Steely and Clevie: Play Studio One Vintage [Heartbeat, 1992]
Maybe it's mouldy-fig of me to prefer this to the dancehall Steely & Clevie Present Soundboy Clash. But having listened dutifully through the Studio One reissues, I ought to recognize something here besides "Fatty Fatty," so you can't convince me "vintage" means sure-shot. And with Leroy Sibbles, Alton Ellis, and Marcia Griffiths the big names, the singers are pretty anonymous as well. I say this one flies on rhythm tricks that can't carry any old toast by themselves plus songs that cried out for more juice than Sir Coxsone and his minions had in them.
