Eek-A-Mouse anthology unveils classic hits and super rare finds Image

by Biko Kennedy

Standing as one of the first to introduce the singjay style in Dancehall's ever-shifting culture, Eek-A-Mouse hit-riddled catalogue receives anthology treatment from VP Records

Set for a November 5th release date, the compilation comes as part of VP Records' reissue series dubbed 17 North Parade.

In 1980 Eek-A-Mouse etched his name on the world of Reggae and Dancehall music with his most popular song to date, Wha Do Dem. Though the single was heavily criticised for its lyrical content at the moment, this is the easiest single that comes to mind once Eek-A-Mouse is mentioned or thought of.

Previously released anthologies include the reflective Dennis Brown anthology The Crown Prince of Reggae:  Singles 1972-1985, Gregory Isaacs' sultry The Ruler (1972-1990), Barrington Levy's potent Sweet Reggae Music Reggae Anthology and the Mighty Diamonds' compelling Pass the Knowledge: Reggae Anthology.
