A testament to the power of a play or two on Jah Shaka sound. Shaka’s followers aspire to owning any tune that the man might have played, what Shaka himself would call “the right type of tune”. The popularity recently of re-presses such as Little Kirk’s Weed Them Out and Chuck Turner’s Trying To Conquer I is directly linked to their airing upon his sound back in the day, that and the fact that they were hardly thick on the ground originally due to the prevailing market for dancehall. Robert Lee’s tune sold squat on it’s original release back in the mid eighties, but Shaka somehow availed himself of a copy and played it, and since then the demand has built up so that the tune sells for mad money whenever it comes up on ebay. What’s it like? It has a similar sound to the early digital and pre-digital tunes, Lee’s lyrics number our elected and non-elected leaders, and the dub is tuff, but it’s undoubtedly the Shaka connection that has resulted in this re-press.
