When Damian came to London recently he only played one track from his new album, Stony Hill, which is a bit of a shame because pretty much everything on it is a gem. ' Here We Go', a delicious mix up of the old and the new, with its wicked Dennis Brown sample running through the tune. On this one, Damian shows off his lyrical brilliance, and well, shows off generally, stressing his credentials and giving us a boasty career overview. He even licks out at nameless rivals and tells us that 'if you buy the ****, then don't lose the receipt'. Gong, next time you come to London, we'll look forward to hearing the new songs.

the lyrics to "looks are deceiving" are incredible -- enough to make an adopted person (as opposed to aborted person) moved to tears.
i've seen it with my own eyes a couple of times.

As far as I can find from a quick internet search, Yagga yagga either means scruffy - "tuck your shirt in you look yagga yagga", or is a rasta term to express joy. One listen to this 1964 joyful slice of prime-time ska from Delroy 'Bongo Man' Byfield - backed by the Randy's All Stars - and you know he can only mean the latter. I rediscovered this tune on the tube while my ipod was in shuffle mode and now I can't stop playing it. What a beauty of an obscurity.

I suggest, for today, a Barrington Levy tune that maybe is a little bit overlooked:
"Juggling Soldier" - on Live & Learn, produced by Delroy Wright, released in 1987.

Love it!
