Tappa Zukie Black Ark

Postby curryman » Fri Sep 20, 2013 9:42 am

Hello

Can anyone advise me on works made by Tappa Zukie in Black Ark in the mid 1970's?

I know he cut Prince Allah "Bosrah" there as well as some tunes with Knowledge, such as Centry and Make Faith, as well as What's Yours.

But does anyone know what else he cut there, either by himself, Knowledge, or anyone else?

I have a tune called Bad More Than That by Musical Intimidators that I would like to discover more about and anything else he did really, as he is my favourite MC and a brilliant producer.

thanks in advance

Peace.

I think 'Bad More Than That' is a Channel One recording? As I have mentioned in the past, it sounds to me like the same horrible (imo) singer as 'Putto - Dear Jah' ... although yes, the riddim & Jammy(?) mix is great.. (Apologies for the question marks, they make me feel better in case I'm wrong about something :lol: )

Thanks for that. I don't mind the vocal on Bad More Than That, though its not one of my immediate favourites

I prefer the Junior Ross & The Spears version of "Bad More Than That"

Junior Ross & The Spears


I haven't heard that, but would love to.

Do you know if he recorded them in Black Ark?

i think that putto is a great singer :) i think that bad more than that is a unreleased version that putto version rocks more than the junior ross version its a shame it was never released

Are there really 2 versions of Bad More Than That ?

The repress it titled as Jr. Ross & The Spear but doesn't sound anything like them

& the 12" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V84oJHZgMWg

'Horrible' may have been a bit harsh... He sounds ok up until the 'Jah...' part which just sounds wrong to my ears...
and here is 'putto - dear jah' anyway for comparison http://www.lionvibes.co.uk/product.php?sku=41712

and now back to black ark...
