“This compilation serves as a comprehensive musical history lesson into the foundation of dancehall music. The release of this double whammy collection could not be better timed as it coincides with Jamaica celebrating its 40th Independence. For anyone who started listening and collecting dancehall music from the late eighties to the present time, this album will surely fill some of the missing gaps you may have in your collection, the only problem will be convincing your peers that you have the original vinyl, because the standard crackles have been removed from the tracks. Featured on this album we have greats like Barrington Levy, John Holt, Clint Eastwood and Nicodemus to name a few. Highlights include General Echo’s ‘Bathroom Sex’, in which he uses a lyrical comedy style, and Ranking Dread’s 1981 No 1 classic smash, ‘Fattie Boom Boom’. To all of you dancehall sound clash fans; we have the original ‘Gunman’ by legendary Michael Prophet.”
