I was in the record store and noticed that the new versions of GHOSTFACE KILLAH - IRONMAN is now cut down to 14 songs......due to sample clearence problems......

The cd I have has 17 songs on it...........it is an original pressing though

I guess the 17 song version is now collectors item....

I also bought the Canadian version (14 tracks) of SUPREME CLIENTELE when it came out......it had IN THE RAIN instead of THE GRAIN in the tracklisting......furthermore the Canadian version was way different.......the AMERICAN version is way better, it has tons of different samples and skits, even an extra verse from GHOSTFACE on WU BANGA 101........so if you have chance get the AMERICAN version (21 tracks)

I also bought BULLETPROOF WALLETS when it came out, and the tracklist was fucked......where was THE SUN and THE WATCH????

Plus many of tracks for PRETTY TONY were cut due to sample clearence.......


All Ghost's ablums have been fucked due to sample clearence

well I think it is a legal thing.....they have to cut the album down or get sued

It probably is. But this happening to all his albums seems a bit unprofessional.
They should have done their sample homework.

That's correct. I checked it out.

I thought it was Fish because of the different production crew and the "*" mark.

Anyway, still a loss.

I don't really get remastering hip-hop - you don't really want a grimy NY cut remastered.
