Scion Sashay Success - Cry Fi Me Girl 12'' [198x Eclipse Original Pressing]

Scion just has that unmistakeable style, not only vocally, but also the instrumentals that he was usually paired up with. A lot of his material was actually self produced, which he doesn't get enough credit for. Philip Smart, who produced this tune, is also an underrated icon of Jamaican music, having started his career as an engineer for Augustus Pablo in the 70's. By the 80's he had relocated to NY and was banging out hits for his Eclipse label (and others) well into the 90's. This is a crucial example of that (version included).
