The 30th release on Pressure Sounds gives us an opportunity to showcase the talents of one of Jamaica's premier DJs. Prince Jazzbo was born in Clarendon Jamaica in 1951. Jazzbo recorded and produced for his own labels Ujima, Mr Funny, but first came to prominence with the album 'Natty Passing Through' - for producer Lee Perry.
Jazzbo recorded for Studio One with the collection 'Choice of Version' and was a fixture on the always competive Jamaican sound system scene, his on vinyl clash with I Roy has gone down as one of the legendary clashes in musical folklore.
This collection was instigated by longtime Jazzbo fan, Adrian Sherwood, and we have 17 of his best cuts gathered on 'Mr Funny' - sleevenotes by Noel Hawks and the usual high quality artwork and photography means that we have another heavyweight Pressure Sounds collection. With the album being available on both CD and vinyl we are confident that this album is as strong as any previously released on Pressure Sounds... Standout tracks such as 'Cranky Bine', 'Stealing' and 'Youth in Service' are all on killa rhythms with exciting toasting by Jazzbo.
