2008    Henry Junjo Lawes / Linval Thompson  
Reggae Greensleeves
Tuotteen kuvaus:  
After Wailing Souls, Yellowman and Ranking Dread, here is the new set in the Most Wanted serie that certainly deserves our attention. This time, Greensleeves focuses on Jamaican Eek-A-Mouse. Born Ripton Joseph Hylton in 1957, he’s an artist aside, with a voice as original as his name.
This compilation presents essential tunes digitally re-mastered, produced by Henry Junjo’ Lawes and Linval Thompson between 1980 and 1984. Exclusively killers, backed by The Roots Radics, as ‘Ganja Smuggling’, ‘Anarexol’ on Real Rock riddim and his massive hit ‘Wa-Do-Dem’. Only ‘Wild Like Tiger’ is backed by Hi Times Band. We may think that’s it’s one more best-of compilation ; but actually even those who are familiar with the Mouse’ music can be surprised as the album features non the less than nine tracks in 12’’ version, all appearing for first time on CD.
Between the deep and militant ‘Noah’s Ark’- Eek’s first recording with Junjo Lawes-, ‘Wild Like A Tiger’ followed by its heavy dub, ‘Operation Eradication’ inspired by the death of his friend and deejay Errol Scorcher, or the huge ‘Star, Daily News & Gleaner’, The Mousketeer is on the top. Half way between singing and deejaying style that made his own trademark. A real talented artist, who doesn’t stick to his own « bong bong biddy beng » gimmick. He also delivers serious lyrics as shown with songs such as ‘Terrorists In The City’ or ‘Do You Remember’. A recommended classic reggae compilation.
