  • Wackies label

    is wackies strictly a re-ish label, or has it been resurrected from a previous incarnation?

    just wondering as i picked up a copy of the tribesman assault lp recently on wackies (great album) and, for all intents and purposes, right down to pressing quality and label copyrights, etc, it came out in the 70's. yet wackies now seem to do a lot of re-issues.... ? most confusing...

      10 euros to me due to it being poorly listed on eBay..

      but i'm beginning to wonder if it's a re-issue given the wackies association, although i've never seen it knocking around in the uk. was wackies the original label?

        if its got a matt cover it should be an original the reissues tend to be in a shiny covers,


        Horace Andys - Dance Hall Style the one massive attack borrowed from heavily was on wackies

          Noice! I *think* Wackies was the original label and they wouldn't be the only label to now be recycling their back catalogue. But I'm no authority. I've handled the reissue and it's pretty much like the cheap represses of all the soul and funk LP's - thinner card than thirty years back and non-laminated cover...

            Wackie's is definetly original label. Wackie's main man was Lloyd 'Bullwackie' Barnes and he was in Jamaica and UK during 70's working with different artists and producers and soundsystems. He moved to NYC, put up his own soundsystem first and later put up a studio and started to release stuff under name Wackie's round 1983. He recorded loads of stuff, specially dub stuff is really good (African Roots Acts). He also worked with people like Jackie Mittoo, Horace Andy and many more.
