  • 90% of Jamaica's vinyl is in Japan

    Well that's what happens when you sell stuff.

    I bet they got very good prices from the Japanese dealers. Prices are outrageous in Japan for ORGs.

        That's a UK record. Old skinheads have cornered that market.
        Mind you I remember reports of Japanese buyers stripping UK shops in the early 90s. I never actually saw any, though.

            Most of that's in Japan as well.

                Didn't Mighty Crown hoover up most of the island's vinyl a few years back?

                      Are they notorious for being Jamaican vinyl hunters?

                        No, but apparently they are good at juggling?!

                        "Even though Mighty Crown is known for its juggling at parties. It is one of the most feared sound system in the dancehall clash world"

                          Juggling is the Jamaican term for mixing, it's pretty commonly used in the reggae world...?

                            Damn. I was having fun trying to picture them juggling at parties.
