Willi Williams has a laid back lazy style which is great when it hits the spot:

I once read an interview with Willie Williams in which he explained how a Jamaican dentist played one of Williams' LPs to calm down his patients.

Spoke to Ray Hurford regarding this and apparently Willi Williams was playing him sounds from the album when he interviewed him in the early 80's. Supposedly a brilliant set. Really looking forward to this.

Still hoping for that unreleased Yabby and Mittoo album as well. Also heard that there was supposed to be a pt. 2 of the Tommy McCook in Dub CD?

Tune Marko!

Sounds like this one which I sold on e-Bay and I've regretted ever since: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w76x7aV78rM

RG: I bought that album and forgot about it. Found myself bidding for it just like two months later and missing the auction. I was a bit disappointed (as always when missing something you want). Did some unrelated sorting in the collection and found the album. One of very few times I've forgotten about something I have. A bittersweet feeling...

I have bought records in the past only to find that I already have them!
I had Star Performer on 12" with the dub. Guess I won't find it again.

Interesting, many of these titles appear on other Willi Williams LP's I assume (hope) that these are alternative versions we have never heard before on this release

His 'Home Sweet Home' & 'Rally' have been available on 12" too, although I don't know if these are the same cuts. I'm still looking forward to this though.

I have a hard time thinking a lot of these songs (such as »Home Sweet Home« the Black Victory version) are going to be included on the set as these have nothing to do with Vivian Jackson. I'm more inclined to think that they are earlier unreleased versions that Willi re-recorded later on when he thought that the previous cuts probably weren't going to be released any time soon.

I'm dying to hear the full set! And please give us some classy packaging to match! It could be the release of the year (or even the decade if it's up to the high quality of Yabby's classic material)!

Yes, same riddim track!
There's a dub version on one of those dodgy Esoldun "King Tubby" CD's:

Always loved that weird little dub track, never made the connection to the Michael Palmer tune before! :D

Agreed! I'm hoping the exact same thing, I don't think I can wait until Sep 30 I may pop

There is another(earlier?) cut to Home Sweet Home, from memory it's a different rhythm but some or all of the lyrics are similar to the later cut. Didn't know of the Yabby connection..
