from Use Me Up promo 12″ single (Jive/Bigtyme, 1992)

Here is the promo 12″ that I mentioned in the last “Use Me Up” single post. There aren’t any new tracks to be had here, but the quality is excellent, so if you have that shitty rip that has been making the file-sharing circuit for who knows how long, throw it out and use this one instead.

Huge props to my homie Stew for taking the time to do this rip in the first place.

TRACKLIST:

  1. LP Version
  2. Extended Mix
  3. Ghetto Jeep Remix
  4. Hip-Hop Remix
  5. LP Instrumental

Choose your flavor: hi-res mp3 or lossless FLAC.

from Something Good 12″ single (Jive/Bigtyme, 1992)

“Something Good” was released in 1992, the first single* from UGK’s (credited here as the “UGK’z”) debut album Too Hard to Swallow. This particular single is only available on 12″ vinyl, though there are CD versions floating around, albeit promo copies with different tracklists and some different mixes.

Pimp C’s remix is probably the highlight of the single. It changes up the beat a bit by adding a much funkier guitar lick and includes different lyrics for Bun’s second verse at the end. Another good thing about this single is that it features the instrumental for the extended mix.

Instrumentals for UGK tracks are few and far between, so when one is available, it’s always appreciated. It’s a shame that there isn’t an official instrumental for Pimp’s remix floating around; his version definitely blows the Bernie Bismark produced album version out of the water.

* Bigtyme did put out a 12″ single in 1989 of “Tell Me Something Good” with “Short Texas” as a b-side. There’s nothing too spectacular about it though, as it just has the street and radio versions of each track, without any special mixes or non-album leftovers.

Props to HaZe and shouts to my peeps at DGB.
