Real gems from the late & great Michael Prophet and Frankie Jones –

Michael Prophet (RIP) and Frankie Jones, two authorities in the roots & dancehall scenes who have already left their legacy behind with tunes such as these.
Michael Prophet’s ‘Poverty’ from 1979, originally out on Freedom Sounds, and Frankie Jones ‘Wicked A Go Run’ from 1980, originally out on Redemption Sounds… Now reissued via the impeccable Iroko imprint.

Both cuts come with very serious dub versions to follow…
Poverty sees (most likely) Volcano posse’s Scientist do his thing the way he does it best, and ‘Wicked A Go Run’ comes with an excellent dub too… We’re not 100% sure who did this one to be honest, the mad phaser action points towards Mad Professor, but it’s perhaps more likely that it was Linval Thompson or King Tubby?

Righteous!
