Since the seminal 1968 track "Rightful Ruler" (produced by Lee Perry with backup vocals by Peter Tosh) introduced U-Roy to the world, reggae has never been the same. Certainly among the first artists to incorporate chatting or chanting into the reggae aesthetic, U-Roy and a handful of others inadvertently gave birth to what is now known as dancehall, arguably the most economically successful style of reggae.
VERSION OF WISDOM is a set of classic '70s material that features U-Roy at his finest--bellowing, screaming, and tossing seemingly random utterances into the musical pot. The set compiles a number of sides U-Roy cut for Duke Reid's Treasure Isle label. Highlights include "Ace From Outer Space" and the song that helped catapult him into stardom, "Wear You to the Ball." Other standout cuts include "Everybody Bawling" and the hilarious and suggestive "What is Catty?" This is a definitive U-Roy collection with the master toasting over some of the most popular rhythms of the mid-'70s. A must-have for anyone looking to build a respectable reggae collection.
