Year 2 Year 12'' Discomix Collection 1987

Year 2 Year 12'' Discomixes 1987. This series came out as a curious collection of mainly back-releases in '87 and precious little was fresh. No Jammys, no Music Works, no Techniques here... Its an eclectic mix of styles and periods, mixing up roots from the late 1970s, pre-digital dancehall and contemporary UK productions. Good listening, but hardly cutting edge at the time. Productions from Augustus Pablo, Tommy Cowan, Augustus Clarke, Willie Lindo and Kangal. 1987 contrasts sharply with the other Year-2-Year volumes in that it dips into the archives (no Jammys, no Tubbys here). Features the Winnie Mandela hit tune by Carlene Davis, interesting in retrospect...
