same rhythm as DKR-018, BE-006, DKR-084-JJ and B-side of DKR-085-JJ.

From Barbican, Kingston 8, the Chopper crew are back on road! From the mid 1980's straight thru until the early 90's, Choppers were steady releasing tunes both in Jamaica and NYC, and from young upcoming artists and veterans alike. From the mid '80s, a cut on Choppers' own wicked lick of Channel One's "fight fight" riddim. Chopper's lick was laid and mixed at Channel 1 with the Black Roots Band aka Gifted Roots Band. The tune is from Lionel 'Ganja' Barrett, himself a member of the Chopper crew, and one of the first artists released on the label. 'Rasta Cowboy' is his signature tune, an ode to a self-reliant cowboy-like life.
