2 - AGGROVATORS, THE - RASTA DUB '76 - (CD) 
RADIATION ROOTS


During the mid-1970s, the Aggrovators could do no wrong. This ace team of session musicians that was forged as an off-shoot of the Soul Syndicate were responsible for some of the biggest hits of the decade, recorded with Bunny Lees rising stars, such as Johnnie Clarke and his rival, Cornell Campbell. Following on from the great Shalom Dub set of 1975, Rasta Dub 76 is another truly magnificent dub set culled from Aggrovators hits (by Johnny Clarke, Cornell Campbell and others); this time, the entire album was given a scintillating mix-down at King Tubbys studio by the great Prince Jammy, and the sonic excellence has stood the test of time.

3 - ALCAPONE, DENNIS - GUNS DON'T ARGUE - (LP) 
RADIATION ROOTS


Dennis Alcapone's longstanding links with Bunny Lee yielded the excellent 'Gun's Don't Argue' album, first issued in 1972, on which the toaster raps with style over some of Lee's all-time greatest rhythms, including Delroy Wilson's 'Better Must Come', John Holt's 'Left With A Broken Heart' and Slim Smith's rendition of the Temptations soul classic 'Ain't Too Proud To Beg'.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Alcapone Guns Don't Argue 02. It Must Come 03. Too Proud To Beg 04. Everybody Needs Love 05. If It Don't Work Out 06. Teacher Teacher 07. Left With A Broken Heart 08. You Got What It Takes 09. World Wide Love 10. Someone Dancing With My Girl

4 - ALCAPONE, DENNIS - GUNS DON'T ARGUE - (CD) 
RADIATION ROOTS


Cementing his reputation as the star toaster with the small but popular El Paso sound system, based in the Waltham Park area, Dennis Alcapone was one of the first deejays to rise to prominence following U Roys breakthrough in the late 1960s. Born Dennis Smith in the rural district of Culloden, he became immersed in sound system culture after settling in western Kingston. Once El Paso became big on the sound system circuit, dental technician-turned-producer Keith Hudson brought him into the studio for his debut recordings, which led to a debut album for Studio One and hit material for Duke Reid, some cut in concert with his deejay sparring partner, Lizzy. Alcapones longstanding links with Bunny Lee yielded the excellent Guns Dont Argue album, first issued in 1972, on which the toaster raps with style over some of Lees all-time greatest rhythms, including Delroy Wilsons Better Must Come, John Holts Left With A Broken Heart and Slim Smiths rendition of the Temptations soul classic Aint Too Proud To Beg.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Alcapone Guns Don't Argue 02. It Must Come 03. Too Proud To Beg 04. Everybody Needs Love 05. If It Don't Work Out 06. Teacher Teacher 07. Left With A Broken Heart 08. You Got What It Takes 09. World Wide Love 10. Someone Dancing With My Girl

5 - ALCAPONE, DENNIS - INVESTIGATOR ROCK - (CD) 
RADIATION ROOTS


Dennis Alcapone was one of the first sound system deejays to rise to island-wide prominence, following the incredible success of U Roys fluid toasting style, which took Jamaica by storm during the late 1960s. Alcapone, who was born Dennis Smith in the country town of Culloden in Westmoreland, southwestern Jamaica, first made an impact on a sound system called El Paso, based in the rough-n-ready west Kingston district of Waltham Park. Initial recordings for Keith Hudson were strictly underground, but an album for Studio One and popular work for Duke Reid significantly boosted his profile. Dennis Alcapone worked closely with hitmaking producer Bunny Striker Lee from the early 1970s, establishing a friendship that has lasted to the present day; Investigator Rock, which dates from 1977, sees the toaster riding Strikers rockers-styled hits, voiced by the likes of Cornell Campbell, John Holt, and Johnny Clarke.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Natty Knock Them Out 02. Go Dey Natty 03. Wise Man From The East 04. Children Of Tomorrow 05. Investigator Rock 06. No Place Like Home 07. Take Gonna Turn 08. Rock Them Capone 09. Peace And Love 10. Going To The Ball 11. Sweet, Sweet 12. Special Request

