Product Details

Summary

The cultural phenomenon that is the Wu-Tang cannot accurately be described without referencing one of the pillars in the Clan's discography; Chef Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx remains firmly planted as one of the defining triumphs in their artistic legacy. The oft referred "Purple Tape", has been cited and debated by many as the greatest Wu-Tang solo project to date and a remains a bullet point in any discussion involving the greatest "Cocaine Rap" or "Street Hop" albums of all time.

Raekwon's narrative, plays out like a movie script from the violent, drug fueled, underbelly of New York City's criminal landscape, intricately woven over instrumentals from the legendary mastermind behind the Wu-Tang Clan, The RZA. Even the album's main feature "Tony Starks aka Ghostface Killer", referred to as such rather described as a "guest star" appearing on 12 of the albums 18 tracks. It should be noted that while the Only Built 4 Cuban Linx did produce a string of successful singles, such as "Ice Cream", "Incarcerated Scarfaces", and "Criminology", like all classic cinema, the album was intentionally engineered to be appreciated in one sitting, played from beginning to end.

In continuing with it's proud tradition of honoring historically significant hip hop albums, Get On Down is honored to present Raekwon's "Only Built 4 Cuban Linx" for the first time ever on double translucent purple vinyl housed in a high density resealable poly bag. This edition features for the first time ever on vinyl, the formerly CD only bonus track, "North Star (Jewels)". And if that wasn't enough, the entire album also features completely enhanced and painstakingly remastered audio. This is the definitive must-own vinyl edition of Raekwon's masterpiece.

Comment: Big up to Get on Down for their work on the packaging and most of all for the inclusion of "North Star" - the original vinyl release always felt incomplete without that track, which is what convinced me to pay $30 bucks for a re-issue of an album I already own. Unfortunately, I have to agree with Phuc Yew, that the sound is a huge disappointment. The first thing you hear on side D before Spot Rusherz begins is the final note of Wisdom Body, which is how the songs were segued on the CD release, but not on the original vinyl release. Which really makes you wonder what source was used for this remaster. Whatever it was, it really makes you wonder how people puting so much effort into a re-issue can care so little about the sound quality.. Until I see a "mastered for vinyl" or "pressed from analogue masters" I'm not buying anymore Get on Down releases, as beautifully packaged as they might be.

Comment: It's been confirmed, this is a compressed to all hell shitty digital press. Get the plain sleeve reissue or the OG press which can be had for a little over $30 now on ebay. Both sound much better than this gimmick piece of vinyl.

Comment: Any info about the remaster anywhere? Original tapes used? Is it an analog transfer? Where was it done at.
