Horace Andy - Curfew 7'' [198x Ujama Original Pressing]

From a historical standpoint, I was very intrigued by this 7'' when I first picked it up. As most know, Jazzbo was a deejay in the roots golden years, later starting Ujama in the 1977 to begin producing. There are some sparse roots releases on the label, and by the early 80's Jazzbo began incorporating a dancehall feel into his growing number of releases. As an old chatter, and forefather of the dancehall sound, Jazzbo was already a step ahead of the game when the digital takeover began. This release here is a perfect example of that. Probably cut around 1983, it still has a pre-digi instrumental, yet has digital elements and a dancehall mood. On top of this, the tune side features one of the older 70's style labels, while the version side has the newer 80's label design. It's like this record can't decide who it is... Yo, what you claim holmes?!
