MP3 Podcast: Henry 'Junjo' Lawes: Rub A Dub Style!


WWW, September 2007 - Six out of the ten tracks in this great 30 minutes non-stop mix contain the vocal works of Yellowman. Still, the podcast isn't credited to this legendary Reggae Toaster who made his name during the 1980's Rub a Dub era.

what's up with that?

Reggae historians will tell you, that Henry 'Junjo' Lawes was the predominant producer of Jamaican Rub a Dub Reggae in the early 1980's. His name is on just too many albums and single releases to mention, and some even credit him with the founding of this early form of Dancehall back in 1979.

Junjo launched singers like Barrington Levy, made extensive use of top notch Dub engineer the Scientist, whose legendary series on the Greensleeves label is considered among the top of the all-time Dub releases.

In this Podcast, the focus is mainly on one of that other legend of Rub a Dub style: Yellowman. All tracks are Junjo productions, though. Showing how the producer worked with Harmony Groups (Wailing Souls), DJ's (Michigan & Smiley) and Singers (Barrington Levy).
