imo, this label goes from the heights ---

wayne jarret -- bubble up

h.andy -- dancehall style

african roots act 1

all the above, imo, are must have albums, no question.

lovejoys albums are pretty good too...

some of the others are only so so tho.....

I've heard quite a few of the ones you've both recommended; good choices. :) I'll try to check out the ones I haven't heard yet.

Thanks

Mario2,

Agree with you on that Horace Andy and African Roots Act 1 lp. African Roots Act 1 is possibly the best in that series - but I'll tell ya, African Roots Act 5 - despite having more of a modern sound, is darn good imo. Some pretty nice stuff on Act 5... Act 2 is good also.

Bob, May I also suggest Audley Rollen's 'Roll Model' lp - not sure if it's been reissued, but there's some boom-shots on that one.

Inna Various Artists stylee - try and check for a lp called 'Great Jah Jah Jezzreel Showcase.

One Wackies I don't understand - especially when it comes to purchasing popularity is the Maxine Miller Showcase lp - ok, so it's got some strong riddims but her vocals block the fun for me. Solution = I try and drop the needle right when the 'dubs' start rolling. Must say though - 'One Love' and 'Wake Up and Live' by Maxine have great lyrics, but her voice :roll:

i'm partial to the junior delahaye and wayne jarrett albums. the horace andy lps are good, but he has so much good material, it's hard to consider it first rate. average for horace but good on the wackies scale, you could say.

anything by these artists are crucial: anette brissette, jezzreel, itopia, john clarke, milton henry and chosen brothers. also wackies selective showcase vol.1 & 2 are worth checking out. but needless to say pretty much any release on this label is worth having a listen.

More good Wackies :


Jamaica Super Dub Session LP - their most jumpy dub set

Horace Andy - Meets Naggo Morris & Wayne Jarrett - available as 2 10"s or 1 CD - great vocal showcase.

Sugar Minnot - International Herb 10" - wicked tune, heavy heavy production

& offcourse :

Wayne Jarrett - Youthman 12" - true classic

I have to be honest folks and say that I personally do not really rate that polished Wackies sound that is of course very distinct. I like it in small doses.
