Trouble Again never ages, unfortunately.
Jammys style.

The two early-eighties LPs.

Irresistibly bumptious, dub-wise excursion on Solomon, with great backing vocals and percussion. More knees-up than eulogy. Do it Jah! (Big Spurs fan, Lone Ranger, by the way.)

Tremendous, raging British protest music from 1987, when ‘police murder Clinton McCurbin’; also memorializing Cherry Groce, Trevor Monerville, Cynthia Jarrett, Colin Roach — ‘the list is never-ending’.

Tough Jammys productions; quality German revive.

Another Black Victory classic missing in action, with superb rhythms and killer dubs, a dream combination of Studio One and Bullwackies musicians, and the young sing-jay already at the top of his game.

Great to have the Saxon man back, in top form on this slug of nasty NW1 digi.

The great UK MC retrieves his war chest from the potting shed.
An expert, moody Tuff Scout re-lick, with a haunting new vibes part and lethal effects.

With Junjo and Soldjie at Channel One. Including the smash Diseases (in which Jah licks trouser-wearing women with ‘elephantiasis… the other one is the poliomyelitis… arthritis and the one diabetes’).

Classic, ebullient deejaying from 1983 — when Lone Ranger ruled the roost — over rhythms like Lacksley Castell’s Mr. Government Man.

Irresistible Isaac Hayes homage, both sides.

Produced by Blacka Morwell at King Tubbys.

Heavy, early-eighties roots extracted from the Roots Me Roots LP.
Tuff Scout in revival mode, coming clean with the dub.
