JAH WOOSH - THE BEST OF
Sometimes, you find the best music somewhere in the dusty corners of a record shop. Or in a virtual dusty corner of a website. 

Sometimes, the best material is way back in the popularity polls. Or at the download charts of a legal mp3 website.

Sometimes, the best vocalists are the least known. And here is where Jah Woosh (Neville Breckford) enters. 

He's quite an extraordinary man. During the 1970's, he was one of the first Toasters ("Reggae Rappers") to gain popularity in the UK. Over there, his music was released on albums rather than singles which was kind of special, too.

It was a time wherein there was lot's of development going on, as King Tubby and others cultivated the art of DUB engineering and the DJ's created their own kind of discipline, too.

Drum and basslines, combined with heavy effects and heartical chanting became the dominant sound in the dance and arguably that has continued until this very day.

The Best Of JAH Woosh contains 24 tracks from that era. The music is hard: echo's and reverbs galore as DJ's chanted over Reggae music heavily mixed in DUB Style. 

I Roy, Tappa Zukie, Jah Stitch and many others were dominating the Jamaican dancehalls as they developed what would later become the inspiration for a style called "Rap". 

And Jah Woosh was there, too. His voice, strong like iron,  could ride the heaviest Roots riddims. 

So no, there is not really any reason why Jah Woosh is not as known as let's say Tappa Zukie or Big Youth. 

The music on this album will convince you of that. And the price is no excuse not to get it.
