JAH SHAKA help request

Postby pampasjudas » Mon Jan 06, 2014 11:39 pm

hello!

here i am again, the guy who's always looking for help and knowledge! :wink:
i'm 100% new to Jah Shaka and his related discography. i know this must sound crazy to most of you, but please bear with me!

i have been checking some tunes (mostly from albums) on the web, and just LOVED what i heard (stuff from Message From Africa and from the Vivian Jones/Jah Works LP).
i would really appreciate some tips about where to start in order to build my personal Shaka discography, so any help will be extremely welcome here.

thank you all!!!!!!!!

one love,
- pampas

Euh...where to start? Asking for some good Shaka music is a bit like asking for "some nice jazz music" :wink:
He has his own label JahShakaMusic, and published loads of music there recorded by himself and in collaboration with loads of artists.
His son Young Warrior has recently joined his legacy and now releases music as well.

Maybe give you a quick overview of the big killers that are still easily available.

- 12 inches on JahShaka Music:
Revelation 18 (Jah Shaka)
Babylon (Johnny Clarke)
Rosie (Johnny Clarke)
Also, check the 7" Can't hurt Jah Children by Johnny Clarke and the LP Rasta International - but really, just check everything Shaka ever recorded with Johnny Clarke. All wicked killers.
Just Infatuation (Gregory Isaacs)
Red Eyes (Vivian Jones)
Jah Jah Way (Sis Nyah)
Warriors (Junior Brown)
Africa (Horace Andy)
Happiness (Bim Sherman)
Psalms 61 (Rasheda)

- LP's:
Twinkle Brothers meets Jah Shaka - Rasta Surface
Twinkle Brothers meets Jah Shaka ‎– The Right Way
Jah Shaka All Stars - Message from Africa
Jah Shaka-Kings Music
Max Romeo - Fari Captain of my ship
Willie Williams-See Me
Roger Robin-I see Jah
Dread & Fred- Iron Works

-7":
Lexxy & Young Warrior - Lead me to the Rock
Sister Beloved- Freedom of the Land
Rockaway-Stop your Fighting
....

You'll probably be busy with that for a while :wink: and you'll find the other good things as well...

thank you, JJ and **ROOTS**!
ready to devote the whole afternoon and evening to Shaka-music research, here!
any suggestion about where to get a comprehensive selection of his stuff on the web? i would like to get the best possible deal in terms of price and availability (i live in Spain). so far, the best option i found is Dub Vendor.

My pick of Shaka's 12's is African Princess Jah Children Cry, and the dubs on Sister Audrey English Girl, proper mix compared to a lot of the 12's released, as Shaka releases go. You got a lot of music to go with in the lists above too, enjoy!

depends on your format pampas. emusic have put up a load of Jah Shaka releases recently and they are only 42p a track, so you could do some serious research that way :)
