Wayne Palmer - Hell In A Town 7'' [198x Waterhouse Original Pressing]

One of the best Sleng Teng's of all time in my opinion. Hard riddim by
Tubby, clean delivery by Palmer, and topped off with crazy machine gun
sound effects... Priceless.

Brap Brap!
Malibu - Cuffen A Sound Boy 7'' [1987 Stereo One Original Pressing]

Big big tune! Though he mentions screechies across the borders and
kuffing, this track is actually on neither of those riddims ha. Either
way, Malibu licks shot straight to sound boy head-

Stereo Massive
Super Cat - Permit Fi Gun 7'' [1987 Skengdon Original Pressing]

Another tribute tune to all di dead entertainer. Reflects on the
murderous times in Jamaica during the 80's, in which even musicians
weren't safe. Super Cat's solution? Arm yourself artists! This ones over the African Beat riddim.

Nuthead Irie - Make My Love Come Down/Reverend Badoo - Level 12'' [198x Pouyatt Original Pressing]

Two nice cuts of M16 riddim, same as Johnny Osbourne's Peaceful Man tune.

Side A

Side AA
Daddy Lilly - Bob Marley Fifty Dollar Bill 7'' [198x Photographer Original Pressing]

Robert Nesta tribute track. Put di man on di money!

Respect the King Man
Chris Wayne - Play Anancey 7'' [198x Youth Promotion Original Pressing]

Early and unique YP tune with Wayne referring to the West African
mythological trickster spider, Anansi, whose stories are also popular in
much of the Caribbean.
