Rare Shadow

I recently came across a DJ Shadow compilation of some of his work with the (now-defunct?) record label Mo' Wax. The seventeen tracks on the Mo Wax DJ shadow 12" compilation were previously tough to find, and it features all his finest moments from the early to mid-'90s when he was a founding member Mo' Wax. If you're a fan of DJ Shadow, you need to get your hands on this stuff.

Here's a little info on Mo' Wax via Wiki:
Mo' Wax is a UK-based record label owned by James Lavelle, who founded it in the early 1990s. The label is responsible for bringing attention to the graffiti artist Futura 2000 by using his artwork on many of its releases in the early to mid 1990s. The Mo' Wax imprint became a collectors favourite. Not because of the limited runs of each release, but because the artwork was just as vital to each release as the music it contained and represented. The original Mo' Wax logo as used on the very early releases was designed by UK graphic designer Swifty, but the label excelled their reputation by featuring artwork contributions from Futura, 3D (from Massive Attack) and Req 1. Ben Drury was the main designer responsible for the art direction and design of the label.

that compilation is a bootleg. Not athorized by Shadow or Mo'wax.

In fact, there's even a track on it that has nothing to do with DJ Shadow.

That said; please download it in stead of buying.

Don't support the bootleggers
