El Michels return again to the Wu-Tang chambers – and the results this time might even be better than before! Wu-Tang forged their initial sound out of a love of offbeat samples and unusual funk – so it's only fitting that one of the hippest funk groups around strip the music right ...

Jive, 1994. Very Good+ ... $14.99
One of the many lost Hiero efforts on Jive.

Slug and Murs are back – and with their first album that isn't a tribute to a sexy female star!
