Prince Jammy became a King while cutting his musical teeth working for the dub
master himself King Tubby. In that age old Jamaican way where it seems everyone
in Jamaica was given a new name to work with, Prince Jammy as he would be called
so impressed his colleges that he rose from a Prince to a King both names given to
him by producer Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee.

King Jammy (b. Lloyd James, 1947, Montego Bay, Jamaica) then named Prince
Jammy took up the vacant spot as engineer at King Tubby’s request around 1975,
after what turned out to be 5 year hiatus in Canada. Jammy had worked with Tubby
for many years previous to this and had built a great working relationship, but Jammy
had taken some work opportunity that would see him actually staying in Canada
for 5 years .It was the Tubby’s offer of fulltime work and missing Jamaica and family
that would lead to his return.

This would enable Tubby to continue his electrical business knowing full well that
Jammy could be trusted to run the studio sessions smoothly. Jammy was always
the first to arrive and the last to leave the hundreds of sessions he oversaw at
Tubby’s studio, honing his skills that again with Tubby’s blessing and guidance
would lead to building his own studio not a stones throw from Tubby’s in the
Waterhouse district of Kingston.

Out of the many proteges that trained and worked at King Tubby’s and there were
many, Scientist, singer Pat Kelly, Prince Phillip Smart to name but a few it was
King Jammy’s work that was the main stay. We have selected a set of tunes that
were rebuilt with King Jammy at the controls.

Hope you enjoy the set….
