Run Down The World

My favourite of the King Jammy digital riddims. Nitty Gritty's original isa great tune. How come Jammy didn't record more on this riddim? Time for amassive comback! This is a Junior Reid production. Junior himself cut Rapapam Pam on thisone. The bassline differs a little bit from Jammys cut, but it's not much,and it's fun to put something related to roots hero Junior Reid on the web.

There is a dub on Phoenix Dub by Linval Thompson that is a non digital version of this riddim. The question is was this recorded by the Radics after Jammy's invented it digi style in '86 or did Jammy's digitize it and take credit for inventing it? I've never read any on this but listen to the dub (last track on CD I think) and you will hear it is definitely the same riddim, only non digital. Unsure what if any tunes are on the non digi version. Anyone know?
