Trinity "Shanty Town Determination"

Trinity a.k.a Junior Brammer is one of the better deejays of the later 70's roots era. Borrowing heavily from Dillinger's style and vice versa I'd imagine Trinity (named after a spaghetti western character) was in high demand after releasing his big tune "Three Piece Suit" recorded on the massive "I'm Still In Love With You" riddim origianlly by Alton Ellis the tune would solidify Trinity as a top class deejay of his day.

The album was produced by Yabby You and features a lot of his tunes as the back drop for Trinity's trademark "kung fu" style chat. The Blood & Fire label chose to re-release this album, but the version I have is the original although I'd pick up there version if you have the chance.

Weird fact: Trinity's little brother is Clint Eastwood (not the actor) who is no slouch pon' the mic himself.
