Struggle instead of 83 struggle

Postby markp » Sun Jun 04, 2017 5:36 pm

I was looking for the 83 struggle 12" for quite some time but it needs a bit of deep pockets.
By coincendence I saw today that it's present on "Front line presents reggae discomixes" but under the name Struggle.
I guess that's how I missed in the past it could be found here. Any ideas why they would have used a different name?

Well it is a struggle all over the world.

Maybe it came out on the 12" in 83 but really was recorded earlier and the virgin front line compilation used the original title?

Style Scott/dub syndicate redid it as some other year struggle too. 10th anniversary it would seem:

dub syndicate: 93 struggle/cant take it easy (10") (on-u sound)

and then again on the 20th:

dub syndicate: dub plate special: jungle (2 versions)/2003 struggle (2
versions) (10") (on-u sound)

one love

For some reason I've always thought that Mikey Dread's Heavyweight Sound is very very similar to this rhythm. Then there's a Hortense Ellis cut on the rhythm as well which is quite nice.

No clue on why the name differs between the two however.

83 Struggle. Check it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-P-TzaUq1U

Also it's worthwhile to pick up the Cry Tuff reissue of the Far I tune since it has a full dub (which is missing from the 12").
