King Jammy, owner and producer of the Jammys label used the rhythm to greatest effect, his label dominated the Jamaican scene between 1985 and 1989, releasing a huge amount of material. Dub Store Records has compiled the best of the 80's heavyweight Dancehall from the Jammys catalogue. Both the vinyl and cd feature the full vocal versions AND the dubs.
A crucial selection for all Dancehall lovers.
STAFF COMMENTSMatt says: One of the best things about working here is that more often than not, in a strange twist of cosmic synchronicity; you’ll start to obsess about a producer or band and desire after much of their back catalogue only to find that it’s hopelessly out of press or expensive. Just when you’ve given up hope, some prestigious label like Dub Store decide to reissue all the best bits for your personal listening pleasure! Such is the case here – King Jammy is up there in my top 3 reggae producers. His 80s, digital style is unlike most other producers in the dub and reggae camps, and tracks like Tonto Irie’s “Ita Ring” have become some of the most sought after hits in my wants list. Omitting the former holy grail (7”’s go for about £80), this compilation, pressed beautifully by Dub Store Japan has loads of Jammy’s other hits, some well known, other’s not as much.
