Don Letts 2018-03-18 Crucial Mary J Blige

“The Don’s selections cross time, space and genre. Each week, as well as blending his favourite new music with classics from the UK, USA, Jamaica, Africa and way beyond, he highlights a piece of Crucial Vinyl – a cherished album from his own collection. This week it’s What’s the 411? Remix, released in 1993 by Mary J. Blige.
Don says, “A remix of Mary J. Blige’s great debut album What’s The 411, this was actually released to buy time for Mary to write her follow up album. Her gritty and very real lyrics acquired an extra edge when reworked by the likes of Teddy Riley, the Notorius B.I.G. and Sean “Puffy” Combs, and it sealed her title as the ‘queen of hip hop soul'”.”
Like many of their peers, the Gladiators had already worked with producers Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry and Coxsone Dodd, before moving over to Joe Gibbs’ studio, where they collaborated with Prince Tony Robinson and recorded what is widely acknowledged as a classic example of roots reggae.”.”
