I see that Jammy has a tasty artist line up on the classic Sleng Teng which is now re-released. Looks wicked still, check out the line up on oj36 recs.

Sleng Teng's 20th birthday due in a couple of weeks time!
In the new year of 1985 it was exactly twenty years from date when Don Drummond was arrested and the Skatalites disbanded. I wonder what historically remarkable things will happen in the next weeks time.

Never did like Sleng Teng myself...and thought for a long time that I just didn't like digi reggae at all. Bought a (very) cheap copy of the Wayne Smith Sleng Teng album along with King Jammy's Computerised Dub on Greensleeves however and thought it was wicked...all except for Sleng Teng itself. Turns out its just that rhythm/tune I don't like...
