This week’s album pick is a great 2-LP compilation from King Jammy featuring the likes of Hugh Mundell, Johnny Osbourne, Augustus Pablo, and Lacksley Castell.  While the song selections are great (we even get extended versions of Junior Reid’s “Jailhouse” and Michael Rose w/ Yabby You on “Born Free”), the album’s packaging and vinyl quality is really exceptional, making this double LP one of the best collectors items to appear in the past 10 or so years.  Enjoy!
