Incredible news! I wonder if it's from the same sessions such as Armagideon Man/Plague On The Land? Yabby's best rhythms!!! Other than that I only know of that Black Roots 12" with Willi and Yabby. What have they done more together?

Can't wait for this. Next to Junjo I would probably say Yabby You is my favourite producer.

I have a release on cd of something called unification by willi Williams, on his own label I believe. wonder if this is the same as being discussed here?

one love
jb

edit to add: reading closer I guess not. sounds like this unification is a joint project with yabby you, and I do not recall the cd I have mentioning anything like that.

Yes JB that's called 'Unity' on Drum Street label, self production from 1986 iirc.

When I interviewed Willi a couple of years ago, I asked him about the unreleased tracks he did with Yabby, and he hinted that it was "soon come". Glad to see it's finally happening.

Nice ! Waiting for the track list. Also hope it's gonna be released on vinyl as well...i get the impression that Shanachie still think that CDs are the format to go for :cry:

"With a sound often reminiscent of Black Uhuru’s breakthrough “Showcase” album " ....Interesting...I will be curious to hear if this ends up actually being the case or just words...

Not my favourite singer because he has a very lazy style. I'm not sure why they call Horace Andy "Sleepy" and not him?

I can totally understand that, I always assume it's a stonned drawl, he sounds almost asleep at the Mic, but I love his delivery nonetheless

Yes, he sounds like a sleepy version of Don Carlos sometimes.

Horace has narcolepsy, his nick-name isn't based on his vocal style.

yabby you or willi Williams has the lazy style? I guess you mean the latter. I quite like it most times actually, much nicer than someone screaming into the mike I will say
