Various Artists - Vigerton Two

More early reggae, this time instrumentals from other producers then Coxsone Dodd. If you have a good musical ear you will hear a couple of musicians appearing in more then one group. For example Jackie Jackson (Bass), Winston Wright (Organ) And Hugh Malcom (Drums) appeared in The Crystalites, The Upsetters, The Dynamites, The Rhythm Rulers, ofcourse The Supersonics and many more studio groups.

The song "Vigerton Two" was a song written by King Stitt. Stitt who hang around with Coxsone, in the beginning didn't got the chance to record for him, because Coxsone thought then that King Stitt couldn't make a record. Clancy Eccles, a young starting producer then, tought he could and recorded "Fire Corner". Two months later he saw Coxsone at his shop with a trousy (long) face, Stitt recorded first for Clancy and not for him. So together with Jack Ruby Stitt came up then with the idea of "Vigerton Two" (Vigerton Two was a tonic wine they used to advertise on the Jamaican radio in the 60's).

"Look how you sad and blue,
I King Stitt has got a new discovery for you,
The thank god Vigerton Two, lord have mercy...."

The tracklist is in the comment.

Great site!
Although it makes no difference, I just thought I would say that I think King Stitt says:
"Look how you sad and blue
But I, King Stitt, have a new discovery for you...
the BAD BAD Vigorton Two!"

That you for sharing your creativity!
