I gotta say, I hate bad album covers. Covers that are so bad they don't even qualify for the "so bad it's good" routine. They're just bad. The one below is one of them. What makes it worse is that the music it contains is damn fine, the album cover is one of very few for Scotty, a Jamaican DJ/toaster, and that shitty little round photo is one of only two to be found online. (The other, above.)
Some of you, familiar with his "Draw Your Brakes" from the soundtrack of The Harder They Come, might assume that he was as big as some of the other artists on the soundtrack, namely Jimmy Cliff, the Maytals, and Desmond Dekker. Not so, at least outside of Jamaica. There he had several hits. But outside of Jamaica, you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who can name another song of his besides "Draw You Brakes", So it is that that seems to be the only song floating around online. But guess what? Ghost Capital has the whole LP. And a great profile. Yee haw.
