Jah Jah Higher Than I is indeed a Niney production & was released on Observer 12" (backed by Unbelievers from the same artist), no relation to Yabby You & doesn't sound like anyone from the Prophets as far as i can tell. Maybe just mistitled by mp3 dubplate traders ?

I think Mr. Stone was also in Rockstone/Rock Tone Band which recorded few other tunes for Niney.

This is out Feb 17, and here's the tracklist:

http://www.propermusic.com/product-deta ... You-184409

How does this stack up against people's expectations? I figure that with 10 unreleased cuts and 30 never-before-on-cd, to someone like me (who's only got the B&F and Pressure Sounds Yabby releases) this will probably contain a lot of treasure.

"Jah Mercies" on disc 2 :D . It's important for ALL these tunes to be CURRENT circulation, regardless of rareness. Jesus Dread has been unavailable for a decade, so this comes at just the right time.

IMHO the 28-page booklet alone is priceless. I know Randall dug deep to find some of the unreleased material as some of the tracks were sourced from master tapes help by Peacemaker. Also, Randall sought out very rare vinyl cuts and dubplates also. It will be great. Just wish there was a vinyl release.

Nuff crying for vinyl ... the word is Shanchie will love to release the vinyl off 'Dread Prophesy' but first they must recoup because they go way out on limb to make this 'Dread Prophesy' fly & they first need break even ... If the massive will wake up and support Shanachie's effort then they will release vinyl ... they not asking for crowd-funding in advance ... they simply asking for those who know to spread the word and support

'Dread Prophesy' is about itinuing Yabby's very unique message: and is about preserving the historical record of Yabby's work & its about support Yabby's surviving family.

For the price of: a bag a dis - a bottle a dat - or a couple junk food meals ... the money will instead purchase 'Dread Prophesy' ... one thing will mash you down and another thing will lift you up. One previously unreleased song 'Mercy & Truth' ... is alone worth the price ... song like that will carry a 1 thru anything this world throw at you.

I'm looking forward to picking this up regardless of format, the great man and his family should be supported for the legacy he has left behind. Big respect to Shanachie for getting this out there, looks like a labour of love. Seems like they favour quality over quantity in terms of releases. I adore the Pablo box set they released a few years ago, beautiful music beautifully presented.

I don't know if it was mentioned before, there's a very interesting book by Randall Grass, "Great Spirits : Portraits Of Life-Changing World Music Artists", featuring chapters on Augustus Pablo and Yabby You among others:

But where can we find a tracklist with the actual artists credited rather than just Yabby You?

Received an advance copy today. EPIC & ICONIC ... Congrats to Randall Grass & Shanachie for a beautiful, powerful and masterful collection. The amount of love, time & effort that went into this project is obvious. It packages a time from the 'Golden Age of Roots Reggae' that was and will never be again. IMO no reggae collection is complete without this audio. artistic and printed-word storytelling masterpiece. Who knows how long it will be available. Suggest one & all get it while the gettings good.

Shanachie you again proved you earned your name on this one

Shanachie ... from the Gaelic "seanchaidhe" - traditional storyteller and keeper of the history
