Ghostface Killah's "Ironman" To Be Re-released On 2LP With Replica Poster

Exclusive: The same Get On Down imprint that's releasing Common's "Resurrection" box-set has a 2LP package coming with Tony Starks', Rae & Cappa's '96 gem.

Released October 29, 1996, Ghostface Killah's debut Ironman is widely considered to be among the Wu-Tang Clan's best works. With a supporting cast of Raekwon and Cappadonna, and Soul sample production from RZA, Ironman would garner a #2 chart appearance its first week.

Almost 14 years later, the album containing such tracks as "All That I Got Is You," Daytona 500" and "Winter Warz" is coming back to 2LP vinyl on re-release on September 14, 2010. Get On Down Records has acquired the rights to a limited vinyl run of Ghost's debut, and will contain a replica 18" x 24" 1996 poster used to promote the original Razor Sharp/Epic Records release.

Fans will also be pleased to know that "Soul Controller" will be included on 2LP of Ironman, a song initially removed from follow-up pressings of the album, due to sample clearances.

In related news, Get On Down is releasing a box-set of Common's Resurrection with liner notes from Common, and two rare remixes from Large Professor.

      Agreed. When your worst album is only The Pretty Toney Album, your career is something special. Dude has no bad solo albums. He's a prolific member in the greatest group in hip hop history. Not to mention Put It on the Line with Trife, 718 is pretty decent, and so is Wu-Massacre. No rapper has as strong as career as Ghost.

      Ghost definitely is the greatest. No other rapper has a better discography. Ghost is the best storyteller out there.

    • c/gaddic

      In your dreams you idiot! He's not even the best in the WU Clan! Sure he has his classic material and is a legend But please don't over-rate NO WU member is anywhere near the GOAT!!! Leave those slots for Rakim or Nas

    Supreme Clientele is better.

  • Taliban

    One of the best Albums ever!

  • r.pgh

    i know i'll get shit for this, but Ironman is my favorite Wu solo album. I thought Only Built 4 Cuban Linx and Liquid Swords were both classics, but to me Ironman was above and beyond any solo that any Wu member ever put out.

  • nice...

    it's ghost's album but rae had a verse on ther called faster blade. deadly shit. that verse alone to me is an example of hiphop at it's finest. wildflower would blow ya mind too.
