The Fishbone that is best known by the world began with the Truth and Soul album.  Fishbone was definitely at the top of their game for this one.  True ska-funk-rasta-punk at its best.  There are many versions of this one out there.  Just as with In Your Face, the standard U.S. issue has one catalogue number on the sleeve (FC 40891) and another on the labels (C 40891).  I am not sure whether there is a sleeve with the C 40891 number on it.  There is a Canadian version with the same number as the U.S. one, as well as UK and Dutch pressings.  I would be surprised if there were not others.
