Info :
The Lone Ranger is one of Jamaica's most influential early dancehall DJs. He was twice voted N°1 deejay on the island, in 1979 and 1980. He helped pioneer a newly rhythmic, on-the-beat rhyming style that led DJ toasting into the modern age, and punctuated his lyrics with bizarre exclamations and sound effects ("bim" and "ribbit" were his favorites) that made him perhaps the most imaginative stylist of his time. Without Lone Ranger, no Yellowman, no Shabba Ranks, no Sean Paul...
Thanks to the incredible production skills of French dubmeister Grant Phabao, who crafted for him a splendid album last year ("Kulchaklash" / to be pronounced "Culture Clash"), The Lone Ranger is now back on the charts, with rub-a-dub partner Carlton Livingston and their cover of Dandy Livingston's hit "(A Message To You) Rudie". This new single is making waves all over the irie globe on a strictly limited edition 12 inch (500 copies only!), issued on T.I.M.E.C./The Pusher in Europe (with both extended and dub remixes), and on an already out-of-print 7 inch, issued on Silver Bullet in Jamaica. This marvelous slice of pure jamaican spice is a winning crowd-pleaser sure to hit the spot every time, we couldn't let it out of this exclusive mix of oldies, rarities & classics, so... enjoy!

The Lone Ranger was the number one deejay in Jamaica at the end of the 70's and the beginning of the 90's. This mix presents his latest single (a perfect cover of "Message To You Rudie"), along with a "best-of" selection of some of his legendary tracks from Studio One & Thrillseekers labels mostly.

We've reached 1985 and most of music is in a really bad shape. Music marketing is starting to morph thanks to the Grateful Dead who re-invented the direct-to-fan business the previous year, but music production is still hitting an unsurpassed low, almost everywhere.

1984 is the tipping point, the limit before things start to go really sideways for a few years in music… Out of the 12 tracks we picked here, two were already released in 1982 on small labels or pressings, and one was recorded live in Japan in 1983, so we're cheating a little bit. But the point is...
