year of the chalice

At some point dancehall heads noticed that Junior Reid had found a cheaper way to press his own productions. The actual vinyl was of sketchy quality, and had a cloudy look to it. The labels, with their gaudy logo and odd coloring, were printed in bulk and hand-titled with a rubber stamp. This sleeve was used as a test sheet to get the ink pad "just right".

"No Loafting" is JR's treatment of "Skylarking", and "Year Of The Chalice" uses the Kuchie riddim.
