Does U Roy get any better than Right Time Rockers?

In my opinion it gets a lot better than Right Time Rockers, I like the Virgin Prince Tony stuff a good deal more, Dread In A Babylon for example, the Treasure Isle stuff is better, i guess if you are a Channel One nut then it must be a gift, but frankly it don't get me rockin' to the A Class Champion like i wanna.

The Gadiators definately appear on Natty Rebel,Rasta Ambassador And Jah Son Of Africa,though i'm not sure whether they back him they do appear on vocals as he chats over some of their rhythms.....i'm not sure about the other Prince Tony production Dread ina Babylon tho.

I think this album has been released back in the day too, but under the title "Dubbing To The King Ina Higher Rank". I have a CD-R of that version of the album from Ron, which only contains 12 tracks and different titles, but is the one with all those Channel One (mainly Diamonds) riddims, of which many are also on Vital Dub. Can't remember the label.

reggae experts holy grail "Right time" lp by the diamonds.
i never liked it too much. so i didn't look for this u roy set.

btw: never was a big channel one fan .... prefer randy's sound.

if i may still mention another good u-roy album: "The originator"
together with Nuroy (which must be U Brown)

Some more info on ‘Right Time Rockers’ (extracts from the notes to the Sound System release):

“In early 1976 Roy came to Channel One to record a series of tunes on the hardest, most durable riddims of the rockers era. These recordings were not intended for general release, but were “specials” originally intended for exclusive use in the Jamaican sound systems. Eventually much of the material was released in Jamaica on a very rare limited edition lp. The sessions were recorded in the dark early morning hours and they reveal a smokey, relaxed, informal and very improvisational side of Hugh Roy rarely heard away from his live sound system performances. Roy was obviously in great spirits for these sessions, enjoying the familiar riddims and his own facility with them.

“Among the classic Channel One riddims reworked by Hugh Roy on this album are ‘Right Time’, ‘Why Me Black Brother’, ‘I Need A Roof’, ‘Have Mercy’ and others by the Mighty Diamonds. He also conquers the ‘Ali Baba’ riddims by Jackie Edwards and the ‘Dress Back Wicked’ riddim by Earth & Stone.

“Hugh Roy and Sound System would like to thank Leroy Jodie Pearson for the loan of his rare originals”
