The RZA presents Shaolin Soul Selection: Volume 1, a 24 joint album from the vaults of Stax Records featuring songs that inspired classic Wu gems. The album is available as a digital download, a 3 vinykl set and a 2 cd set on Soul Temple Records’ band camp site
Apparently, RZA has been a loyal fan, customer and purveyor of Stax Records brand of soul. If you listen back to those classic WU-Tang joints you can likely hear the Stax influence.
Soul Temple is RZA’s soul label distributed by RED Distribution. The first releaase was the soundtrack to RZA’s movie, The Man With the Iron Fists. As reported by AllHipHop.com “According to RZA, Soul Temple Records will release independent minded artists from a variety of genres, from the creative community.”
