Lloyd Parks x Gregory Isaacs

Strictly heavyweight riddims that have been in constant rotation on hi-fi for years. The first is Lloyd Parks’ “Stars” 7″ recorded for Randy’s in 1972. It’s a stellar rendition of Cornell Campbell & The Eternals song from Studio One. Here the tune gets extended with Dennis Alcapone serving up the deejay version.

The second offering is Gregory Isaacs “Mr. Know It All” 12″ recorded for D.E.B. Music in 1978. The cut is an extension of his Mr. Isaacs sessions where Ossie Hibbert was at the controls. The flipside showcases the dub treatment by Ossie Hibbert & The Revolutionaries titled “War of the Stars”. Mighty vibes!
