Within a very short space of time Greensleeves Records has released the fifth "one riddim" album in their extremely popular 'rhythm album series'. This time its 'Punanny' time. This album gathers no less than 22 massive cuts across this infectious riddim. The story starts in 1986 when Admiral Bailey's massive hit Punanny was topping the charts all over the world and the King Jammy released a respectable amount of versions that same year. Ten of these 1986 licks are featured here for added pleasure. Little John's Yes Mama, Major Worries Babylon Boops and Ninjaman's Border Clash were some of the most outstanding licks at that time.
The first twelve tunes on the album are fresh licks produced by the inflammable Ward 21 crew. The artists featured here are today's most in demand deejays such as Elephant Man, Harry Toddler, Ward 21, Mr. Vegas and Beenie Man. Lyrically all artists dig deep into explicit lyrics. The album kicks off with the Punanny Medley delivered by a red hot selection of dancehall artists including Capleton, Lexxus, Bounty Killer, Ward 21, Elephant Man and Harry Toddler. Second in line is Elephant Man with Pum Pum, one of the most strongest licks on the album. Competitive versions from Beenie Man and Mr. Vegas follow and Ward 21 delivers two licks -Five-A-Day and Haters Part 2.
With a whole host of name brand artists this album is a true deejay explosion !
