"King Jammy is best known as the man that launched Jamaican music's digital revolution. Indeed, he produced 'Sleng Teng', the first fully digital Jamaican hit and one of the most-versioned rhythms of all time. King Jammy in Roots collects some of Jammy's most enthralling productions from the late 1970s and early 1980s with high-calibre artists such as Black Uhuru, Hugh Mundell, Augustus Pablo, Lacksley Castell, Junior Reid and Johnny Osbourne ; Jammy's unique, atmospheric dubs complete the picture. After an uneventful youth in Montego Bay, Lloyd 'Jammy' James found himself living a few doors down from King Tubby in the Waterhouse ghetto of western Kingston. The pair became very close and as Tubby's young apprentice, Jammy learned the vital electrical knowledge that is key to operating a sound system. After spending the early 1970s in Toronto, Jammy returned to Jamaica to become the right-hand man at Tubby's legendary studio; he then started recording local talent after receiving encouragement from producers Bunny Lee and Yabby You."
