The whole album isn't perfect like say Heart of the Congos or Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, but it has those certain tracks that get a party started. What is striking to me is that this album really defines that moment of transition between the old world of acoustic instruments and the latter electronic scene that we are suffering now.
With that being said, the electronic tracks on this slab are incredible. Pumpkin Belly is the definitive Sleng Teng song, which makes me scratch my scalp wondering why it took on the former title. The track I drop the needle on is usually Shirley Jones, as it reminds me of the vocal stylings of Bradley Nowell and it probably influenced him deeply. Very nice.

Tenor Saw He recorded one album while he was alive and it immortalised him in the pages of reggae history. Tenor saw burst onto the scene via Sugar Minnotts youth promotions label with the greatest of all dancehall songs; Ring the alarm.

Dancehall Lovers Rock About Tenor Saw While digital rhythms were just beginning to take over in the early '80s, Tenor Saw went and released massive Dancehall hit "Ring the Alarm" over a smooth, decidedly un-digital, Dub-like groove recorded by organist Ansel Collins. Reggae Hits Gold Edition, Vol. King Jammy's: Selector's Choice Vol. King Jammy. With all the skill of earlier dancehall stars like Barrington Levy, Saw used the updated digital versions of familiar riddims to become a dancehall phenomenon in a very short period of time.
His hypnotic vocals floated over digital tracks, helping to deliver dancehall into the modern era. Featuring the gorgeous 'Your House', arguably one of the greatest reggae love songs ever. This is an album that can be played from start to finish, over and over, and the listener will never get tired of it. While reggae's influence upon hip-hop was made known at the time with MCs like KRS-One, no one was truly blending the two styles like Shinehead.
This album is more reggae than anything and that's why I included it here.