9 - BROWN, BARRY - STEP IT UP YOUTHMAN - (LP) 
RADIATION ROOTS


Roots reggae vocalist Barry Brown had a very distinctive singing style. His most obvious role model was the fragile tenor of Horace Andy, but Brown gave his delivery further distinctiveness with a range of wordless slurs, some of which were doubtless inspired by the creatures of the animal kingdom. As with his friend and fellow west Kingston resident, Johnny Clarke, Brown got his start in the many talent shows that were regularly held in the downtown Kingston area, and also got early experience on west Kingston sound systems such as Tape Tone, which gave rise to Barrington Levy, Trinstan Palmer, Sammy Dread, and Rod Taylor among others; Taylor and Brown even had a short-lived duo called The Aliens for a time. Such was his widespread popularity that several different producers all claimed to have been the first to capture his voice on tape, but it is undeniable that Bunny Lee was the first to bring Brown to prominence through the outstanding 1978 hit, Step It Up Youthman, an optimistic meditation on the merits of self-determination, which led to this popular debut album of the same name; as with Johnny Clarkes Enter Into His Gates With Praise, the Step It Up Youthman LP mixed hard-hitting songs of Rastafari devotion with well-executed cover tunes.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Trying Youthman 02. Truth And Right 03. Give Thanks & Praise 04. Im Not A King 05. Things In Life 06. Step It Up Youthman 07. True Love Is The Answer 08. Natty Rootsman 09. Almighty I 10. Rain From The Skies

11 - BROWN, BARRY - VIBES OF BARRY BROWN - (LP) 
RADIATION ROOTS


'Vibes Of Barry Brown' is an album of deep roots reggae, surfaced in limited quantity in 1981 via Sonic Sounds' Gorgon imprint, the sub-label reserved for producers that lacked an established label of their own, and although production is not specifically credited, the album is likely a self-produced work, since Brown is credited as sole songwriter, just as he was on the self-produced 'Cool Pon Your Corner' LP from 1980. The albums are stylistically similar too, with Brown singing over hard roots rhythms, most likely laid at Channel One with the core of the Roots Radics, and voiced and mixed at King Tubby's.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Love And Understanding 02. Twinkle Of An Eye 03. I Am Feeling Right 04. Dedicated 05. Chant Them 06. Follow Fashion People 07. Don't Mess With Dread 08. Sad Girl 09. Dark Shadows 10. Shadow Dub

13 - CAMPBELL, CORNELL - DANCE IN A GREENWICH FARM - (CD) 
RADIATION ROOTS


As noted on another release (see Ropin), Cornell Campbell has enjoyed one of the longest-running careers of any Jamaican singer, and he is blessed with a readily identifiable style too. He began his career for Clement Sir Coxsone Dodd in 1956, when rhythm and blues held sway in Jamaica, and later cut some ska songs for King Edwards. He then passed through the Sensations in the rock steady phase and worked as a solo singer at Treasure Isle, before returning to Studio One with the Eternals, scoring huge hits such as Stars and Queen Of The Minstrel as the 60s gave way to the 70s. His greatest phase of popularity was them brokered by hit-making producer Bunny Lee, who kept him on top right through the 1970s and into the 80s. The 1975 album Dance In A Greenwich Farm was first issued on the Grounation label in the UK. Along with a re-working of Stars re-titled The Sun, a re-working of Queen Of The Minstrel as Girl Of My Dreams and the sound system opus that is the title track, the album has the boastful Conquering Gorgon and a number of keenly-observed cover tunes, including a cut of the Gaylads No Good Girl, a version of the Heptones Why Did You Leave Me and a killer cut of the Uniques Watch This Sound (based on For What Its Worth by Buffalo Springfield).

