1 - JAH STITCH - DREAD INNA JAMDOWN - (CD) 
KINGSTON SOUNDS


The Mighty Jah Stitch was a legend in Jamaica, making the move as so many ghetto youths have tried from Bad Man to Music Man. Jah Stitch embraced the DJ Culture that he himself was an integral part of.He put not one but two musical stamps on the format. His initial Big Youth sounding chants grew from working alongside the man on the mic. The second almost spoken vibe came about after a well documented incident that led to him being shot .He lived to tell the tale and cut some of the finest Roots DJ cuts, with his new vocal style that many copied but few have surpassed.We have selected some of his best known tracks to show the knack of working a killer rhythm and dubbed vocal with an almost call and response story telling style.The opening and title track to this set Dread Inna Jamdown sees him working over John Holts In The Springtime.The second cut Dem Seek Natty Everywhere works another John Holt classic Forgot to Say I Love You.After some hits in the 1970s, the 1980s would see a short name change to Major Stitch.But we feel that his best loved monicker Jah Stitch serves the man well.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Dread Inna Jamdown 02. Dem Seek Natty Everyehere 03. Make A Joyful Noise 04. Serious Thing 05. The Best By Any Test 06. Natty Dread Skanking 07. From Dusk Till Dawn 08. Hold On Tight 09. Love For Everyone 10. Rock To The Beat 11. Natty Going On So 12. Live Together In Harmony 13. Tune Into Jumpers* 14. Channel 1 Lesson*

3 - 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
