Mit der Fortsetzung der in 2010 begonnenen Serie *Jammys From The Roots* ehrt Greensleeves einen der ganz großen Produzenten Jamaikas. Lloyd James aka Prince Jammy aka King Jammy, oder ganz einfach Jammys, wurde 1947 in Kingston, in dem berühmt berüchtigten Stadtteil Waterhouse, geboren. Als junger Mann wurde er zum Musterschüler des King Tubby und eröffnete alsbald sein eigenes Studio (u.a. erstes Album von Black Uhuru), um ab Mitte der 80er bis hin zu den frühen 90er Jahren die unangefochtene Nummer 1 der erfolgreichen Produzenten zu werden. Auf der Doppel-LP finden sich 20 Tracks, viele Raritäten dabei, alle in erstklassiger Soundqualität und top-a-top remastered.

With "More Jammys From the Roots" the spotlight falls on the rich stream of reality gold that King Jammy aka Prince Jammy continued to mine in the mid to late eighties - available as 2-LP set with 20 tracks!

Many of reggae's biggest names, Junior Murvin, Dennis Brown, Horace Andy, Johnny Osbourne. Wailing Souls etc. all lined up at Jammy's Waterhouse studio to deliver hit after hit on lethal cuts of some of reggae's finest rhythms both vintage ('Stalag', 'Real Rock' 'African Beat', 'Satta') and up-to-the-time ('32 Chip', 'Run Down The World').

The release of MORE JAMMY's FROM THE ROOTS makes these sought after recordings at last available again. With a large number of these never before released on CD this collection is guaranteed to be eagerly snapped up by a growing reggae audience that is increasingly looking at this digital revolution as a new reggae golden age.
