    Product Details


    It's safe to say that hip-hop has never seen an album like Ol' Dirty Bastard's 1995 solo debut Return to the 36 Chambers. The brief glimpses of ODB's unhinged genius provided by Wu-Tang Clan's landmark Enter the Wu-Tang album two years earlier were begging to be expanded on to a larger canvas, and, with RZA guiding production, the album promised to give Dirty the creative license to make one of the most bizarre, entertaining and original LPs in hip-hop history. With his raspy, drunken flow and dark sense of humor, Dirty fearlessly attacks from all angles, throwing himself fearlessly into punchy rhyme attacks ("Damage," with GZA), drugged-out party jams (the monster singles "Brooklyn Zoo" and "Shimmy Shimmy Ya") and bizarre, grimly hilarious fantasies of sex and violence ("Don't U Know" and the R&B-tinged "Sweet Sugar Pie"). Backed by RZA's appropriately gritty, dissonant beats and appearances from the Clan, Return became an instant hit, selling over 1 million copies and earning a Grammy Award nomination for Best Rap Album in 1996. The album stands as a high water mark in the Wu-Tang Clan's collective creative output and was selected as one of the Best 100 Rap Albums by The Source magazine in 1998. In honoring the legacy of one of hip-hop's most innovative releases, Get On Down is proud to present this incredible and unique special edition of Ol' Dirty Bastard's Return to the 36 Chambers as a double LP which contains the complete original album, remastered for optimal sound quality.

    Comment: 4 stars for the vinyl version. Would be less being the sound quality on the vinyl is far behind the original issue. But the over-sized welfare card makes up for it. If you coping for collector stand point get it. If you coping cause you want to play it and listen to it, find yourself a good original. You'll be happy you did.

    Comment: A+ for 99% of this re-issue. nice packaging, good mastering, nicely chosen bonus tracks. However, the three star rating is due to them including a version of the Studio Ton Remix without E-40 & MC Eiht. They were on the original and are listed in the liner notes of this but really they just put the instrumental. Minor, but actually the reason I was buying the CD. Otherwise, well worth it. Just a bit disappointed.

    Comment: Goddamn, this is how a reissue of a classic should be done! Hardly ever do I buy a CD, but this was a must purchase. Well worth $25 if you're a Wu collector like me. I'm gonna see if this welfare card will get me on the bus for free tomorrow :P
