Long time coming, here are the final two of the three killer tunes by the HAX, cut for Leggo Sounds back in the mid '80s. We previously issued the awesome "Duppy" (still available!) as DKR-011 a few years back, and now the other two tunes from the same session are finally available again.

Frankie Paul's "That Love" is a cut on the same lick of the 'revolution' rhythm made famous by Barrington Levy's "Black Roses." It was originally released on CH1's one-away 'Channel Expression' imprint, only on 7" in JA.

nother fantastic mid '80s rhythm from the Gifted Roots Band, this one infuses digital vibes with the live Channel 1 sound. Then the next cut on 'Raise Again' rhythm, Steve Knight's "Orphan Child", originally featured only on his rare LP of the same name, it's here on a single for the first time.

round this time Selassie was a young artist hanging with the Youth Promotion crew as well as Callo's Rythem Track crew. This rugged live-digital (played, not programmed) tune was cut at Music Mountain studios, and to us has a similar vibe as the great live-digital Leggo Sounds releases we put out a while back. "Variety" was until recently very obscure, being released only in NY, on a 12" on the Genesis Music label, operated by a former Bronx record shop.

From 1986, "Duppy" by The Hax. A tune which blew us away from first listen with its amazingly advanced digital riddim, played live and arranged by Leggo's longtime spar Flabba Holt of the Roots Radics. The Hax, another unsung DKR favorite singer who did most of his recording for Leggo, sings "Duppy", delivering a warning with a killer Waterhouse-style vocal…."nuh go dung deh!"

As a long-time Orange Street producer, record store owner and then studio owner, Leggo has built a solid catalog of both wicked roots and dancehall, from the 1970's all the way thru the 1990's. For some time we've been huge fans of Leggo's productions, but as collectors we've found many of them inexplicably hard to find.
