Over the last few years, the Soul Jazz label has been churning out a series of excellent vintage reggae compilations. One of the best is "Dancehall 2" which, as the name implies, brings together some great stuff from the early days of dancehall.
For me it was worth the money just for the full length version of Errol Scorcher's magnificent "Roach In De Corner", as my much treasured copy of the original 12" is now almost unplayable. Here it is, with a couple more treats to set you up for the weekend.
"Roach In De Corner" - Errol Scorcher
"Tourist Season" - Barry Brown
"Ina De Bus" - Professor Nuts
From a roach in the corner in 1979 to a rat in the kitchen in 1986. Where did it all go wrong?
