Ahhh, there is nothing better than a reggae album with a cartoon cover.

Following the meteoric rise of Yellowman in the Jamaican dancehalls, and his success globally – a couple of albino Jamaicans decided to pick up the microphone and emulate his success. Purpleman was one such DJ – he also recorded under the name Peter Yellow, and strangely even released an album as ‘Yellowman’.

Here he teams up with Papa Tullo on a solid early 80s dancehall showcase album with a great cartoon cover.

This album was released in the UK in 1983 on Vista Sounds records. It was produced by Bunny Lee and features riddims from The Aggrovators, Roots Radics, The Taxi Gang and more.
