A fantastic classic early dee jay set from the Jamaican scene – a record that not only showcase the burgeoning talents of the young Dennis Alcapone
, but also features a fair bit of duets with Lizzy
(Delroy Petgrave) – all at a level that really helps move the style forward! At times, there's plenty of echoes of older rocksteady soul in the rhythms, but the presentation is definitely more 70s overall – especially in the edge that Dennis
brings to his vocals, which reflect some of the changing times on the scene. Titles include "DJ's Choice", "The Funky Tang", "Picture On The Wall", "Engine Engine Number Nine", and "Wake Up Jamaica" by Dennis Alcapone
– plus "Cry Tough", "The Right Song", and "Ba Ba Ri Ba Skank" by Lizzy
. CD also features 16 more bonus tracks, 5 of which are new to CD – tracks by Dennis
, and others by Hopeton Lewis, Tommy McCook, Earl Lindo, and The Now Generation.
