As a youth struggling to make it in Kingston’s highly competitive early-'70s music scene, Augustus “Gussie” Clarke made his name by championing up-and-coming deejays like I-Roy and Big Youth. By the late ‘80s he had become a dominant figure on the Jamaican scene, thanks largely to his aggressive championing of digital production techniques. He founded the Music Works label in 1988, intending it to be a strictly digital venture, and it wasn’t long before Gussie’s computerized rhythms began to cause a sensation in Kingston dancehalls. One of his biggest early successes was “Rumours,” a slinky bit of late-night paranoia delivered by Gregory Isaacs. “Rumours” would have an incalculable effect on the development of dancehall in the following decade, and Music Works Classics forefronts its importance by including no fewer than three cuts with the “Rumours” rhythm. The remainder of Music Works Classics is distinguished by equally vital digital productions, including hard-stepping rhymes by ambitious young deejays like Papa San and Shabba Ranks, plus more roots-oriented contributions by veterans like Dennis Brown, The Mighty Diamonds, and others.
this a cool CD but eh review all da songs first before you spend any money
great songs great cd
this is a great cd.nice selection of songs for your reggae collection.
I like to sit on a sofa covered in the blood and flesh of my enemies eating raw root beats as Vaseline is being kindly rubbed all over my catholic body I put on a sound track of goats vigorously mating and call circuit city and cry about how I can't get pregnant by laying outside wrapped in tinfoil.
This song inspired me to be a new person and when I breed children they will thank Lady G
