Ini Kamoze (IMA7) (1984)

Early 80s Taxi Productions can be a bit brittle and, well, early 80s sounding. No such problem on “(He)artist” Ini Kamoze’s début “mini Lp”, wherein Sly ‘n’ Robbie make their robotic, pre-“Sleng Teng” reggae sound plenty meaty, each of the six tracks presented “showcase” style, with the extended portions dubbed up by all manner of mechanistic sound effects.

A 5-star record from the high tenor yout’ man singer, this one found cheap at an outdoor market in Canterbury on Saturday: They call it merther in chez Asbo!
