For some reason this ended up in my 'to sell' pile and I thought I'd give it a listen as I hadn't for years. I'm glad I did, it's great!
Typical Marvellous Cain- stripped down rude boy jungle at it's best. Rolling breaks and sub bass with bags of dancehall flavour.
As others have stated, there's alternate mixes of 'Hitman', 'Jump Up' and 'Creep' here that as far as I'm aware aren't available elsewhere, but my fave by a long shot is '45 Clip' with Frankie Paul. It's more of a meditative, subtle roller than the rest, and Frankie's vocals are sweet and soothing. Works a treat!
It seems most of the vocals were recorded exclusively for the album, which is interesting and goes to show how strong the links between jungle and reggae/dancehall music were at the time. 'Babaloo' sees Daddy Freddy spitting the same lyric Marvellous sampled on his 'Dub Plate Style' single. Needless to say, I'm going to keep this one!

Disturbingly good 2x12" here. Like Urban style Ragga jungle at its peak? Do yourself a favor and pick this up!

the version of hitman on this only appears on this album, probably the best version to
