Format: Audio CD
Well what to say about this one. Firstly the original album is the best example of an MC's work ever (And I include all Hip Hop). It was produced by a young Gussie Clarke who easily related to Big Youth as was from the same neighbourhood and of comparable age. Both greats of the reggae world this was an early effort and perhaps showcases there talents better than any later release. Big Youth's lyrics roll over cracking backing tracks (remastered by Gussie) of reggae legends such as Horace Andy, Gregory Isaacs and Dennis Brown. This Bonus version includes a lot of the original tracks aswell as Big Youth's versions. I cant recommend this CD enough. Even if you have the original this is a must for the bonus material. Thank You Big Youth, thank you Gussie Clarke thank you Trojan. Wow

Big Youth and producer Gussie Clarke, both barely out of their teens, shook the reggae world with this new DJ style: streetwise, tough and half-chanted. Third part of the equation are the great rhythms used i.e Lloyd Parks' Slaving for the title track, KC White's No no no (Concrete jungle) or Horace Andy's Skylarking (The killer). Big Youth would sometimes equal but never surpass this historic debut album in his long career. Remember none of these tracks appear on the 3cd Natty universal dread compilation so buy this one, a true reggae classic

essential listening 14 Sept. 2000
By Sean M. Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Rising out of the shadows of Jamaica's most influenial and beloved dee-jay, U-Roy, Big Youth became arguably the most noticed and popular reggae superstar of the 1970's other than Bob Marley.
Youth (born Augustus Buchanan in 1955)had a following in the early '70's at the Lord Tippertone Hi-FI, a local Kingston sound system, where he was quite a sensation. Like many in the reggae community, Youth was a devout Rastafarian. Unlike all of them (at the time), the brash Youth would reportedly take off his tam and allow his dreadlocks to flow free while he delivered his social and spiritual beliefs on the microphone. Unlike most other dee-jays at the time, Big Youth's messages were chant-like, as opposed to the popular style that U-Roy used- a hybrid of what we would now call rap and jive talking. In these ways, the only 17 year old Big Youth was an original, and it would show on his albums.
After scoring a major hit with the now legendary "S.90 Skank," Youth showed the world the goods on his groundbreaking and very important debut lp, "Screaming Target."
The mood of the lp is that of youthful exuberance, and this can be credited to not only the still-teenaged Youth, but his producer, the 20 year old veteran Augustus Clarke, who had recently produced a major hit for U-Roy. The 2 men looked to the fresh sounds of reggae as their source of inspiration, and Youth's toasting was dep and probing. Dee-jays then, as now, borrow their music from popular songs and then rap over that music, and Big Youth was no different, borrowing from very popular tunes by Dennis Borwn, Gregory Isaacs, Leroy Smart, and others so that his audience would recognize it. The lyrics, message, and delivery was pure Big Youth.
This is Big Youth, and indeed the whole dee-jay movement at its most fresh and cuting edge. The grooves certainly kept the dancehalls moving and rocking and his messgaes made him an icon on the streets of Kingston- combining the roles of a reporter/editor/commentator with that of a Rasta prophet. An amazing effort.
