Jurassic 5 is the debut album by Jurassic 5. The material from the Jurassic 5 EP plus a few additional tracks were repackaged as an album and released by Pan Records as Jurassic 5 in 1998.

Background[edit]

The correct title is simply Jurassic 5, although in some listings it is referred to wrongly as the Jurassic 5 LP, as "LP" confusingly appears on the album sleeve (including the CD version) artwork, which was used to distinguish it from the Jurassic 5 EP. The Jurassic 5 logos on both the album and the EP were designed by Chali 2na. The following year, Jurassic 5 were picked up by a major label, Interscope Records. Their first release on Interscope was the re-issue of the Jurassic 5 EP in an 8 track version in 1999. This had the same listing as the original EP, excluding the final track "Blacktop Beat". Thereafter, they released their major label debut album, Quality Control, in June 2000.
