First reissue since 1983!!!

The Jamaican dancehall artist known as John Wayne was born Norval Headley in 1962 in rural St Elizabeth. He first reached the studio in the early 1980s, recording "Racket Girls In Jackets" for the Root Out label, where you can already hear the fearsome skill unleashed by Wayne at the microphone, showing why he was a favorite of top-ranking sound systems such as Black Scorpio, Kilimanjaro, Jammy's, and Studio Mix. In 1983 he traveled to New York, appearing on a 12" of Sugar Minott's "Jamming In The Street," while the Hoo-Kim brothers paired him with Johnny Slaughter for "Rain Fall, Sun Shine." That same year, Bunny "Striker" Lee produced his only album, titled Boogie Down and issued by Vista Sounds in the UK.
