Nas & Ghostface “WR1 Remixes”

Friday, January 29th, 2010

So this year I decided I was finally going to put a small dent in recording some of my vinyl. Some for the blog (see the Othorized F.A.M. & Cappadonna rips), others just for me. I should probably be saving this one for the next volume of Illegal Remixes with Step One, but I couldn’t wait. I must have bought this one in 98 or 99 from HipHopSite or Sandbox. The labels were white with no writing, no nothing (I made these “fake” labels) and the only info was the etching in the runout said WR1. Sorry about any crackles and pops, I did everything I could to clean it up. If you have any info on this white label, please let me know.

Wu-Tang Clan “Dirty & Stinkin’ (Bootleg Vinyl)”

Tuesday, August 18th, 2009

And by Wu-Tang Clan I really mean the one and only… Ol’ Dirty Bastard. This was by far one of my favorite non-album tracks that ever surfaced. This bootleg vinyl was another one of my prized scores from the mid to late 90’s while I scoured all over Chicago buying just about anything Wu-Tang I could get my hands on (I think I’m still paying off my credit card bills).

So that was the good and now comes the bad and the ugly. In 2001 there was a promo cd single that surfaced containing some horrible whack ass Main Mix and a Remix for “Dirty & Stinkin’.” This time around they threw in Method Man to try and save things. Complete failure. Almost as bad, in the same year there was Phil Collins cover album called Urban Renewal. Ol’ Dirty’s contributions was “Sussudio.” Even DJ Clark Kent had his hand in it and they totally killed it, in a very bad way. If you care to hear how people ruined such a great track, grab it below.


Wu-Tang Clan “After The Laughter Comes The Tears (Bootleg VLS)”

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

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.”
