Gussie Presenting IRoy

£ 21.99


Shortly after pioneering DJ U Roy took the Jamaican recording industry by storm in 1970, a new wave of DJs made their mark on the island’s music scene, a handful of whom quickly supplanted most of their predecessors and transformed the art of toasting into a respected art form. At the forefront of this second movement was Roy Reid aka I Roy, who deejayed for local sound systems in the late sixties before making his mark as a recording artist in 1971. Soon after, leading Jamaican producer Augustus Clarke snapped for his Gussie Records label, with their subsequent sessions together resulting in the DJ’s highly acclaimed debut LP, Gussie Presenting I Roy LP.
