Fire up the chalice for this massive repress! U-Roy, “The Originator”, was the first “deejay” in reggae music, pioneering a proto-rap style of chatting over riddims that became known as “toasting”, laying the framework for dancehall, and later, hip-hop. Dread In A Babylon, his third full-length album, has become a digger favorite in part for its iconic sleeve depicting U-Roy exhaling an epic cloud of chalice smoke, but also for proto-dancehall classics "Chalice In The Palace", "Runaway Girl" and "Trench Town Rock". This is the first official U.S. pressing in over 40 years; Get On Down = champion sound. Recommended.
