Murderous collection of pure soundboy killing Jammys Gold!
The no1 top-a-top dancehall institution out of Kingston, instigators of the digital dancehall explosion in the 80’s, King Jammys.
Now collected in one comprehensive double-disc extravaganza, collecting a heap of their most prized 7″s on a couple of fresh plates along with a very worthy visual presentation!
20 cuts, all of them equally crucial.
Featuring stone cold classics such as Banana Man’s deadly dancehall bubbler ‘Musical Murder’, King Kong’s tough, timely Tempo riddim input ‘Can’t Ride Computer’, Nitty Gritty’s cool delivery on ‘Butter Bread’, Robert Lee’s soundboy assasinating ‘Come Now’ and many, many, many more!
The collection is of course focused on these seminal vocal cuts, but Prince / King Jammy does get a bit of solo shine on the last few instrumental cuts.. He does provide the backbone for the musical murder throughout, so it’s only fair.
Essential collection of 80’s digital.
Gatefold 2LP pressed on Crystal Clear vinyl.
Includes a heavyweight gatefold jacket and two doubled sided inserts with original artwork unearthed from the Konami vault.
