Wayne Palmer - Hold You Corner 7'' [198x Firehouse Original Pressing]

During the peak of dancehall in the 80's, everyone was trying to make a name for themselves as an entertainer, and thus taking stage names to be recognized. Some were silly nicknames and slick sounding titles, while others were meant to sound like real names (example: Paul Blake became Frankie Paul). I do not know if Wayne Palmer was his name given to him at birth, but it is the stage name later used to cut some massive records. Palmer unfortunately had a rather generic name, and coupled with a low volume of work released, the artist has flown under the radar of a lot of reggae fans. Digi collectors though are well aware of him, particularly his work with King Tubby and also Hugh Redman James. Here is probably his hardest tune by Tubby (other than Hell In A Town), though sadly my copy has seen better days. Either way check it out!

Wayne Palmer - Yu Nu Remember 7'' [1985 Original Pressing]

Oooooh weeee this is a tuff digi chune! Wicked one a way cut of Stalag that almost doesn't resemble the original riddim at all. This one was later repressed by Dub Store in their Redman International collab release, where 12 of Hugh James biggest tunes were re-released. Of those re-released set, you can find the original copies of these on my blog: Wayne Palmer - Yu Nu Remember, Puddy Roots - When I Release, Admiral Tibett - New Tactics, Dave Bailey - Concrete Jungle, and Tony Tuff - Careless People.
