surprised this was left off the final LP but c’est la vie.
Love the “Blind Alley” flip on “Listen,” by the way.
