Sanchez and Stingerman - Hello Josephine 7'' [198x Vena]

Another cover of the famous 1960 hit by Fats Domino. For some reason
this song was a popular one to cover in the dancehall days, though so
were many other oldies and classic blue, soul and r&b tunes. This
version is a bit more sped up and ominous, with a riddim kinda
reminiscent of Daddy Freddy's Bad Boy A Street. Any help here on the
riddim? Thanks guys-

Oh Hi Hello(?)...
Screwdriver - Change My Love 7'' [1987 Harry J Original Pressing]

"Nothing's gonna change my love for you..."

Bruce Lee and Lideay - Dibi Dibi Girl 12'' [1986 Yammie Original Pressing]

One of the many things I love about the dancehall golden era was how
many artists took other celebrities names as their stage names. I mean
who would wanna go up against John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Jackie Chan,
or Bruce Lee (all reggae artists) in any battle? Let alone a sound
Enjoy this silly ass tune!

Hey Hey
Horace Ferguson - On My Own 7'' [198x Ujama Original Pressing]

Pounding bass rewind rewind!

Junior Reid - One Blood/Married Life 12'' [1989 JR Original Pressing]

Two classic examples of why I love the Waterhouse singing style... Tremendous 12''!!
One Blood's lyrics are so relevant over 20 years later still.

King Kong - No Touch De Gorilla 7'' [1987 She Get Up And Skank Original Pressing]

Another rare and hard to find record produced by Bunny Lee. This was
repressed recently by a French company... but this is the real deal og
pressing!! Do not pass on this-

Ape Man Caan Test
Sammy Levi - It's A Shame 12'' [198x Witty Original Pressing]

This beat is guaranteed to have you tapping your feet to the song!

Ey Ey, Ey Yo!
Everton Chambers - Inexperience Lover 7'' [1988 Original Pressing]

Super wicked Everton tune!! Pretty much anything of his on the Parish
label is pure gold... His shit goes for crazy prices on Ebay, not
suprisingly! Enjoy the madness-

Early B - GI Joe 12'' [Energetic Original Pressing]

The Doctor lays down his fascination with the show...
Watch out for the Cobra posse!!

Dr. Who?
Ini Kamoze - Hardware 7'' [1991 Xterminator Original Pressing]

Another massive tune! Fast paced, sleng teng influenced beat by Fattis!

Frankie Paul - Little Walter 12'' [198x CADI Original Pressing]

There's another version of this tune on the Fashion label (which I also
have) that isn't even close to as tuff as this version. This same
version appears on the Blue Mountain label too I believe. Instrumental
is included...
