Fat Man Ridim Section – Bald Head Justice
Top Ranking Sounds 1978

Early eighties, with a couple of friends, we really got stuck in reggae
music. An album that was permanently on the side of the turntable
was this dub version of Jacob Miller’s ‘Wanted’. Bald Head Justice
with the Fat Man Ridim Section of Ian Lewis and his buddies with
Sly and Robbie. I was totally hooked on this one. It is not complex
but somehow has a special touch, nice guitars horns and keys.
A dub lover’s treat you don’t wanna miss out on. I must
have played it thousands of times ..

In de vroege jaren tachtig ben ik met een aantal vrienden echt
even blijven steken in de reggae. Een plaat die niet van de draai-
tafel week was deze dub versie van Jacob Miller’s lp ‘Wanted’.
Bald Head Justice met de Fat Man Ridim Section van Ian Lewis
en zijn companen en met Sly en Robbie. Ik was compleet ver-
slingerd aan dit album. Hij is niet ingewikkeld maar heeft op
de een of andere manier iets bijzonders. Een dub
liefhebber’s droom plaat die je niet wil missen ..

” ..Jah will never give the power to
a bald head man, to judge a rasta man .. ”

Jah Woosh – Dreadlocks Affair
Trojan Recordings Ltd. 1976

Jah Woosh, real name Neville Beckford, is 23 years old, a
virgo, and one of the most exciting ‘toasters’ to emerge
from Jamaica in 1976. In may, during his visit to England
he had three records in the reggae top ten at the same
time. We feel this must be some kind of a record!
On this album, his first major solo album to be released in
England, he is backed by the Mighty Clouds and on several
of the titles his vocals are assisted by other Jamaican
artists.
On Albert Classau he is joined by Shelton Wallis and on
Falling in Love, Veronica Adams accompanies him. He
is also joined by Levi Williams on Don’t Do That and
Hubert Lee on In Deh.
All titles are written and produced by himself and
recorded at King Tubby’s and Channel One studio.
A fine debut album from Jah Woosh which should
really establish him as one of the front-line
skankers from Jamaica. (liner notes)

01 – Omega dollar
02 – Midnight version

Linval Thompson – Look How Me Sexy
Greensleeves 1982

Thompson was raised in Kingston, Jamaica, but spent time
with his mother in Queens, New York, and his recording ca-
reer began around the age of 20 with the self-released “No
Other Woman,” recorded in Brooklyn, New York. Returning to
Jamaica in the mid 1970s he recorded with Phil Pratt, only
to return to New York to study engineering. Returning again
to Jamaica, he worked with Lee “Scratch” Perry at his Black
Ark studio, recording “Kung Fu Man”, and recorded with Bunny
Lee, which resulted in his debut album, Don’t Cut Off Your
Dreadlocks, in 1976.
