Around 1980, London-based Bullwackies fan Ed Brennan circulated amongst his friends a homemade cassette of his own favourite Wackies productions. In turn, Lloyd Barnes made his own selection from this Pirate's Choice - adding several debut cuts, but retaining Ed's title and much of his artwork (omitting the barcode which he had snipped from a can of drink!). Like the Coxsone re-appropriation, this makes for a superlative compilation.
Lloyd Barnes trumps Ed Brennan throughout, kicking off with a killer one-off rhythm from the vaults, featuring Bobby Sarkie of The Immortals, before teaming Joy Card's Black Girl (originally on 12") with a previously unreleased singjay version by Barrington Spence. Other highlights include Clive Hunt's reading of Wayne Jarrett's Darling Your Eyes, Joe 'No Equal Rights In A Babylon' Auxumite's interpretation of New Sensation (by Wackies songwriting regular Andrew McCalla), and Sugar Minott singing beautifully over an exclusive horns
mix of his Sometime Girl 12". 'From over 150 singles and 20 albums these 10 extracts are showing you the quality and range of Jah Reggae music', as the cover puts it.
Another master-class from Bullwackies country.
"In the North Bronx, straight up White Plains Road, as far as you can go, past Tad's, and Brad's, and Moodies - as far uptown as you can go, is City Lane. This is Bullwackies country. From over 150 singles and 20 albums these 10 extracts are showing you the quality and range of Jah Reggae music."
