Tempo


Murda inna dancehall! This was the riddim (with small variations) behindAnthony Redrose's Tempo (King Tubby), Nitty Gritty's Hog Inna Minty (King Jammy) and Tenor Saw's Fever (Sugar Minott). Classic cuts to say the least. Redrose's version was the biggest hit, butI think I've read somewhere that Jammy's cut was the first. Anyway, youwho went to dances in the days of early digi will surely remember the response these tunes got from the crowd. I'm hope these digi tunes will soon be rereleased, it's about time.Don't miss them. Nitty Gritty, Tenor Saw, Anthony Redrose, Carl Meeks, King Kong and Courtney Melody was the hottest digi singers.(Courtney Melody is my favourit "make the lyrics while you go along" singer. (Yes, there are a few to choose from in the reggae business).Check his BadBwoy LP for Jammy's. He obviously has no idea of what the song is going to be about when the first chords hit. That combined withwhat a critic at the time called "technical weakness" (i.e. he don't sing in tune) you would think it would be a catastrophy. But instead...murdera! His style is pure energy! Raw danchall exitement! (To be fairhe also made some exellent tunes where words, singing and his energic stylecame together in the wickedest way. Check his Tappa and Ujama singles. Unfourtunetly these are very hard to come across. Compile and rerelease Greensleeves, RAS, Blood And Fire...:-).

Wickedest track on the Tempo riddim, even better than Nitty Gritty's, has to be Garnet Silk's Complain.
Musically, vocally and lyrically, it's just a complete masterpiece!

Comment:
Ernie B's also lists King Kong's "Aids a Go Round" and Red Rose's "Bangarang" on this riddim or aka Crank Angle riddim. These 2 songs are on the Crank Angle riddim, which is a totally different, distinct riddim also originated by Tubby's circa '85. The dub (found on Firehouse Revolution on Pressure Sounds) is labeled Crank Angle Part 2 by King Asha. Definitely different riddim than Tempo, but definitely same early digi Tubby's vibe

Terry Ganzie had a well wicked tune on dis riddim on his album "Outlaw" that he released on Profile Records. I think the tune was "King of Kings"..not sure though

hard to believe....it sounds so STALAG-like...

Well, checked it and with all due respect King Pablo... that was the original Tubbys version. Can't be more Tempo then that...

However, I replaced it anyway, because I happen to come across this version. Dunno where it's from, but I found it to be a very clear Tempo but with interesting variations from the original.

Both versions to follow in full in the near (I hope) future.
