Released the same day (28th March 1995) as Big L’s debut (see below) was ODB’s solo debut ‘Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version’, the second solo album from a Wu member following the group’s 1993 debut ‘36 Chambers’. ODB’s LP follows in the footsteps of that debut not only in title, but also in sonics with the majority of the album’s production handled by RZA and guest vocal appearances coming courtesy of the group’s core members Method Man, Ghostface and Raekwon. Extracts from the album’s second single ‘Shimmy Shimmy Ya’ appear on our 1995 Rap Megamix. The album comes in at #4 in Ego Trip’s list of 1995’s Top 25 Rap Albums.
