Picture of cover for Trinity - Shanty Town Determination

Shanty Town Determination

'My name is Trinity, Passin. through the community, in any vicinity. Strictly dancehall me a come from, the steel horn business - Tubby.s, Tippertone, El Paso. Right now, me come from the ghetto, yuh hear me man ?' This long unavailable set from trinity (Wade Brammer) is one of the most coherent statements ever committed to wax by any Jamaican deejay. Produced by roots master Yabby You, the album made a brief appearance in 1977 before disappearing completely. With Trinity riding some of Yabby.s deepest roots rhythms, all mixed at King Tubby.s, this is simply essential. This release adds 5 bonus tracks, including the superb discomix of the Prophets. 'Blessed Are The Meek'.

What the press say:

Mick Hucknall finances the release of a forgotten gem from 1977, Jamaican musics golden era. Now Trinity - aka Wade Brammer - is rescued from obscurity with an extended album that features studio overlords King Tubby and Prince Jammy at the height of their powers. This old school reggae deserves a full honours degree. **** Gavin Martin, The Mirror (UK), 17th March 2000
