Trinity – Shanty Town Determination 1976-78

This long unavailable set from Trinity, born Wade Brammer, is one of the most coherent statements ever committed to wax by any Jamaican deejay. Produced by roots master Yabby You, the album made a brief appearance in 1977 before disappearing completely. With Trinity riding some of Yabby’s deepest roots rhythms and all cuts mixed at King Tubby’s, this is simply essential.

“My name is Trinity, passin through the community, in any vicinity. Strictly dancehall me a come from, the steel horn business – Tubby’s, Tippertone, El Paso. Right now, me come from the ghetto, yuh hear me man?”
