Ol' Dirty Bastard's "Return To The 36 Chambers" To Be Reissued With Laminated Food Stamp Card

The estate of Ason has licensed Get On Down with an incredible vinyl and 2CD pressing that includes extra liner notes, posters, remixes, stickers, a wallet and more.

Wu-Tang Clan co-founder Ol' Dirty Bastard's debut album, Return To The 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version is the latest 1990s release to be officially re-issued on vinyl and 2CD by Boston, Massachusetts-based Get On Down Records. The late emcee's 1995 Elektra Records gold debut, which was almost entirely produced by the RZA, will come back into print on November 22.

Get On Down has added a deluxe bill-fold wallet, laminated 'food stamp" card, a vintage "on tour" poster, promotional sticker, extended artwork with liner notes, milestones and accolades. The re-issue's second disc features: 12" versions, remixes, instrumentals, and acapellas.

The food stamp card, prominently featured as the original album's cover art, plays on O.D.B.'s famous MTV segment where the platinum Wu-Tang emcee collected state-appropriated funds at a check-cashing store.

According to Get On Down, the re-issue is licensed and approved by the estate of Ol' Dirty Bastard. Previously, the label released deluxe re-issues of fellow Wu-Tang Clan member Ghostface Killah's Ironman and Supreme Clientele.
