Information

Originally released on Burke’s Records in Brooklyn and now released under licence directly from Big Youth. ‘Town Without Pity’ finds the Youth is in fine funky form with all of his trademark vocal dexterity employed to the full on this lyrical snapshot of the ‘Big Apple’… New York City.

Perhaps not one of Big Youth’s better known records and so Pressure Sounds are thrilled to release this rarity from one of Jamaica’s greatest ever deejays coming at you now on heavyweight seven inch vinyl with a specially printed picture sleeve.

  • The Cavaliers - Blue SkaThe CavaliersBlue Ska

    Top draw ska from Federal records. Very ably brought to us by Dub Store in Japan. The A side in particular is lovely thumping ska. Slightly less rambunctious than the Studio One offerings of the same period. But really good stuff never the less. Grab these pearls while they are available.

    More unreleased Jammys dub plates. Flat as a pancake tone wise but still has a charm. Rocks on the b side as well.

  • King Long ( Actually Nitty Gritty) - Brown In The RingKing Long ( Actually Nitty Gritty)Brown In The Ring

    Nitty Gritty on a slow digital ting. Very nice and the b side is pretty good too. Like all good singers Nitty Gritty has the ability to transport the most mundane lyrics into meaningful poetry.
