1 - U-ROY - I AM THE ORIGINATOR - (CD) 
KINGSTON SOUNDS


We have compiled some of U Roy's best loved cuts from his mid 70's period when all were still looking at him for guidence. The opening cut Call On Me sees him working over Delroy Wilson's 'Got To Be There'. You Never Get Away gets U Roy answering Delroy Wison's 'Keep On Rocking'. Johnny Clarke's 'Time Gonna Tell' with rootsy bassline turns into Every Knee Shall Bow. Cornell Campbell the Gorgon himself gets his 'Check Mr Morgon' turned into Gorgon Wise. Johnny Clarke's Hold On gets reworked. Jeff Barnes 'Blowing In The Wind' tuned into Number 1 and alongside King of The Road which sees Lennox Brown blow his saxophone over the instrumental 'In The Swing of Things', was one of U Roys first releases. Linval Thompson's 'Let Jah Arise' is versioned to Joyful Locks. I Originate which lends us to the title of this compilation, says it as it is, a classic built over Dave Barker's 'Shocks of Mighty'. Linval Thompson again provides the backbone with his Cool Down Your Temper cut for U Roys version. The mighty Burning Spear's Creation Rebel although providing our next track, it is Johnny Clarke's version that gets worked over. Leo Graham's 'Birds of A Feather' turns into Stick Together. Soul Syndicates instrumental 'Goliath' grows into Riot. A big hit for Max Romeo Wet Dream sounds great under U Roy's new rendition.

4 - U-ROY - THE ORIGINATOR - (CD) 
RADIATION ROOTS


Ewart Beckford, aka Daddy U Roy, changed the focus of Jamaican popular music by turning the sound system deejay from an incidental figure that told jokes in between records and made announcements about where the next dance would be held, to a major star whose rhyming toasts were as important as the lyrics for any singer. U Roys command on the microphone on sets like Dickies Dynamic and Sir George the Atomic paved the way for his influential residency on King Tubbys Hi Fi. Keith Hudson, Lee Scratch Perry and Bunny Striker Lee were some of the first producers to bring him into the studio, but the breakthrough hits came for Duke Reid in 1970, with Roy toasting over old rock steady rhythms. Work for Prince Tony subsequently brought him international fame through a contract with Virgin, but he continued to record grassroots efforts at home. The Originator gathers some of the greatest tracks U Roy cut for Striker, voiced as usual at King Tubbys studio over hot hits by Johnny Clarke, Cornell Campbell, Gregory Isaacs, and others; "King Tubbys Skank" celebrates Tubby himself.

TRACKLISTING: 01. The Originator 02. Jump For Joy 03. Heavy Duty 04. I Shall Not Remove 05. Too Much War 06. Musical Vision 07. King Tubby's Skank 08. Gorgan Wise 09. Don't Worry 10. Feel The Spirit 11. Joyful Locks 12. Rock For I
