Jah Life reissue series - Part Two!

King Kong's "Agony & Pain" has long been one of our favorite Jah Life tunes, released only on JA 7" in 1987, well-heavy in a sound killing style. To compliment this we also bring you one of the best unreleased tunes we have had the pleasure of uncovering. "Come Down" was made in the same sessions as Kong's massive "He Was a Friend" (reissued by DKR a while back on 12", and still available!), and never released until now. Pure uptempo digital fire!
Montgomery's "Sensimela" is great one-away digital, coming from a fertile period in Jah Life's history when he was producing many young and upcoming singers. This one only ever saw release on a now rare Life Time 12", now back out on 7", and showing again just how many killer one-off digital tunes are lurking out there.
Mikey General's 12" is a killer double sider, both with dubs. Awesome heavy mid 80's style. "Walker John" has a sound not unlike the great mid-80s material on the Tasha label, while "Singer With the Flavor" is a soundboy tune, complete with rewind, on a heavy take of the much-loved stalag rhythm.
Finally, a massive unreleased tune from Flick Wilson, cut at Channel 1 around 1984. The backing band sounds a lot like the Gifted Roots Band who were resident at Channel 1 around this time. We are big fans of Flick and feel he was really under-recorded, so unearthing this gem was a pleasure, killer vocal and a rock-hard riddim.
