Overview

This first of a two-part collection highlighting big reggae hits from the 1980s spotlights toasters, Jamaica's fast-talking, high-speed verbal improvisers who influenced the first generation of African-American rappers. The anthology includes such perennials as Yellowman, Brigadier Jerry, U-Roy, Eek-A-Mouse, and Charlie Chaplin, whose elocution, pacing and style differ considerably from the new generation's Sanchez, Little Lenny, Johnny P., and Tiger. While no one has done more openly vulgar toasting in reggae history than Yellowman, such songs as "Girls Guide" by Johnny P. or "Wicked & Wild" by Little Lenny lack the flowing wit vintage toasters such as I-Roy or Big Youth brought to their exaggerated sexual exploits and outlandish narratives.
