Fantastic, fountain-head deejaying loaded with upful verbal brilliance (and signature cocks crowing, shrill yeah-yeah-yeahs) over the best vocal performances of the greatest Studio One rhythms then available.
Class deejay album, start to finish — Buju tears up The Surfaris’ Wipeout, and vintage Sly And Robbie vibes on the smash Driver A. Angry dancehall avantgardism in with some nice mid-tempo and roots rubadub.
Like some of the deejay’s earlier sides for Mudie’s, this cracking toast of Conquering Lion was voiced at King Tubby’s. Winston Edwards released through DIP in the UK; Spalding’s next stop was Brentford Road.
Ace, heavy DJ LP, originally out on Live And Learn in 1977. Music by the Aggrovators and the Revolutionaries, mixed at Channel One. Kicks off with a toast of Wreck Up My Life; Satta is here; Johnnie Clarke…
His first album, with brilliant interjections from Dennis Brown and Alton Ellis.
Eight classic titles on seven by the great man, back in. Red vinyl too, this killer.
