KILLAMANJARO VINTAGE DUBPLATES



Wicked mixtape from Killamanjaro outta Jamaica. Dropped on DHR by the one fyah youth. I bought the CD in 2001, back when you could still find cassette men in Brooklyn (now they're all online lol). Freddy Kruger, the selector who took over Jaro after Ricky Trooper, makes a good point on the intro if you don't love these tunes, you don't love reggae (or women either lol). Longtime Jaro fans will recognize most of their more well-known foundation dubs are missing, but no matter you can hear those on most Jaro tapes. These are the kind of dubs Jaro will play early on, just to show off their belly. Most sounds would hold onto these dubs strictly for dub fi dub rounds, let alone put out a CD of them! This mix has so many huge dubplates it's impossible to name the best ones so here's the full tracklisting!
