Uglyman Vs Little John – Dancehall Clash [1986]

Uglyman Vs Little John - Dancehall Clash

Produced by Harry J and released on his own label in 1983, this is another entry into the hugely popular ‘DJ confrontation’ album format – which typically saw two popular DJs dropping 5 tracks each on one album (see Yellowman Vs Josey Wales – Two Giants Clash as another example of the genre).

Little John went on to become a popular name in the dancehall and recorded a number of successful vocal dancehall albums; Uglyman however had less success – he was more popular as a live entertainer on sound systems than a recording artist and didn’t produce many albums or singles. Uglyman remains fondly regarded amongst early reggae dancehall trainspotters.

This is a great album and the amateurish album artwork weirdly works well (at least in our opinion, we’ve seen worse anyway).
