Colombia Colly Review

by John Dougan

Jah Lion (aka Jah Lloyd) was one of the deejays that Lee "Scratch" Perry used as a vocalist in the late '70s, and this is an excellent early effort of dub mixes that show the beginnings of Perry's surrealistic, idiosyncratic approach to remixing. The record is a tad on the obscure side and only reggae fanatics might recognize the vocal snippets, but too much arcane information is not what makes this record wonderful, it's Perry's extraordinary production talent. Extra points for covering Peggy Lee's "Fever" wid de accent on de riddims.