TRACKLISTING: 01. Girl Of My Dreams 02. I've Got To Keep On Running 03. No Good Girl 04. Somebody Has Stolen My Girl 05. Why Did You Leave Me 06. Watch This Sound 07. Natural Facts 08. Lost In A Dream 09. King Of Hearts 10. The Sun 11. Dance In A Greenwich Farm 12. Conquering Gorgon

15 - CLARKE, JOHNNY - ENTER INTO HIS GATE WITH PRAISE - (LP) 
RADIATION ROOTS


Along with his rival, Cornell Campbell, Johnny Clarke was one of the most esteemed singers of the roots reggae era. Having grown up next door to a popular sound system on Waltham Park Road in western Kingston, Clarkes early fascination with music led him to hang out at Studio One with Jacob Miller while still at school. He then made the rounds of talent shows with Barry Brown, Sugar Minott and the Diamonds, which led to a debut recording in 1973, for the pianist Glen Stair, which remains unreleased. An early effort for Clancy Eccles, God Made The Sea And Sun, was not promoted properly, though Everyday Wondering, for Rupie Edwards, impacted in Britain; Golden Snake for Stamma Houghton and a cover of Smokey Robinsons You Really Got A Hold On Me for Glen Brown were also false starts. The breakthrough finally came in 1975 when Clarke linked with Bunny Lee, who had him voice the Rastafari landmark None Shall Escape The Judgement (written by Earl Zero, who failed to muster a credible take), which kick-started the Flying Cymbal craze. Clarkes resultant debut album, Enter Into His Gates With Praise, mixed hard-hitting Rastafari devotional material with sympathetic cover versions of classics by the likes of the Paragons, Slim Smith and Delroy Wilson, along with a few reggae renditions of some vintage American R&B.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Enter Into His Gates With Praise 02. None Shall Escape The Judgement 03. Move Up Rasta Man 04. Jah Jah We Are Waiting Upon You 05. Don't Talk Too Much 06. If You Should Lose Me 07. Left With A Broken Heart 08. You Are My Woman 09. Walk Away 10. My Desire 11. Hey Girl Don't Bother Me 12. True Believer In Love 13. Please Don't Go 14. In Paradise

17 - CLARKE, JOHNNY - SATISFACTION - (LP) 
RADIATION ROOTS


Clarke's 'Satisfaction' LP was recorded at Harry J for Bunny Lee, voiced at King Tubby's studio, and issued by Third World in 1979. It is a set largely comprised of cover tunes, such as the strong opening update of the Paragons, 'Riding For A Fall', the title track adapting their rock steady hit 'My Satisfaction' in a post-rockers style. Better still is the hard-hitting reality tune 'Play Fool, Get Wise', which uses a proverb to relate a means of avoiding trouble on the dog-eat-dog mean streets of Kingston.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Riding For A Fall 02. Midnight Cowboy 03. It's A Disgrace 04. Satisfaction 05. I Love You Madly 06. Play Fool, Get Wise 07. This Heart Of Mine 08. I Can't Explain 09. Easy Skanking 10. Why Did You Leave

18 - CLARKE, JOHNNY - SATISFACTION - (CD) 
RADIATION ROOTS


Tenor singer Johnny Clarke had many false starts in his youthful days. Hanging around Studio One as a schoolboy with Jacob Miller, Clarke was supposed to record material written for him by Bob Andy, but somehow never made the grade. His 1973 debut recording for lesser-known producer Glen Stair was not released, and early work for Clancy Eccles failed to hit, though Everyday Wondering for Rupie Edwards made an underground impact in Britain and New York. Subsequent singles for Keith Hudson and Glen Brown also did not get very far, but the breakthrough finally came when Bunny Lee asked him to sing None Shall Escape The Judgement, which was written by the singer Earl Zero; it became a massive hit that launched the flying cymbal craze (based on an open-and-closed high-hat cymbal pattern, adapted from the Soul Train theme), and Clarke became one of Lees most reliable hit-makers, partly because Lee stoked a rivalry between him and Cornell Campbell, whom Lee had previously asked to voice None Shall Escape. Clarkes Satisfaction LP was recorded at Harry J for Lee, voiced at King Tubbys studio, and issued by Third World in 1979. It is a set largely comprised of cover tunes, such as the strong opening update of the Paragons Riding For A Fall, the title track adapting their rock steady hit My Satisfaction in a post-rockers style. Better still is the hard-hitting reality tune, Play Fool, Get Wise, which uses a proverb to relate a means of avoiding trouble on the dog-eat-dog mean streets of Kingston.

