Tenor Saw - Come Me Just A Come 12'' [1987 Blue Mountain Original Pressing]

Ruff n tuff chune by the man named Saw! Tenor did not record for any single producer for very long, instead cutting singles for various labels during his short rise to fame. Some of his better known releases were compiled by Blue Mountain for his only LP, titled Fever (based on hit title track). However, most of those tunes can be found as 7'' and 12'' releases, as well as other tracks that for whatever reason never made it on to the LP. This is one of those non-LP tracks, and is just as deadly as ever! Can be found as a repress 12'' on Blue Mountain as well as Blue Trac labels. * I've included the version here too.

Little John and Peter Metro - True Confession (?) / Tenor Saw - Roll Is Called 12'' [198x Powerhouse Original Pressing]

Double sided 12'' release in a disco stylee! First side has the title track from Little John's True Confession LP (Powerhouse, 1984) which was a massive hit when released. It is strangely mixed to include Peter Metro chatting about war and crime on the second half of this disco mix (I don't know the name of the Metro tune, or whether it was even released on it's own). The second side is the true killer though, with Saw listing a roll call of big names in the dancehall scene. This tune is included on the Fever LP (as Roll Call) and was even covered by the reggae/ska-cover band Sublime on their Jailhouse track. The mixing on this side is more appropriately done with the version haha.
