Various - King Jammy at the Controls

Well, Abe's been bugging me to post some crazy jamaican dancehall vocalese shit lately, so I comply, starting with this awesome collection of Jammy's best and most notorious 80's productions, when he transformed from Prince to King. Includes amazing cuts from Shabba Ranks, Junior Reid, Nicodemus, Admiral Bailey, Nitty Gritty, the immortal "Serious Time" featuring Admiral Tibet, Ninjaman and Shabba, and the riddim that forever transformed the Jamaican musical landscape, "Under Mi Sleng Teng" with Wayne Smith. Essential stuff. More JA shit to follow.

Sleng Teng
