VA - Old Time DJ Come Back ... Again!

From the vaults of RAS records come this solid roundup of classic reggae DJ sides. At the zenith of his fame, producer and toaster Tapper Zukie cut these tracks on both veteran and relatively new mic masters.

Spanning the roots reggae era and early dancehall days, the likes of U-Roy, Big Youth, Dennis Alcapone, Dillinger, and Prince Jazzbo made their musical trade respectable while the work of vocal soloists and groups dominated the charts. Along the way, their innovations would have a great influence on both the course of reggae music and once seemingly distant orbits as hip-hop.

This collection provides 15 prime examples of their art, including cuts by both the aforementioned toasters and other expert chatters like U-Brown, Brigadier Jerry, Trinity, and Jah Stitch. A fine primer for Jamaican DJ newcomers.
