When those first Wu-Tang covers 7"s dropped, it was definitely a lightbulb moment for the El Michels Affair. The response was rabid (we moved hundreds of those records) while the diehard fans demanded more. Nearly three years later, the Shaolin project is complete in form of this full length. In addition to the versions from Enter The Wu-Tang (CREAM, Da Mystery Of Chessboxin (so wicked), Can It Be All So Simple, Bring Da Ruckus," and "Protect Ya Neck"), the crew has picked some of their favorite solo Wu moments including "Cherchez, Incarcerated Scarfaces, Shimmy Shimmy," and others. Also look out for the hidden 37th chamber. Meticulous execution as usual, highly recommended.
