Yellowman Duppy Or Gunman on LP
Jamaica's first dancehall superstar Yellowman ushered in a new era in reggae music. His early '80s success brought the popularity of toasting (reggae's equivalent of rapping) to a new level and helped establish dancehall as the wave of the future. King Yellowman has an incredible history in reggae music. His upbringing at the Maxfield Home orphanage in Kingston and being albino in Jamaica were two obstacles that he overcame and went on to be one of the biggest reggae artists since Bob Marley. Named after the title cut cover of Pluto Shervington's "Duppy or Gunman," this 1982 Yellowman release was produced by Henry "Junjo" Lawes and features rhythms from the Roots Radics and High Times Band.
