Album - new. Black vinyl.


Jah Lion, The Black Lion of Judah, (born Patrick Lloyd Francis, 29 August 1947) was a Jamaican reggae singer, deejay and producer. Francis began his career in the mid-1960s as a singer in The Mediators. Then, recording as Jah Lloyd, he turned his hand to deejaying, enjoying hits in Jamaica with Black Snowfall, World Class, and Beware of the Flour. He then recorded with Lee 'Scratch' Perry, who decided to rename the deejay Jah Lion, the fruits of their association released on the Colombia Colly album in 1976 on Island Records. Wisdom from the album was featured in the soundtrack to the film Countryman, and Soldier and Police War (a deejay version of Junior Murvin's Police and Thieves) topped the reggae chart. Jah Lion growls and burns out words with a rich, tasty backing of swirling scratchey guitar, thumping bass and surges of gutteral dub.
