Pay It All Back Vol. 1 + Vol. 2

This was a cheapo sampler from 1984 of (mostly) previously released material on the great ON-U label run by genius Adrian Sherwood.

Many tracks on ON-U featured the former Sugarhill backing band later also known as Tackhead, guitarist Skip McDonald, bassist Doug Wimbish and drummer Keith LeBlanc, completed by singer Bernard Fowler.

You can find more info on Skysaw's ON-U fan site with lots of information on the label and the artists and all the rhythms. This is a german site on ON-U .

V. A. - Pay It All Back Vol. 1


Unfortunately this link is no longer available and even more unfortunately I do not have a copy of this file! Grrrr... If anybody has a copy he found here, please let me know by posting a comment to the newest entry to this blog, so I can update this post for everyone and myself. I am not too keen on ripping several records again...


The second volume is from 1988 and features among others Reggae legends Lee Perry, Bim Sherman and Prince Far I, three of the great voices of Reggae and Dub.

This LP has more electronic flair to it, yet still keeping the trademark ON-U sound of Reggae and Dub plus that extra bit of weirdness/charme/genius, that makes these songs stand out.

V. A. - Pay It All Back Vol. 2

Labels: ,

always loved those compilations... they got me into so many different types of music that previously i'd not experienced... i can't think of anyone i knew that didn't love something of those albums...

Hallo Jorg,
Danke, ive got a lot of ON U music, even a special section for it, but i missed this payback vol 1. Ten years ago nobody seemed to have heard of the label, this when in the early eighties i bought and played a lot of the label's music. Glad to see that more people are into it. Bye, Rho
