Presented as a 7” box set for the first time ever is the Wu Tang Clan’s classic debut. It’s a beautiful thing spreading the tracks over six 7” records and including 56 page book with interviews and lyrics etc. Wonderful for Wu Tang obsessives but just imagine how many times you are going to have to get off yo ass when playing it.

- Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) (Deluxe 7inch Casebook) by Wu-Tang Clan
10/10 Tom 25th May 2018
If I'm rating the album itself then this is without a doubt a 10 on 10 hip hop classic that everybody on Earth should own. Released in 1993 at a time when West Coast hip hop was all the rage (NWA's Straight Outta Compton, Dr. Dre's The Chronic), Enter the Wu Tang (36 Chambers) immediately put the birthplace of hip hop, New York, right back on the map and into the public consciousness. Featuring the cold, sparse, evocative production of RZA and the equally cold-blooded lyrics of the various members, Enter the Wu Tang brought some storm clouds to cover up all that Cali sunshine. With the city galvanized by this exciting new crew the likes of Nas and the Notorious BIG were spurred on to release their own New York hip hop classics within the year.
This novel release of the album on a series of 7" records with a 56 page book of photos, lyrics and interviews is pretty cool and something Wu-Tang die-hards would love to have, but the constant requirement to flip and replace records is likely to ruin the unique atmosphere that the Clan worked so hard to create.
