triston palma – showcase inna roots radics drum and bass (midnight rock lp 1982) album

Have some serious Jamaican business. Singer Triston Palma (who by the way is twenty years old in the cover picture below, even though he looks more like fourteen) released this showcase in 1982 as his fourth album. The idea behind Jamaican showcase records is that they combine the vocal version of the song and its dub version back-to-back. This only works when both the singer/songs and the band/dub mixer (Roots Radics, King Tubby and Scientist) are worth their while… and in this case, they are!
