I swear, I’d do just about anything for the Wu to have this raw, hungry sound again. Don’t even get me started on the most recent album, which is heads above the last few. But really, how can you call it a Wu-Tang album when it doesn’t have any verses from GZA, Method Man, Masta Killa or even a spot from Cappadonna?
Anyways, I picked up this vinyl back in 1996, one of my first online purchases ever (from what used to be CD Europe.) Back then everything was straight text in a list form, so I had no idea what I’d receive. But the moment I put it on I knew there was something different about this track from my cd version. It took me several years to figure out that this is bootleg of a white label of the original vinyl that the Wu-Tang sold out of the trunk of their cars (so the story goes). That makes this track the demo version of “Tearz.”
