Johnny Clarke – Don’t Trouble Trouble (1989)

“Over the years, a plethora of roundups from this formidable artist have hit the streets of Jamaica, Britain, Europe, and the U.S., all dedicated exclusively to the singer’s recordings for producer Bunny Lee. Invariably there’s some repetition, but so many singles did Johnny Clarke unleash under Lee’s aegis, there’s more than enough to go around. Inevitably there were some duds amid the barrage of hits, but the bulk of the material is of such high quality that fans really can’t go wrong. With that said, Don’t Trouble Trouble still rises to the top of the compilation pile. With copious hindsight — the set was released in 1989, the British Attack label was able to choose tracks not based on the hottest sounds of the time, but those that were the most enduring. Nicely balanced between cultural concerns, romantic interests, and dancehall bravado, the set presents a particularly well-rounded picture of this crucial artist. Although it’s still only a partial one, as Trouble troubles only to pull from the period 1975-1976, early in Clarke’s partnership with Lee, equally great numbers were still to come. …”
