Johnny Dollar

Also known as: Mad Mad / Disases / Dutty Rub

"Diseases, Jah come fe lick you with diseases.." Michigan n Smiley, reallyscored big with this one. The dubbel DJ teams of those days was actually a rahter good idea. It always surprices me how livley and fresh these oldtunes sound. I'v got a real favorite that I play every now and then. It's a LP called Jah Standing Over Me, featuring two DJ's called Peter Rankin'and General Lucky. On the cover they pose by a picture of Hailie Selassie.They are wearing baby dreads, beards and matching training suits. Never heard of them since, but I'm sure they where the hottest act a Yard for a couple of weeks a long time ago. If you happen to have the LP I bet you haven'tplayed it for years. Play it, you'll be surprised too. A Michigan n Smileyalbum will do as well I guess.Oh, I almost forgot... the riddim:Mr Soul Of Jamaica, Alton Ellis, cut Mad Mad wayback when, but the riddim is these days better known as Johnny Dollar or Diseases. This is a Youth Promotion cut.

Wicked riddim still. Jah Mason,Luciano,Lutan Fyah, Mikey general blazed over dis riddim

Producer Henry "Junjo" Lawes made Yellowman famous with this riddim, most of Yellowman hits were on the Mad Mad riddim:
1. Getting Married
2. Getting Divorced
3. Zungazung
4. Water Pumpie
5. Pooping Contest
6. Soldier Tek Over

Also check out "Live at Aces," Dee-Jay Explosion Inna Dancehall Style and Yellowman "Live at Aces" for some more Yellowman & Fathead freestyle lyrics to the Mad Mad Riddim.

I remember all these tunes from Guyana (pre 1985) when Yellowman was the biggest dancehall DJ around. I still think Yellowman is the greatest dancehall

Yeah, "Jungle Rock" is the tune!!!!

Peter Rankin is featured on a number of drum & bass (dubwise) tracks with Visionary.

Jungle rock is featured on my Imperial Dub 4 mix (musicv2.com/artist/djwhizard) - you can check it out on my page for free - and also get a taste of Visionary, and dubwise drum & bass.... Heavy reggae vibes...

Peter Rankin is still recording music in Toronto. He does a lot of work with a drum n bass production duo called Visionary. They even did one tune that uses the Real Rock riddim called "Jungle Rock." Big tunes from them!

Check this wonderful Johnny $ from Daweh Congo - Herb Tree. Think this is cut over an old Radict version, allthough the voicing was done around 2003 or so.
