Definitely going to buy this. Get On Down's reissues have all been great so far.

I never heard of Get On Down Records, what do they do? They release old, remastered albums again? It's only that?

Yes, it's only that. They're re-releasing classic albums from the 90s. They already did Return To The 36 Chambers, OBFCL, Liquid Swords & Ironman.

Classic album reissues >>> new trash released by shitty label

So far got them all except for the purple cassette.

I think 36 Chambers will be added in time but I hope (don't think it's going to happen) Wu-Tang Forever will finally get the remastered reissue it deserves. I like the originals the most but an album like Forever deserves a reissue.
