Junior Keatting's Weekend Lover, originally released in 1980. During the late 1970s, deejay-turned-producer Jah Thomas played a key role in the emerging dancehall movement, harnessing the Roots Radics at Channel One studio for rough-edged futuristic rhythms that became platforms for songs of everyday life. Junior Keating's solid debut LP Weekend Lover gathered popular singles such as "Watch What You Do", which implored upright living, and lovers' laments "Long Long Time" and "Something Is Bugging Me"; "Conquering Lion" showed that the versatile singer was also adept at deep roots tunes. With a tough mix by Scientist at King Tubby's studio and additional editing by Bullwackie, this superb offering is of massive appeal to all fans of late roots and foundation dancehall.
