Linval thompson scientist pop no style - All-Time Favorite Reggae Albums | Fast n Bulbous

Junjo Wins the World Cup  is the only authorized re-issue of an all-time classic Greensleeves dub album  Scientist Wins the World Cup . Junjo Lawes’ storied impact on a pivotal decade of reggae and dancehall continues through this re-release. The instrumental half of the album is scored by Roots Radics, the famous session band that backed Junjo’s productions. Hopeton “Scientist” Brown, Lawes’ go-to engineer who mixed the majority of his early releases on his Volcano label in Jamaica and at United Kingdom’s Greensleeves, adds the final touches to the album. After Lawes transitioned his career from a singer to an overall orchestrator of talent, some of his major claims to fame are the discovery of Barrington Levy and producing records for established reggae artists such as Johnny Osbourne, Hugh Mandell and Wayne Jarrett, captured on the second disc.

By the mid 80's he had released three critically acclaimed deejay albums (the first two being produced by Linval Thompson , a dub record and a whole heap of discos and singles for various producers such as Sugar Minott, Dennis Brown, Junior Delgado, Errol Dunkley and of course himself. His biggest hit, Fattie Boom Boom, topped the charts in 1981 with its humorous lyrics about over sized women.
