If you’re looking to grab the RZA produced The Man With the Iron Fists vinyl soundtrack then you may find yourself a little confused about what to buy. There are a few different versions of this vinyl soundtrack that can make trying to sort out which one to get a little difficult.

There’s a few versions of the various artists soundtrack that have made it to vinyl, featuring all new exclusive music from a handful of artists from the Wu-Tang camp including RZA himself, Ghostface Killah, Method Man, Raekwon, Kanye West, Corrine Bailey Rae, The Black Keys, Pusha T and Mabel John. There also appears to be a couple of versions of the original score by RZA and Howard Drossin that are available on Vinyl LP.

But don’t despair,  I’ve got you covered with all the information you need. Well I think I have. To be honest, trying to sort out all this release info was a bloody nightmare. But using a gazillion sources, I think I’ve pieced it together, at least mostly. Good enough anyway, but feel free to offer any corrections if you know better, since perfect is always better than good enough.

To help you understand the differences quickly, it doesn’t really come down to the music itself. Most of the differences are in special edition release packaging, such as colored vinyl, quality of the pressing, etc.

So with that said, below I’ll give you the dish on those details. I’ll show you what’s been released, what’s yet to be released, what’s sold out, and what’s still available from other sources than the original seller that I’ve been able to find.

6. The Man With the Iron Fists (Original Score, Vinyl LP)

Now this is a vinyl release of the original score that I’m not entirely certain about. There are vendors selling it on Amazon using the above cover as a display. There are also vendors selling it on Ebay using the above cover as a display. It is also advertised with a release date about a month before the original score vinyl LP I’ve posted above at no.2 above, though I believe it’s real release date is October 30, 2012.

I think the only difference between this and no.2 above is that this is the second vinyl release of the original score and is not 180 gram audiophile vinyl.

Features of this release:

  • Black vinyl (not colored)
  • Release date: October 30, 2012
  • Number of LP’s: 2
  • Label: Soul Temple Entertainment / Traffic Entertainment Group
  • Runtime: 48:56