21 - DILLINGER - MARIJUANA IN MY BRAIN - (CD) 
RADIATION ROOTS


In the early 1970s, top-ranking toaster Lester Bullock got his start on the El Paso sound system in the mean streets of western Kingston. Initially known as Young Capone, since he was a protg of the better-established Dennis Alcapone, he was renamed Dillinger by Lee Scratch Perry, the first producer to record a significant number of tracks with the youth. "Dub Organiser" and "Tighten Up Skank" were somewhat popular when released in 1973 and there were individual tracks cut for Phil Pratt, Augustus Pablo, Prince Tony Robinson and Joe Gibbs, as well as Studio One, who issued debut LP, Ready Natty Dreadie, in 1975. By then, Dillinger was recording a series of singles for hit-making produce Bunny Striker Lee, particularly on Johnnie Clarkes rhythms, though recordings for Channel One and the CB 200 album were what catapulted him into overseas consciousness in 1976, once the outstanding single, "Cokane In My Brain," reached the European pop charts. Marijuana In My Brain dates from 1977 and placed the toaster over some of the Strikers hottest rhythms, previously utilised for Johnnie Clarke scorchers like "Satta" and "Poor Marcus" (along with the odd Ronnie Davis track); Clarkes reading of "Going To A Ball" is here transformed into an ode to the Bouncing Ball, then one of the most popular clubs for black Londoners, and his "African Roots" anthem gets the Dillinger treatment too. Of course, the title track was the biggest hit of the bunch, an ode to the wisdom weed driven by cosmic space synth overdubs.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Marijuana In My Brain 02. Addis-ababba-ithiopia 03. Bouncing Ball 04. Step It In Ethiopia 05. Stop Stealing In The Name Of Jah 06. Come Praise Jah-jah 07. Hard Belling Thomas 08. Rasta Vibration 09. African Roots Rock Reggae

22 - DILLINGER - MARIJUANA IN MY BRAIN - (LP) 
RADIATION ROOTS


In the early 1970s, top-ranking toaster Lester Bullock got his start on the El Paso sound system in the mean streets of western Kingston.

23 - DONALDSON, ERIC - ERIC DONALDSON - (CD) 
RADIATION ROOTS


Eric Donaldsons soaring falsetto has made him one of Jamaicas best-loved vocalists. Born in the country town of Bog Walk in 1947, Donaldson cut some ska material at Studio One in 1964, which never surfaced, and went on to form The West Indians vocal trio at the tail end of rock steady, enjoying minor local hits for Sir JJ and Lee Scratch Perry. Winning the annual Festival Song Competition with love ditty "Cherry Oh Baby" in 1971 saw him team up with former Jamaicans vocalist Tommy Cowan and hit-making producer Bunny Striker Lee, the subsequent recording of the tune at Dynamic Sounds studio resulting in a spectacular success around the world and subsequent hit cover versions by The Rolling Stones and UB40, among many others. This self-titled debut album was recorded at Dynamics in the wake of the hit with the set of upcoming players known as The Inner Circle, which then featured future members of Third World such as keyboardist and arranger Ibo Cooper and guitarist Cat Coore; along with the enduring "Cherry Oh Baby," there is a popular cover version of the doomed romance saga, "Sylvias Mother" and an individual rendition of "Love Of The Common People," as well as the castigating "Miserable Woman," all popular with reggae fans at home and abroad.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Cherry Oh Baby 02. Miserable Woman 03. Got To Get You Off My Mind 04. Please Let Me Love You 05. Go Away 06. Love Of The Common People 07. Never On A Sunday 08. Just Can't Happen This Way 09. Build My World 10. The Lion Sleeps

RADIATION ROOTS


The 1979 release 'Love To Share' was arranged by the great Studio One keyboardist Jackie Mittoo, who co-produced the album with Junior Lincoln, founder of the London-based Bamboo label; the disc straddles the line between lover's rock and roots reggae, remaining a lesser-known classic.

