Incredible selections from Coxsone start to finish.. Back to back mad Tubbies mixes. Would love to have a tracklisting
I have this session, it's mislabelled Coxsone Vs. Shaka 1983...Mr Babylon Man is definitely played here, although it's the cut linked to in the original post (and the only one I've ever heard)...
This thread has cleared up a mystery for me as the recording is all Coxsone playing someone other than Shaka. Turns out it was Highteous, who as you rightly stated gets shouted down by Fetsus and from then on tempers soar. Then at 45 mins the recording cuts to a much later H.I.M Birthday session with Shaka running a hard steppers dub. Shaka comes on the mic saying the management wants the session has to end, but if it were up to him he would play until midday! Ends with a killer Zebulon dub, Roger Robin special, and Rasta Serenade.
