Eek-A-Mouse - "Wa Do DEM"
Bought this in 1982, loved it, lost it, but re-purchased it recently due to a re-ignition of my interest in reggae. This was his 2nd album, and as far as i can remember, by far his finest. This is an essential record for those developing a taste for reggae (and don't know where to begin), as it is stone cold class from end to end. His original/unique style makes for some directly emotional performances, backed up rock solid dubwise. This edition contains a few extra tracks of comparitive standard. If at all possible to select the best songs, I would recommend the title track, the mighty "Ganja Smuggling" and "Lonesome Journey". Start here, and if you like this medium (toasting, dj/singjay style), explore some Big Youth, Lone Ranger, U-Roy, Dr Alimantado and Yellowman and see where it takes you.
