Stars Ah Shine: Hits from the Stars Label 1978-1982 (Kingston Sounds)

Another recent release worth checking is Tapper Zukie’s Stars Ah Shine: Hits from the Stars Label 1978-1982, a compilation of singles issued on Zukie’s own Stars label. That’s right, Tapper Zukie is not only a successful recording artist in his own right, but a well-respected producer as well. In the mid-1970s he set up his own record label, Stars, to help nurture the many artists who were rising in Kingston, Jamaica. In doing so he created a great catalog of reggae music that few artists have bettered. For this release — with the help of Tapper Zukie himself — Kingston Sounds has selected the highlights of the Stars label. Includes tracks by Junior Ross & The Spears, Prince Alla, Linford Nugent, Cornell Campbell, Dennis Brown, Horace Andy, The Mighty Diamonds, Rockey Dread, Ronnie Davis, Freddy McKay, Alton Ellis, and Frankie Jones, with three bonus tracks on the CD, by Tapper Zukie, Vibes Tone, and Frankie Jones.

Just a few of the selections included in this set:

Cornell Campbell “Press Along Natty”


Mighty Diamonds “Morgan The Pirate”


Prince Allah “Bosrah”
