Never heard this before neither.... ?

I found this online btw, but no names....

»The killing of Prince Fari on 15 September 1983 was the final element that convinced Roy Cousins to emigrate to Liverpool for good. I went blind with cataracts and I divorce and remarried,’ Cousins explains. Me there work with Fari and them kill him, and me just decide fi call i a day. Them kill him over a dance: they wanted to keep a dance and him give [a promoter] half of the money and owe him half, but [the promoter’s] woman mash up the dance the night, she have a fight, so Fari say him nah pay his other half of the money. Prince [is] one of the man who come through the system the hard way. Is a man who go to prison a Jamaica and certain things, and Jamaica is [about] survival. Edgewater him live, and him go home to water him garden, and the [gunmen] them a watch him, and as soon as him roll up the hose to go in, they go with him. Them say everybody fi lay down on the floor, and I hear him lay down neatly, him don't put up any resistance, but him wife, she know the boy them, and she a put up resistance, and they shoot she first, but she never dead, and they shoot him, kill him like an animal. In the living room you see the blood with his fingermark all over the wall, when a person in agony.’«

thanks for your replies...I've re ordered it from the states so hopefully it won't be from the same batch as the faulty one I received from the UK. :)

Kinda lazy and disappointing concept, just throwing together 4 regular albums.
Could be so much more. Most reggae artists, many from the 80s in particular, has their best work spread over many many releases on different formats.
Checked Discogs, the whole series is the same. Possibly some stuff that has never been released on CD?
Otherwise I really don't see the point...

Soul Rebel You don't see the point of what....
Issuing albums on CD?
Putting 4 albums on 4 CD's for the price of 1 CD ?
Reissuing these particular 4 albums?
Not sure what you are getting at?

Why is it lazy & disappointing to reissue 4 albums on CD's ?I mean it's been happening for decades? Not sure what your point is here?

What does this mean "most reggae artists, many from the 80's in particular, has had their best work spread over many many releases on different formats."
I'd say most musical artists no matter what genre have had their best work spread over many releases on different formats - what is your point?????


I must be missing something here?

This 4 CD box set doesn't claim to be anything else but the 4 albums listed on the back, like you pointed out - the whole series is the same :?

its just lazy reissue crap and probably sounds like it if its true to the VP tradition. Whats wrong with your cd there jj? I think ernie has it if you need a third copy when you get the second probably defective one.

and I doubt very much Josie wales had anything to do with killing prince fari. Where is some source for that misinformation?

re prince far i's killer - haven't heard who did it previously - but don't forget Josey Wales is not only the name of a deejay but also of a western Kingston gang leader

Nonsense. Josey Wales had nothing to do with Far-I's death. It was a dispute with another promoter over gate receipts. Wales' recording career was in full-swing when Far-I was killed in September of 1983. It's just more internet fake news, and people shouldn't make outrageous claims without any substantiation.

You are probably confusing the "Josey Wales" character in Marlon James' book with the DJ Josey Wales. The gang-leader that the Wales character was based on was Jim Brown (whose real name was Chester Coke). Coke took his name from ex-footballer and actor Jim Brown.
There was also a DJ named Jim Brown, who also named himself after the actor. He later changed his stage name to Jim Nastic so he wouldn't be confused with the gangster.

Such is the problem when you conflate fictional and real-life characters in a book, confusion is sure to abound.

that Marlon James' book continues to do a large disservice to Jamaica, to rasta, and to reggae in general. I only made it about a quarter of the way through it before I put it down as the trash it was. Pornographic trash in many ways. Completely superfluous to any culture and a bunch of **** that was largely written to bring attention to the author. Trash and this is just one more example of it and the harm it brings to real life people through the authors ego tripping. I had not even made the connection between Josie wales the DJ and some pseudonym for real life gangster Jim Brown, but I am now sure that is where this rumor came from.

JB why would I want to get another copy from your lying mate EB when he doesn't refund /replace faulty product? :D
BTW what ever happened to that list of my faulty returns you & your 'special' friend were threatening to unleash ? :lol:
I have records of every order & return too, you know & my EB invoices stretch back long before the date ernie came up with.

I'm sure you own plenty of VP products, but being the hypocrite that you are, you'll have no qualms about dissing them here. It would be a completely different story if VP contacted you directly, as you've shown with EB's :lol:


p.s. Your Marlon James review is laughable. How does one book damage decades of music , rasta , Jamaica? Pornographic trash!? You really need to broaden your horizons Jah Bull

There you got a reaction :D :D :D

Josey Wales along with Super Cat and Ninja Man were well known for being bad men but I've never heard that JW killed Prince Fari.

Might sound strange coming from me but I wish that people could share their views without insults and name calling. Particularly as we are on the verge of nuclear war.
