Joe Gibbs and The Professionals
Big, as in GIGANTICALLY BIG tune here… Joe Gibbs producing, with Sly & Robbie laying it down.
Lion Youth with Sly and Robbie backing – Times so hard a rat a cut bottle, what a dread situation to tackle… a true, a true… Bom bom upon the island…
And hold on for some heavy, heavy dub!
Percussion and bass – Sly & Robbie dubbing it up.
Ranchie McLean is falling in love in this candy-pop love song. It’s got nice backing vocals and is early Sly and Robbie too.
You should have let me know – The Viceroys with Sly and Robbie backing at their finest. Second course is dub goodness too. Awesome!
Were you born a winner too? A positively uplifting tune, with Sly & Robbie laying the foundation, Freddie McGregor leading and awesome backing vocals. We’re all winners here.
To start your New Year’s right, it’s a live Jackie Mittoo tribute by Sly and Robbie, Ernest Ranglin and Tyrone Downie. This is how the masters of reggae do it – grovin’ mellow steady all the way. Recorded live in the summer of 2012 at the Pori Jazz Festival in Finland. Kick back and enjoy!
Another breakup song but this time from Jimmy Riley with Sly & Robbie backing a simple, infectious rhythm, and there’s ultra-smooth background vocals too. The dub version follows – what’s not to love about that?
