The RZA Presents Shaolin Soul Selection, Vol. 1

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Fred Thomas
Wu-Tang beatmaker and mad genius producer RZA offers up a collection of inspired soul cuts from the Stax Records vaults on Shaolin Soul Selection, Vol. 1. The 24 tracks on this compilation definitely point to some of the inspirational points for RZA's raw, earthy beats, and capture the deep, late-night energy of a specific moment in '70s soul. Standout tracks include selections from the Emotions and Booker T. & the MG's as well as lengthy selections from Isaac Hayes and two very different takes on the same song, "I Forgot to Be Your Lover," as interpreted by both the Mad Lads and William Bell.
