Editors’ Notes

A sensational early dancehall album featuring production from the great Winston Riley, One, Two is notable for containing “Bam Bam”: a nimble, effortlessly catchy riff on the deathless Stalag rhythm and one of the most popular dancehall songs of all time. Nancy borrowed the refrain of "Bam Bam" from Yellowman but added original verses that transformed the song into a powerful statement on feminism, ambition, and the Jamaican music scene. It'd be a shame, however, to remember Sister Nancy for only this song. She was a profoundly gifted DJ who'd honed her technique for years under the tutelage of her older brother, Brigadier Jerry. Her relaxed, sing-song style does recall her brother’s at times, particularly on “Ain’t No Stopping Nancy." But Nancy’s work is distinguished by her sly humor, wordplay, and fondness for extended storytelling, as on “Transport Connection," where she paints a vivid picture of the difficulties of international touring while simultaneously riffing on Nicodemus’ hit “Boneman Connection."
