Prince Jazzbo

Straight from Claredon comes a man called Prince Jazzbo. I snagged this compilation from Pressure Sounds last week and have been giving it a listen. It's pretty good although I gotta say I prefer "Ital Corner" over this release.

It includes the diss track "Kick Boy Face" which was used in an on-going feud between toaster and deejay extraordinaire I-Roy. The best part was that the two were actually good friends, but the general public wasn't made aware of that little fact. I guess even in 1975 fake beef was a profitable idea. Some things never change.

I also posted the sleeve for Kick Boy Face because that cover is hard I don't care what you think.
