Day 143 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Trinity - Turn Yu Roll
Alpha Boys School graduate Junior Brammer, AKA Trinity, cut his first tune "Set Up Yourself" for Joseph Hoo Kim in March 1976. He followed that up with his debut album Words Of The Prophet for Yabby You later the same year and by the time 1977 rolled around, he found himself in high demand cutting as many as 20 tracks for a wide variety of producers. By the end of the decade Trinity began producing his own material and issuing them on his signature Flag Man label but only a couple years later, after when his demand began to wane, he transitioned from deejaying to singing, dropped the Trinity name and began using his given name instead. Today's track, the 142nd in the 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge, is called "Turn Yu Roll" and it comes from Trinity's album African Revolution produced by Alvin Ranglin and released on the G.G.'s label in 1979... and damn is it a good one!
