OH701 A SIDE ROLAND BURELL RIP OFF
OH701 B SIDE BARRY BAILEY GUN SLINGER
First up we have what may be the best and hardest to obtain tune of this catalog. Recorded and mixed at Channel 1 in the mid eighties, and released in NY on the obscure Super Power imprint “Paradise” and in the UK on the C & E imprint, this one is a total monster. Killer synths on the vocal side, and an awesome horn cut by Barry Bailey on the flip.
OH702 A SIDE TONY TUFF HEAT IN THE PLACE
OH702 B SIDE DEADLY HEADLY HOT HOT
Only released on a Barry U 12″ as far as I know, this one probably sank without a trace when it was originally released, but has become a bit of an anthem among fans of Digital dancehall ever since. Wicked rhythm that is crying for more cuts, but alas, the only other one is the horns cut by deadly headly.
OH703 A SIDE KING KONG DOLLARS STRONG
OH703 B SIDE VERSION
The only song King Kong ever recorded for Ossie, this one was on a World Enterprises 12 inch and also features a great driving rhythm with reality lyrics about the importance of having some dollars in your pocket.
OH704 A SIDE JOHNNY OSBOURNE I’M MOVING UP
OH704 B SIDE VERSION
This one sounds like it could have come out on Jammys in the midst of the other Johnny Osbourne hits from that studio, and for good reason. Ossie recorded this tune at Jammys, and the rhythm was played by none other that Steelie & Clevie. This tune was previously released as a Living Room 12 inch in the UK, and an Ossie 12 inch in NY.
OH705 A SIDE LIONEL CRAIG UNDER MI NOSE
OH705 AA SIDE RICKY STEREO JEALOUSY LOVER
Same rhythm as the Johnny Osbourne, here we have Ansel Meditation singing as Lionel Craig, backed with Ricky Stereo’s “Jealousy Lover”, a great dj cut, with an even better intro by Joe Lickshot.
