Ranking Slackness – Slackest LP [1979]

Ranking Slackness - Slackest LP (1979)
For the uninitiated, the term ‘slackness’ basically refers to sex and bawdy lyrics.

Ranking Slackness seems to be doing a jig (whilst holding his trousers up) in order to lure the ladies into his web of slackness. Nice sketch of the naked lady at the top as well, either the artist messed up one of her feet and decided to cover it up by drawing a shoe on her, or maybe Ranking Slackness just likes his ladies with only one shoe.

This album was released in 1979 on Techniques Records in Jamaica, and was an instant, but controversial, hit which paved the way for more artists to raise the bar and go even more ‘slack’ than ranking Slackness did on this record. The album was produced by Winston Riley, and is packed with some of the biggest and bass heavy riddims of the late 70s. Great album for the genre.
