Horace Andy Meets Naggo Morris/Wayne Jarrett — Mini Showcase (2002)

“This intriguing reissue (packaged to look like a vintage Jamaican dub plate) brings together two samplers of 12″ singles from Lloyd ‘Bullwackie’ Barnes’ New York-based Wackies label, both of which were originally released in 1983. The first sampler (originally called Wayne Jarrett-Mini Showcase) features five tracks by Wayne Jarrett, along with dubs of three of the songs, while the second (originally entitled Horace Andy Meets Naggo Morris) offers two songs each (and their corresponding dubs) from Horace Andy and Naggo Morris. Spliced together like this, the resulting album has a tremendous cohesion, and feels very much like a single integrated project, with each track and dub exhibiting the trademark Wackies stripped-down, gritty roots approach to recording and mixing. Each of the singers turns in solid vocals, particularly the criminally under-recorded Morris on ‘You Rest on My Mind.'”
