GZA: ‘Liquid Swords Instrumentals’ on vinyl + battle scene screen prints (2014)

Wood block GZAThe fetishization of early Wu material continues with the limited edition release of the the remastered instrumentals of GZA‘s classic Liquid Swords LP which are now available for a limited period only in a variety of packages that generally consist of some combo of the vinyl instrumentals and screen printed or even wood block artwork. The pricing’s not quite as ridiculous as the multiple millions that have already been offered for the Wu-Tang’s forthcoming one-copy-only The Wu – Once Upon a Time In Shaolin. It’s still mainly going to be Gen X types who copped it the first time around on cassette and have now climbed the greasy pole so high they can spunk $150 on, say, the wood block artwork who are the target market here. On the other hand you could always wait for some neo-yuppie to buy it and then boost it off them…
