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 special pressing for RSD 2017, the first official U.S. pressing in over 40 years, is worth it for the giant fold-out poster alone. Get On Down = champion sound. Recommended.
