Any reggae fans here

yeah digital has become fashionable in recent years... in places like france and germany in particular... loads of re-issues and inflated prices on the second hand market... i got into it in the late 80's - early 90's when most kids my age were into hardcore "you know the score"... but i was more into "whoa hey" and would go crate digging round soho... picking up second hand vinyl...

on the subject of nicodemus... nicodemus was supercats "brethen" and one version of the events surrounding nitty grittys shooting was that nicodemus owed gritty money and gritty was out to "collect"... gritty pulled a gun but "the cat" became involved in defense of demus... gritty's gun jammed and cat blew his head off...

super cat gained notoriety as bad man and became perhaps the biggest "DJ" of all time having legendary clashes with ninja man who famously "killed" him with a verse referencing cats coke habit... the footage of that is worth looking up on you tube... super cat  disappeared off the scene until recently... he looks a bit rough and seems to have slowed down a bit... but still a huge character...

anyway... one from super cat...







ive got all these posts on vinyl... very proud of my reggae vinyl...

Some Sunday Roots. One of my favourite Yabby You tracks and a superb Lee Perry dub. The only dub he did for Yabby apparently but it's also down as one of my all time fav dubs. Perry at his peak. Basically I really like it, both cuts!
