Yabby You- gone but not forgotten
Trinity rides a flyers cut of "Sweat For You Baby" for Yabby You's Prophet imprint.
Got to be the Soul Syndicate!
Much has been made of Yabby You, a dread who was surrounded by rasta and constantly preaching about Christ. I once asked Bassie from the Gladiators if Yabby You was a rasta man or what- Bassie said "He is a Christian who love Jesus Christ!!"
Looks like Prince Tony put this one out for Yabby, retitled with different art.
The booming baritone vocal of Alric Forbes is strikingly heavy on A and B sides mixed by Scratch at Black Ark. It is also known as "Run Come Rally" and seems to be based on the ancient anthem "Sinking Sands", cut by many many artistes over the years under variations of both titles.
Big respect to Yabby You (1946-2010) and the Vivian Jackson Family.
