"Yellowman's debut album"

Mister Yellowman by albino Jamaican reggae artist Yellowman is a pure classic, the guy's first album - originally released in 1982, it's full of legendary ragga/dancehall tracks.

Yellowman has a style of singing that is extremely chilled out, the closest in style is possibly Dillinger. Whilst the guy uses quite a lot of fillers for instance boom boom clack in Duppy or Gunman, he also uses plenty of strong lyrics in each track - in this case "gunshot respect no one", in fact that's no where near one of the best songs on the album.

That honour doesn't go to the "love song" - Morning Ride either as it's a little bit too long, nor the unbelievably catchy Mr.Chin but it has to be "Getting Married" - Yellowman really seems in a world of his own as he does impersonations of the the woman and man. It's highly entertaining, well made and an enjoyable track from beginning to end.

It's hard to say whether this album is better than later albums like "Yellow Like Cheese", "Two Giants Clash" or "Zungguzungguguzungguzeng" but it's definitely damn good.
