Labyrinth Lord was probably the first OSR ruleset that I stumbled across when I found the OSR. Well, first after Castles & Crusades, and certainly the first ruleset that had a free PDF available for it.
Now, I cut my teeth on AD&D, unlike much of my generation which was introduced to RPGs via the Basic set. Labyrinth Lord is a rewrite of Basic/Expert, so the aping of the original B/X fonts doesn't quite make me nostalgic, but I do appreciate the thought.
Advanced Labyrinth Lord takes the core LL book and seamlessly combines it with the Advanced Edition Companion into one book.

Finally the basic and advanced game rules are in one volume!
This book combines the material originally presented in the Labyrinth Lord core rules and in the Advanced Edition Companion. Play advanced and basic characters in the same group, or choose to play one or the other.
Enter a world filled with labyrinths, magic, and monsters! Choose a basic race-class, advanced class, or even multiclass to combine the two! All of the basic and advanced options are within reach.

It is easy to use basic and advanced game adventures from other publishers with these rules.
