Jah Love Muzik system; ILawi the selector and Brigadier Jerry ah dj. They were the best combination as selector and dj around at that time. Jah Love Muzik system was run by the Christian Rastafarian sect, the Twelve Tribes of Israel. While Briggy was with Jah Love, bootleg cassette tapes of his live performances began to circulate among DJ aficionados, resulting in packed houses wherever they played.

Bless.Yes Cheef, respect. We haffi share the music.



just a btw... have u ever heard these artists' music in a club or radio?? forget abt charlie chaplin and u-roy... I'm curious.Briggy Jamaica, Jamaica King Lion used to play that. Sister Carol used to play on Jahmbo (Kongoni days) if I can remember correctly. But Ranking Joe, I doubt. I don't think Ranking Joe made many big hits. He was better djing on sound and making dubplates.

Henry 'Junjo' Lawes - born and raised in the ghetto around Olympic Way, West Kingston, Jamaica - established himself as one of the most prolific and influential music producers in the first half of the eighties. 'Junjo' actually started his musical career as a singer but it was not until he turned over to production work that he drew notable attention of a broad audience. Producer Henry 'Junjo' Lawes was shot dead in Harlesden, London UK in June, 1999.

NOTE:
When Stur Gav Hi Fi was inactive about 83/84, Josey Wales & Charlie Chaplain joined Volcano Sound. The Selector was the Great Danny Dread (who also played Stur Mars & King Addies). Also around that time Burro Banton left Kill-A-Man-Jaro sound and joined Volcano Sound..

This is Burro Banton's Interview on Riddim Magazine outta Germany:


VOLCANO

“At that time now Junjo Lawes come out with a sound named Volcano. The first night dem play in front of KIW (Kingston Industrial Works) at Spanish Town Road, every deejay in Jamaica came out to see what it’s like... but nobody could move this big crowd. Then I go in the deejay booth an’ from when I started... gunshots everywhere, salutes, fence started to beat! I did three tunes cah I didn’t wanna take (over) the sound, I was just passing through as a deejay. The next day I heard Junjo, the big boss, waan’ see Burro. When I go to check him he said Burro, yuh haffi deejay the sound! An’ then Junjo
wrote me a cheque for $32,000 just to be on the sound!! That’s the first time I get a big money. I didn’t change the cheque. I wanted it to soak inna me pocket! When I finally wanted to change it, the bank didn’t wanna take it cah I showed it to so many people that the cheque get dirty. Afterwards I had to go back to Junjo for another cheque an’ Junjo say to Steve an’ Bellow (his sound managers): even when nobody else gets paid, make sure Burro get his money. So I leave Jaro an’ become a (Volcano) resident, together with
Toyan, Little John, Louie Lepke, Billy Boyo an’ Lee Van Cliff. An’ Josey Wales would join us later.”


“Volcano is gettin’ very, very big now an’ conflict start cah some people say Burro is the best an’ others say Josey. Also Charlie Chaplin come along (to Volcano dances) sometimes but I notice everytime when Charlie come him waan’ clash me! So it end up
that Volcano an’ Killamanjaro clash at 121 Maxfield Avenue (a popular venue at the top part of Maxfield, near the police station. The actual event took place in July 1984). When I reach the dance gate it’s like... (takes a deep breath) yuh know, Volcano is my sound an’ Charlie Chaplin an’ Josey Wales was already there but they don’t act like they’re clashing Killamanjaro, they’re comin’ like they’re clashing me... on my sound! Becah when I reach there I remember Josey Wales sparring partner buss a lyrics an’ the lyrics is about me. An’ me say to myself I haffi prove tonight who’s the best deejay in Jamaica! Everybody is looking for me to go on Volcano now. Those days a clash would be an hour (per set), back an’ forth. So I wait ‘til Volcano’s hour was up... an’ then I go for Killamanjaro’s mic!! Yuh see, after me leave dem Jaro hook up with Supercat an’ Early B. Supercat love it when him see me comin’ back! So me alone was deejaying one hour first but to tell yuh the truth, I don’t get one forward in the dance.

Everybody just stand there an’ looking at me thinking this kid is crazy. We really come fi see him on Volcano sound an’ him go back over to Killamanjaro. I make Volcano play a next hour, then Jaro start play again. I can remember dem drop an Al Campbell (dub), “Long Time Jaro A Wait Pon Yuh, Long Time Jaro Sent Come Call Yuh” an’ the wickedest t’ing, it was on the riddim me love the most, “The Answer”. At the time I had a new lyrics (chants): ‘Na-na-na-nine, na-na-na-nine, na-na...’ I had it built with Josey Wales an’ Charlie Chaplin’s name in the song, the first time I ever call people’s name as a lyrics. Me say: ‘Dance dem a keep over Washington, dem sent fi Josey Wales an’ him friend Principal (Charlie Chaplin) / but all dem a chat couldn’t cork di session...’ An’ all mi hear was just: BLUP! BLUP!! BLUP!!! Whole heap a gunshot! Supercat just take the mic from me an’ say ‘Charlie Chaplin a Dread an’ still him eat meat! Burro catch him with a pound of pork inna brown paper an’ tell him ‘bout cheeseburger’... Bare gunshot again! Dat’s how Cat make him name, dat was the rising of Supercat. Dat night! Josey Wales waan’ fight now, him can’t take it anymore, he flash a long knife. Supercat have an ice-pick. Yuh have a police in Jamaica named Bigga Ford (Cornwell “Bigga” Ford, one of Jamaica’s most notorious ‘super cops’ who was a regular at almost every major dancehall event). He come in between an’ say Josey, come take your defeat tonight. Yuh can’t do dem deejays here nuttin’. Dat was the proudest night of my deejay career! It was a big dance, well big. I was the last man to come out of the dance. I wait ‘ til Killamanjaro pack up him sound. Them was a little neat sound, the whole ah it fit inna VW van, the double 18 (inch) speakers, everyt’ing... While Mr. Harper was driving out I wait an’ I’m the one to give him the signal to move the van. An’ people are still watching me. This is like six o’ clock in the morning now. I’m proud! (almost screaming) I don’t go home. I leave an’ go a Skateland (nearby at Half Way Tree) cah yuh know people don’t come out of Skateland before twelve or one o’clock (mid-day). I wait fi dem, I couldn’t go home. I feel sooo good.”

“Yuh waan’ know how Junjo take that blow?” he asks lowering his voice. “I don’t like to say it but dat’s the killing of Volcano. The sound (is) not big no more and never play again in Jamaica. (Shortly afterwards Junjo would carry the set to New York). Dat’s
the only sound that ever died. Other sounds lose clashes an’ play again. Not Volcano. I was the one that built it... an’ I killed it!”

Jahlovemusic International - Billy's Skateland, Grange Hill 1983


Featuring: Brigadier Jerry, Colonel Ion..

Selector: Ilawi & Chris...

Jah Love hit the town of Grange Hill and the Twelve Tribes followers packed into Billy's Skateland to hear their organisation's sound system rock it in an "Orthodox" fashion. The main man Brigadier Jerry is here at the start, announcing that "Slackness Bite the Dust" and "Some Girls Tricky". But it's not all Briggy in this portion of the dance and although deejays Covenant Hinds and Jeremiah are also present, he hands over to Colonel Ion, a U Brown-inspired DJ, who gets a chance to prove himself over Ilawi's selections. His pieces like "Grance Hill Skank" and "Smoke the Ishens" keep the vibes flowing before Brigadier Jerry inevitably (but not captured here) would have returned to "cork the dance" for the rest of the night.
