a.k.a. Strictly Rockers
Shockout all nice & decent people.
Once again, your sound selector for this evening is the boy Flair with another super duper Strictly Rock.
This is part II & we all about the rockers.
A fine selection of tracks from a fine selection of artists.
Once again, this is large so it comes in two parts.
As usual, the Strictly Biz seal of approval means that this whole ish is lovely, but tracks to look for include -
The legendary Big Youth has plenty of tracks with 'Rock' in the title, but I went for the smooth 'Tippertong Rock'.
General Trees gives us a total headnodder with 'Walking Rocking'
Jacob Miller is lovely as he always was with 'Keep On Knocking', then at 2:50 the wicked U Brown comes in.
Jah Walton deserves a mention, firstly because his track here is simply titled 'Rock', secondly because it is dope. "Mi love mi cheese & biscuit"
'Live Rocket' by John Wayne is superb, as is everything else he recorded, a banger on a version of the Real Rock riddim.
Johnny Osbourne delivers a classic with 'Rock & Come On Ya', but things really kick off at four minutes in when the amazing Papa Tullo (a.k.a. Tullo T) joins us. Special stuff.
'Rock Steady Party' by Leroy Sibbles is another lovely joint, then deejay legend Nicodemus comes in with his Bonanza rhymes.
Lone Ranger's 'Sat Upon The Rock' is straight up dope, on the Cherry Oh Baby riddim, Ranger is without doubt one of the greatest of all time. Buy as much of his stuff you can find, trust me.
'Jubie Rock' is a another quality Michael Palmer track, lovely singer.
Pampidoo is as crazed as ever on the bouncy 'DJ With The Rock Stone Voice', he must get through a lot of strepsils !
A favourite of our own DJ Friendly, Ranking Dread gives us the fat 'Natty On The Rock', "A Too Dready".
Ranking Trevor makes two appearances here, firstly under the name Ranking Superstar with 'Lovers Rock', then with the classic 'Savalamar Rock'.
Another Deejay with legendary status, the incredible Ranking Toyan rocks it on 'Rock It Up'.
Shabba Ranks shouts out his musical friends on the massive digi banger 'Get Up Stand Up & Rock' on the Bye Bye Love riddim.
'Pegion Rock' by Sister Nancy is very nice indeed, unlike the spelling. Shout out to my girl Li-Li on this one.
The greatly missed Sugar Minott is here with the gigantic 'Dread A Me Idrin'.
Trinity follows on from Xanadu & Sweet Lady (on the first volume of Strictly rock) with the delightful 'Rockers Delight'.
Finally the fantastic Yellowman drops the gigantic 'Natty Sat Upon The Rock' over the same riddim as his classic 'Nobody Move'.
