ROOTSMAN VIBRATION AT KING JAMMY’S
this 4cd set collects up four of prince jammy’s most sought after roots testaments.
‘folly ranking’ issued in 1980 at the height of johnny osbourne fever contains some of bumpy’s best performances including ‘mr walker’, ‘jah over’, ‘trench town school’ & of course the massive hit title track. barry brown’s showcase album from the same year was unleashed in true drum & bass jammy fashion with ‘best thing in life’, ‘it ago dread’, ‘school days’ etc stretching out twelve inch style to deliver a waterhouse rock solid vocal & dub masterpiece. noel phillips' big break came when jammy voiced the maverley youth for the classic ‘youth man’ / ‘living in the ghetto’ double-sider. its success would lead to the release the following year of the youth man vibrations album & its ten tracks did not disappoint.
