Your Enemies Are Everywhere

Check out "Your Enemies Are Everywhere" from Maxine Miller's - Complete Lovers album. The album is entirely produced by King Jammy's and it sounds like it's from the late 80s/early 90s. "Your Enemies..." is on a riddim with similar vibes to that of "Rumours." I don't believe it was released on vinyl, but defintely give this tune a listen because it is KILLER.

When I Ask For A Raise,You Look @ Me Like I'm Your Slave

"Slave Driver" (EVA 7", '89)
The original "Slave Driver"by Hubert Francis was initially released on Tycoon 7." The EVA 7" is the digital update by Hubert under the moniker Robo Cop (FZ Francis). The production is top notch and clean. Overall a well produced tune. It's one of those tunes with a message that will be relevant throughout time in the world of the have and have nots. listen

Be Careful of The System or You Will Be A Victim

"A So The System Work" (Triumphant, 7", '85)
Soulful tune by Ruddy Simbal giving warning to those falling into the grasps of the system (workforce?). It's very reminiscent of Hubert Francis - Slave Driver , as in working hard for small pay and receiving "praise with no raise." Tight drum and bass riddim track. "A so the system work, if you nah check it out, you bound to get a jerk." listen

Anytime We Come A Pure Live Stock

"Late Night Attack" (10 Roosevelt Ave, 7",'87)
Wicked tune by Vichous Irie detailing a late night ambush by gunmen while riding around town in a Honda Civic with his girlfriend (who "screams like a damn parakeet"). Shares the same killer riddim as Sister China - Jam The Calypso, Flourgon - Come Mek We Dweet (non harry j prod. 12"), Foxie - Muscular Man & Irie Fernandez - So Wonderful. listen

Look Pon Di Sweet & Lovely Girls Jah Provide Fi We

"Aids Body" (FlashIT, 7",1987)
Obscure cuss cuss killer by Joseph McCalla. One of the many reggae tunes with the AIDS theme that were released during the 80's. 50's hollywood movie star Rock Hudson gets a mention here, "lay down pon me bed with mi radio pon me head, hear a newsflash seh Rock Hudson dead (aids)." Unfavorable Ruck Hudson lines pop up in some other songs also. listen
