Forwarding along with another Collar Records banger! Once again featuring the slick production of Leroy "Badness" Pennicott with another forgotten track this time by Steve Becker titled "War. In the early 80's Leroy Pennicott was one of the backbone members for Augustus Pablo's Rockers All-Stars playing rhythm guitar and bass on hundreds of recordings, and even touring extensively around the globe. He was also an instrumental force behind many of the early 80's High Times recordings with Earl Chinna Smith. Always humble and preferring to stay out of the limelight, the multi-skilled Pennicott under the guidance of Pablo and Chinna lead a natural progression to producing. Pennicott first teamed up with long time friend Steve Becker, who go back from youth days in the Greenwich Farm community of Kingston. in 1987 Pennicott asked former band leader Pablo if his first production could be released under the Rockers imprint, to which Pablo happily agreed and helped finance the project. As Pennicott recalls "War" was written as a response and social commentary about the strife and dangers of their surroundings, and being just as relevant, if not more in 2018. Earth shattering rhythm remastered from the sources available now.

CONROY SMITH - Wake Up

Continuing with our Collar Records connection, we present the much anticipated reissue of "Wake Up" by Conroy Smith produced by heavyweight Leroy Pennicott. Smith aka Mr Dangerous is no stranger to the music business, and from the age of 8 was already deejaying for the local sounds. Like many other great reggae musicians, Smith learned his craft from a combination of sound system culture and school. But it was former school friend Nadine Sutherland who urged him to move to Kingston to pursue a singing career, and by the age of 20 he was thrown into the digital revolution of reggae music and quickly started to voice for various producers. During the next five years (from 1985-90) Smith belted out a long line of tunes including this hard-hitting tune on the newly established Collar Records, produced and arranged by Leroy Pennicott. "Wake Up" is a serious reminder that still stands the tests, sounding fresh as ever and remastered from the sources. Out now.
