Classic.......yall remember GZA - Liquid Swords Album?!!

Diatribe has the following to say about the actual movie:
This movie is a heavily reedited version of the amazing, six-part Lone Wolf and Cub series, which was directed by Kenji Misumi. The American director, Robert Houston, edited scenes from the first three films in the series to somehow create a new, although quite sloppy, version of the story. I will give him some credit for adding more sound effects, which were severely lacking in the original picture; and for recruiting W. Michael Lewis and Mark Lindsey to create this excellent soundtrack. This new music, along with the eerie narration from the boy, make this film better suited for the ADD American public. The original, although vastly superior, would be considered rather boring. If you're interested in the movie and appreciate quality film making, I highly recommend watching the original Kenji Misumi masterpiece as it was intended to be seen. Shogun Assassin is a lobotomized version of Lone Wolf And Cub.

Hi, link working fine now and love this soundtrack (Liquid Swords is one of my all time favorite hip hop albums) Can you tell me who this was recorded by?

you should change the name of your website to Blaxploitation and Kung-Fu cinema & music, or something to that effect. Blax. and early 70's/80's Kung-Fu aren't the same in any way with the exception of being low budget works. anyway, here's a little bit of film history.
