Chukki Starr Exposes Dem Back Door Deal!

It's been more than a year since Cou$ins Records label boss Donville Davis released an album in his "Rhythm 2 Rhythm Series" (though he did remain active active issuing compilations and one-riddim album in his "Ride The Rhythm" series over the last year) but now here's the 9th volume in this series "Rhythm 2 Rhythm Vol. 9 ~ Fort Augustus / Craven Puppy" riding two great relicks of classic riddims by the Stingray posse (Paul 'Jazzwad' Yebuah, Sista's Valerie 'Vybz' Skeete & Stanley Andrews laid the riddims for Carlton 'Dillie' & Raymond 'Sting' McLeod).

A relick of Junior Delgado's "Fort Augustus" from 1979 for Sly & Robbie's Taxi label and of Bob Marley & The Wailers' "Craven Choke Puppy" from 1971 self-produced for their own Tuff Gong label. Featured here is UK artist Chukki Starr's Back Door Deal on the Fort Augustus riddim, a timely tune considering the economic shitstem and corporate "bail out" kulcha. Chat de truth Chukki 'cuz it must reveal!
