Product Details
Description
Get On Down is proud to bring you GZA's Liquid Swords in its most deluxe treatment ever. The Liquid Swords Chess Box contains the entire Liquid Swords album and complete instrumentals, as well as in depth, full color liner notes with contributions from GZA himself, inner jackets and dust sleeves with memorable vintage artwork from the original release, and even a complete full-sized wooden chess set, which can be played on the chess board contained on the inner lining of the box.

In the early to mid nineties and at the peak of his powers as a producer, Wu-Tang Clan mastermind RZA crafted a distinctive soundtrack at his basement studio in Staten Island. Whether or not he knew it at the time this haunting landscape of dusty samples, sharp snares and menacing urban gloom, would soon become a pillar of hip hop history. These instrumentals, peppered in with frequent interludes of dialogue from the classic samurai flick Shogun Assassin, became the core of the GZA's 1995 sophomore LP Liquid Swords and would eventually be considered by many as each individual's finest work. Cerebral, strategic and precise with his words, GZA crystallizes a range of influences - from chess to kung-fu films to mob flicks and Eastern philosophy - into sharply delivered rhymes. Many would argue there is no greater MC to compliment the RZA's production as well as GZA did on Liquid Swords.

Housed in a sturdy wrapped hard board box with a deluxe magnetic clasp, this edition of Liquid Swords spans across 8 sides of vinyl with the complete album as a double LP and the full RZA produced instrumentals as a double LP. The album features appearances by the entire Wu-Tang Clan, and includes the auspicious debut of Killah Priest on "B.I.B.L.E." Liquid Swords now has the vinyl reissue deserving of a project acknowledged as one of the "100 Best Rap Albums" by The Source and "Top 100 Records of the 1990s" by Pitchfork.