26 - ELLIS, ALTON - LOVE TO SHARE - (CD) 
RADIATION ROOTS


One of Jamaicas most highly-rated vocalists, Alton Ellis made an incredible contribution to the islands popular music. Blessed with a particularly emotive voice that brings shivers to the spine whether singing original material or cover tunes, Ellis was born and raised in Trench Town, the west Kingston ghetto area that gave rise to Bob Marley and the Wailers and countless other singers. Ellis and singing partner Eddie Parkins hit big in 1961 with the ballad Muriel for Coxsone Dodd, and after Parkins moved to the USA, Ellis teamed briefly with John Holt, and then began fronting the Flames harmony group. He excelled in the rock steady style, christening the genre with Rock Steady and I Have Got A Date, bouncing between Studio One and Treasure Isle for a number of years. From 1971, he spent increasing period in London, but continued to record hits in Jamaica for various producers. The 1979 release Love To Share was arranged by the great Studio One keyboardist, Jackie Mittoo, who co-produced the album with Junior Lincoln, founder of the London-based Bamboo label; the disc straddles the line between lovers rock and roots reggae, remaining a lesser-known classic.

27 - JAH STITCH - WATCH YOUR STEP YOUTHMAN - (CD) 
RADIATION ROOTS


After a disjointed childhood that saw him raised largely by two aunts between eastern Kingston and rural St Mary, Melbourne James became the toaster Jah Stitch after running away from home and linking with the Spanglers street gang, whose Princess Street headquarters was also the base of the popular Tipper Tone sound system. After cutting his teeth on Tipper Tone alongside Big Youth and Dr Alimantado, friction over financial recompense saw him forming the rival Black Harmony set in 1975, but because the new sound was based in a district that was on the other side of the political divide, Stitch was shot in the face at point-blank range, his miraculous survival immortalised in the Bunny Lee-produced hit, No Dread Can Dead, which became the title track of Stitchs debut album. Watch Your Step Youthman was the follow-up set released by Bunny in 1977, and again places Jah Stitchs understated Rasta-oriented chanting over a set of rock-hard Aggrovators rhythms, recorded with Johnny Clarke, John Holt, Derrick Morgan and others.

TRACKLISTING: 01. The Rod Of Creation 02. Dreadlocks Don't Play 03. Them Love Natty Dread Everywhere 04. Natty Gone Clear 05. Let's Have Some Fun 06. Crazy Woman 07. Under Heavy Manners 08. God Is Good 09. Old Macdonald's Farm 10. Midnight Iwah 11. Dread Ina Jamdown 12. Tree Of Wisdom

29 - MARLEY, BOB - SOUL REBELS - (CD) 
RADIATION ROOTS


Easily one of the greatest roots reggae albums of all time, Soul Rebels resulted from the intensive partnership brokered by the group and maverick producer, Lee Scratch Perry. It was the first Wailers concept album, conceived as a long-player based on a rebellious theme, rather than a collection of isolated singles, and the presence of the Barrett Brothers in the rhythm section pointed the way for greater glories to come. The Wailers first formed as an unruly 5-piece in 1963, with Junior Braithwaite as lead singer and Beverley Kelso an early member, sometimes replaced by Cherry Green. During their long tenure at Studio One, Bob Marley gradually shifted to the lead vocal role and the robust core of Marley, Peter Tosh and Neville Livingston, aka Bunny Wailer, soon emerged as the mainstays of the group. Perry was involved with the Wailers at Studio One, using their talents for backing vocals on some of his solo work, but the partnership that yielded Soul Rebels was in an entirely different league. The title track, Toshs anguished "400 Years and "Corner Stone" are legendary for their intense power; "Its Alright" set the template for the later "Night Shift," "My Cup" was an individual barebones reading of James Browns "I Guess Ill Have To Cry Cry Cry," while the playful "Try Me" and "No Water" are suggestive odes. Toshs dejected "No Sympathy" and the spirited "Soul Almighty" are other winners and the "Cloud 9" revamp "Rebels Hop" is another joy. All killer, no filler!

TRACKLISTING: 01. Soul Rebel 02. Try Me 03. It's Alright 04. No Sympathy 05. My Cup 06. Soul Almighty 07. Rebel's Hop 08. Corner Stone 09. 400 Years 10. No Water 11. Reaction 12. My Sympathy
