Happy “Oldies Sunday“! In recognition of Emancipation Day on August 1st, we have a special selection for you. Going back a few decades, our Oldies Sunday selection comes from Recording Artist/Musician/Producer Glen Brown a.k.a. “God Son” with the track, “No More Slavery“.

Released through Dwyer Records in 1975, “No More Slavery” is an Instrumental release by Glen Brown. Leading with a Melodica, Glen plays notes that may have represented the uplifted moods and the joyous feeling of freedom when Emancipation was declared on August 1, 1838. “No More Slavery” was a part of a long list of tracks that Glen Brown created over the years, and is one of his much respected selections in various parts of the world. Glen Brown would find success in the 1970s, and contribute to many recordings from numerous Artists until he transitioned in October 2019.

Remember your roots! Emancipate yourselves from every form of Slavery!

With his “A1 sound“, Ranger kicks off clever lyrics that were sure to entertain the listener. “Natty Dread On The Go” was featured on his debut album, “On the Other Side Of Dub“, which was released in 1977. The track gained new life recently when it was featured in season 4 of the popular Netflix Sci-Fi series, “Stranger Things“.

Yabby You a.k.a. Vivian Jackson - Deliver Me From My Enemies (1977) on 13thStreetPromotions.com

OLDIES SUNDAY: Yabby You – Deliver Me From My Enemies (1977)


In today’s world, many are unsure of who really has their backs. Regardless, we have to trust in a higher power. Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from the great Yabby You with the track, “Deliver Me From My Enemies“.

With Yabby You handling the production and released through Grove Music in 1977, “Deliver Me From My Enemies” is Yabby’s way of asking God for protection from those who wish to endanger him. He utilizes Psalm 143:8-10 throughout the song through a chant like delivery, and the sounds that accompany makes it for a very spiritual listen. The track was featured on his album of the same name in 1977. Born Vivian Jackson, he had a rough upbringing due to poverty, and after experiencing severe Arthritis at age 17, he became partially crippled. He found himself hustling in the streets for quite some time before finding success with the single, “Conquering Lion”. From there, he became known in various circles, and recorded and produced for many upcoming and established Artists. He passed away in 2010 from a Brain Aneurysm.

THANK YOU YABBY YOU!

OLDIES SUNDAY: Tappa Zukie – Freedom (1976)


Break the chains and kick down the gates, it’s Emancipation Sunday on Oldies Sunday! Parts of the Caribbean recognize August 1 (and August 2 on weekdays if the 1st is on a weekend) as Emancipation Day. It’s a day that commemorates the abolition of slavery, but we’re still fighting against many other forms of depression around the world. Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from the great Tappa Zukie with his track, “Freedom“.

Produced by Tappa Zukie and released through the KLIK Label in 1976. “Freedom” finds Tappa Zukie calling for the liberation of black people who have been held captive for centuries. He flexes a mix of singing and toasting inna dub style on the track, and he can be heard saying “freedom a wha di natty dread want…” throughout. The song came around the time when black consciousness was at an all time high, and it makes its mark an important song of the times, with messages that are still relevant today. “Freedom” was included on Zukie’s 1976 album, “MPLA“. As we recognize an important day, may we still fight to break the new chains of oppression.

Thank You Tappa Zukie!
