‘Run for cover now / I’m takin’ over / So please step aside / Because I ain’t gonna sympathise / Boy I’m gonna lay it on / From dusk till dawn / With a right to the head and a left to the cheek / (Musically)…’ From 1967 with Lynn Taitt, straight to the head of Coxsone Dodd.
The first JA vocal album onto the ark. Dazzling devotional singing — almost too much beauty.
A classic, originally released in 1986 on the Heavyweight label (spun out of the Heavyweight soundsystem, from the Wood Green and Tottenham areas of north London).
A beautiful rock steady vocal from the multi-talented Adams. This in-demand cut comes complete with added harmonies missing from the better known version. With a Val Bennett of the same tune.
Originally released on the Five Arts Label in 1977, then re-issued on Wackies in 1980, this album provides a register of producer Clive Hunt’s work with a who’s who of JA notables.
Originally issued in 1983 — basically the dub counterpart of Sugar Minott’s Wicked Ago Feel It album, and worth buying for the version of Real Rock alone.
Stunning mystical roots in the Bullwackies tradition. From the early eighties, a vocal trio from the Bronx, led by Andrew McCalla, fronting the New Breed; and mixed at Channel One. Just essential.
