Round two of Channel One releases! Continuing in our campaign to re-release the jewels of the Channel 1 catalog which have not been back out since their original release, we bring you our first batch of 10-inches, the dubplate-style vinyl format introduced to reggae by Channel 1 in the early 1980's. After introducing the 12-inch discomix to JA in the late 1970's, Channel was innovating again in the early 1980's, bringing out a barrage of 10-inches from their new NY base, featuring many awesome tracks. Now, regarding our second pair of 10-inches, DKR has left no stone unturned in the search for the forgotten by many, revered by some, and seldom or never heard tunes of the past, which for one reason or another, were never released, sold only on dubplate, or never played again after being committed to tape. And in turning over so many stones, we've managed to find some gold, and have dug up some things previously thought lost. So begins the Channel 1 "Lost & Found" series, unreleased material from 29 Maxfield Avenue, straight from master tapes. We're kicking off this series with two monster releases. First, from the man called Horace Andy. After producing some tunes with Horace in the 1970's, Channel One went back to work with Horace in the early 1980's, releasing a fantastic showdown LP featuring Horace and Patrick Andy, via Sonic Sounds' Thunderbolt label. But in addition to those tunes, another grip of equally great tunes were also made which didn't end up on the album, and here's two of the best. "Why Oh Why" made the rounds on dubplate at the time, the riddim is heavy like lead, and you might recognize it from other released cuts. "Satisfy Me" has Horace riding the same riddim as Barry Brown's "Over Me", to equally great effect. Both tracks are followed by dubs.
