I'm not sure if you guys have this covered or not.

7" re-issue on Emmanuel Records (EM 1 A / EM 1 B)

Both sides co-produced by Dennis & Niney (& possibly Lee Perry, as both songs have that very special Upsetter sound).


WOLF & LEOPARD

HERE I COME (AKA 'Live Up Roots Children')
riding the 'Breaking Up Is Hard To Do' rhythm.

Right: Both songs were voiced and mixed at the Black Ark by Lee Perry alongside Take A Trip aka In Zion according to David Katz's People Funny Boy.

Don't miss 'Tribulation' (12" 3 In 1 UK) - the great Jah Bop piece is crucial.

Some more food for thought - file under Ossie or Observer?
The next 3 are all credited to Ossie Hibbert on the labels

'Whip Them Jah' (12" Hawkeye UK)

'Children Of Israel' (7" Ossie UK)

'Some Like It Hot' (7" Ossie US)

Absolutely not - but testing / modifying navigation takes time and the page sizes are far to big for most to use comfortably at the mo.... :oops:

xraymusic is a great site and an excellent starting point for sorting some of this out.

Three Meals A Day and Stage Coach were re-pressed on Emmanuel Music crediting Dennis Brown as producer.

The full title for Conqueror = I Am The Conqueror

other D Brown productions missing and on Emmanuel Music 7"

Someone Special
Coming Home Tonight
Open Up - / same as Open Up The Gate?

Wild Goose Chase (7" Observer) with Big Youth

Why Fools (Thompson Sound 12") - stamped on label prod. D Brown - is that fact?

Time 'n' Place (on Emmanuel repress) is a Linval Thompson production!

I'm not sure about Whip Them Jah & Children Of Israel being listed unless you include Ossie Hibbert as producer too.

"I'm not sure abour Whip Them Jah & Children Of Israel being listed unless you include Ossie Hibbert as producer too."

I agree; these tunes, especially "Whip Them Jah," have a very different sound from most Niney-produced DEB sides. "Some Like It Hot" is almost certainly Niney, though, it has the right sound and he produced several other cuts to the rhythm . . .
What about the half that's never been told?
