Title: Rude Boy Scorchers / Various Artists
Label: Kingston Sounds
Product Type: VINYL LP

LP version. The rude boy moniker has it's roots firmly set in the downtown districts of Kingston, Jamaica. Alongside the regular ska/rocksteady sounds coming out of the sound systems, there was an undercurrent theme to some songs that spoke of the struggles of the youth, of their confrontation, arrests, and run-ins with the establishment. Some of these songs praised the rude boys for their stance and style while other songs were more in contempt with the rude boys' attitudes, comings, goings, and violent behavior. For this release, Kingston Sounds have put together a set of tunes that the Jamaican rude boys would have been listening to at the sound systems on the lawns and street corners. The compilation not only includes the more obvious rude boy tunes like "Gunmen Coming To Town", "Dreader Than Dread", and "Moon Hop", but also some of the tunes that made the sound systems rock well into the night. Features Derrick Morgan, Lloydie & The Lovebites, Phyllis Wilson, Delroy Wilson, Rico Rodriguez, Honey Boy Martin, The Heptones, Justin Hinds, Lester Sterling, John Holt, The Ethiopians, and Pat Kelly.
