Yabby You - King of Kings / Oh City of Zion 12" (Prophets)
DKR-258
Previously unreleased on vinyl.

Back in 2014, we had the privilege of helping pioneering US reggae label Shanachie Records compile the rarities portion of their terrific "Dread Prophecy" 3CD collection of Yabby You music. From the start, we knew one track that had to be included was the killer "Oh City of Zion", an alternate vocal on the "King Pharoah Plague" rhythm which we had heard on a dubplate years before. Luckily we were able to get this included but even better was that Shanachie was able to locate another unreleased mix of this tune on tape, called "King of Kings." Both tunes ended up on the CD set, and we had always intended to issue them on vinyl after the release of the CD. Time flies and eight years went by, but here they are! Not much needs to be said about the music of Yabby You and the myriad of brilliant mixes it received at King Tubby's studio...if you're on this page you should know. But here's two more killer pieces to enjoy. Special thanks to Shanachie, long time soldiers in the business, for helping bring these tunes to light.
