tappa zukie: dub em zukie (rare dubs 1976-1979)

2017 repress. Tapper Zukie (born David Sinclair, 1955, Kingston, Jamaica) actually cut his first record in England, after being sent there at age 17. He was breaking from his troublesome past that found him running with the rough crowd on the streets of Kingston. Upon his arrival in sunny Ladbroke Grove, producer Bunny Lee called him up on stage at a local dance to sing a tune. Impressed with the results, fellow producer Larry Lawrence got the young Tappa in the studio the very next day and cut "Jump and Twist." This led to Zukie's acclaimed 1973 debut album, Man Ah Warrior, but he remained somewhat disillusioned and homesick and he returned to Jamaica shortly after recording the LP. Dub Em Zukie (Rare Dubs 1976-1979) collects some great lost treasures and alternate cuts from some of Tappa's better-known releases from the period after his debut.
