Eek A Mouse Eek-Ology: Reggae Anthology on LP
Eek-A-Mouse (born Ripton Joseph Hylton) was one of the most unique talents to emerge from the Jamaican reggae scene in the 1980s. The Mouse's inimitable vocal flow combines an unconventional melodic approach filled with rhythm and humor. His unmistakable half-singing, half-deejaying (rapping) style inspired the term "singjay."
The 2013 Reggae Anthology series release Eek-Ology is a thoughtful selection of essential hits and rare gems from Eek-A-Mouse's extensive catalogue during the prime of his career. The anthology features early recordings like his 1979 breakthrough anthem "Once a Virgin" produced by Joe Gibbs and his string of '80s hits with producer Henry "Junjo" Lawes ("Virgin Girl," "For Hire And Removal").
Fans can also be treated to a selection of rarities, including Eek-A-Mouse's earliest releases "Creation," and "No Wicked Can't Reign," both making their vinyl debut.
