'Pitchfork' review of the Yabby You 'Dread Prophesy'

http://pitchfork.com/thepitch/680-the-dread-prophecy-of-yabby-you/

The searing work on Dread Prophecy: The Strange and Wonderful Story of Yabby You showcases an artist who deserves recognition on par with Bob Marley, Augustus Pablo or Burning Spear and hopefully elevates his legacy from its outsider status.

Both were released on one of Yabby You labels with Vivian Jackson production credits. How Long sounds like a VJ production to my ears (also not familiar with this riddim from anywhere else). Rock Man Soul is definitely on a Striker Lee produced riddim.

Well if they released this album on Triple vinyl like the blood and fire Jesus Dread boxset am sure it would sell for more then the bloodandfire Jesus Dread boxset in a few years time.

Maybe somebody can email Shanchanie and let them know and try get a triple vinyl boxset release or another producer like big bad Digikiller can get involved and buy rights to releases on triple vinyl boxset.

Any suggestions ???

i think i said this on another forum and not here, but we (DKR) helped w/ this project (not gloating - i am really humbled and thankful to be able to work on such an endeavor) and from the start of that i asked about releasing it on vinyl...no disrespect to Shanachie, as they invested a lot of time and money into this project and released it into a market with pitiful CD sales, so for now they would like to concentrate on letting the CD flourish, so no vinyl release at the moment. if it becomes a reality, DKR is at the front of the line, at least for a vinyl issue of the "rarities" disc, if not the whole thing.

all that said, i urge anyone who cares about keeping the release of vintage jamaican music on ANY physical format alive, to buy this CD set. worth it for a handful of tracks on the "rarities" disc and the photos inside the booklet alone, nevermind the dozens of Yabby classics on the other disc that any self respecting reggae fan must own.

dun talk. :lol:

The Prophets’ chant of “Be-you, yabby-yabby-you” gave Jackson another nickname, “Yabby You,” which he used for the rest of his career. In many ways, I see this song as a reggae equivalent to “Good Vibrations” by the Beach Boys. Listen to the way the voices are layered. No other Jamaican artist was doing anything even remotely similar at the time. Nor have any since. --- Dangerousminds Magazine

The attention this release garner is really unprecedented in these times. Compare the click-counter on this topic to anything else ... is a gauge that something 'Strange & Wonderful' agwan with the man Yabby You.

I don't think so...probably just a set of mp3 files, 2000s style.
