THE BIGGEST REGGAE ONE DROP ANTHEMS 2015!

THE BIGGEST REGGAE
ONE DROP ANTHEMS
2015

“…you have presented the worldwide reggae fraternity with a highly impressive collection of magnificent roots reggae songs and rhythms.”
 – David Rodigan MBE


Available on CD, Vinyl & Digital Download
Global Release Date: 23 October 2015
CD Catalog #: VPGS70112; LP Catalog #: VPGS70111



After a four year hiatus, Greensleeves resurrects the popular compilation series The Biggest One Drop Anthems. This year's approach is a little different.  The 13-track-set is produced solely by Jamaica's legendary music producer, Clive Hunt.
Clive Hunt has produced roots reggae classics with some of Jamaica’s finest artists including The Abyssinians, Peter Tosh, The Wailers and Jimmy Cliff.  Clive Hunt also produced international hits for Stevie Wonder, the Rolling Stones and Grace Jones.
VP Records matched Clive Hunt with selected foundation and new roots artists to forge The Biggest One Drop Anthems 2015.  The album features new exclusive tracks from Jah 9, Iba Mahr, Jah Vinci, Raging Fyah, Richie Spice, Randy Valentine and Yahsha.
The series also features three inspired cover versions:  Luciano's adaptation of Rod Taylor's His Imperial Majesty; Ikaya's take on the Steel Pulse anthem Worth His Weight in Gold (Rally Round) and Etana's Stepping Out of Babylon, originally recorded by Marcia Griffiths.
Musicians on the project include Drummers Kirk Bennett and Anthony Watson, guitarists Lamont 'Monty' Savory and Winston 'Bopee' Bowen, bassists Aeion Hoilett and Danny 'Axeman' Thompson and keyboardists Robbie Lyn and Franklin Waul.
The album artwork was created by renowned graphic artist, Tony McDermott.

Clarks in Jamaica out now!


CLARKS IN JAMAICA

Various Artists


Available on CD, Vinyl & Digital Download
Global Release Date: 16 October 2015
CD Catalog # VP70342 / Vinyl Catalog # VPGS70341



“From ever since, Clarks is a number one shoe inna Jamaica. Not just now, I’m talking from the Fifties come right up… Clarks stand the test of time inna Jamaica. All the other shoes come and bow right down at Clarks’ foot.”

- Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee

"Hold up your foot and show your Clarks booty, show crowd of people that you're trash and ready"


- Little John





Showcasing classics from the golden age of dancehall music that celebrate Jamaica's love affair with the iconic English footwear brand.
Greensleeves, in conjunction with One Love Books, is proud to present ‘Clarks in Jamaica’ the album tie-in with Al Fingers’ critically acclaimed book of the same name which chronicles the celebrated status of Clarks shoes in Jamaica.
Al, who compiled the CD and recently gave a talk on the subject at the V&A says, “Growing up in England I've always been fascinated by the Jamaican love of Clarks shoes and the way the brand is referenced within reggae and dancehall music.  Vybz Kartel’s tune ‘Clarks’ brought the phenomenon to many people’s attention in 2010, but the relationship goes back a lot longer, and I wanted to bring attention to that, highlighting the work of artists such as Dillinger and Little John who sang about Clarks many years before.”
