Chaka Demus - Things Serious 7'' [1987 56 Hope Road Original Pressing]

Though on the same label, and with almost identical title as Suru Board's "Serious Thing," this 7'' is quite different but still a tuff tune. Most people think of post "Murder She Wrote" when talking about Chaka, but in the mid 80's he was releasing grittier dancehall material. Same as Pliers for that matter, but when they teamed up and signed on Island Records, they began to release a lot more pop oriented music. Unfortunately, that is what both of them are mainly remembered for, though they both had a string of big hits in JA during the 80's. For the record though, "Murder She Wrote" (the one on Bam Bam riddim) is tuff!
