Greensleeves Rhythm Albums #1-90 NOT COMPLETE PACK (WILL BE UPDATED)

This is only a test. Tell us via our Facebook page if you would like the complete pack.

Do you remember Greensleeves Records? It wasn’t until the last few years when the once mighty UK based imprint became, essentially, an expansion pack for VP Records, before that, however, they were about as active a unit in the entire genre and boasted of having the deepest vault in Reggae as well. They also had many series and, much like VP, their most active and signature line was a riddim album series. Greensleeves’ version was probably overlooked in favour of VP’s Riddim Driven (and I think, really, that had something to do with it not having a great name. Say what you will about “Riddim Driven” as a series – the name is very good), but it definitely made its name amongst more heavy fans as the series would, seemingly, go after more h******e tracks and also contained very little, if any, in the way of editing. In a decade, the series would produce NINETY riddim albums, and only four over the final four years, making it, in its prime, one of the most reliable continuing figures in Dancehall music history. Today, having ridiculously conquered the Riddim Driven series previously, we make the next logical step. Discography: Greensleeves Rhythm Album Series

#1. Bellyas [2000]

Who dem? Ward 21‘s Bellyas Riddim is one of the greatest Dancehall tracks of all time. That isn’t my opinion, it’s a matter of fact as certain and verifiable as it being the first installment of Greensleeves’ Rhythm Album series. This thing was dark, it was grimy, it was explosive and it was perfect for its era, the era before it, the one after it, the one after that and this one as well. It also carried one of the greatest songs of all time (again, a fact, not an opinion), ‘Who Dem’ from Capleton which was somewhere out there beyond even my adjectives. King Shango certainly wasn’t alone, he was joined by the likes of Beenie ManSpragga BenzElephant ManMr. VegasBushman (and Ilue) the Ward and a whole heap of others on this monstrous opening shot of the series which may be forgotten as the opener of this series, but CANNOT possibly be forgotten as one of the Dancehall’s clear masterpieces.

 #2. Virus [2000]

Sickness. The Madd Dawgz helmed Virus Riddim, on the other hand, has largely been forgotten, both as a track and within the series, but that doesn’t mean that it wasn’t any good, because it was – very.

Although it didn’t carry that one HUGE hit, it did score in a few different areas with nice tunes as, once again, Capleton served up its biggest moment, through the infectious ‘Caan Hold We Dung’, but also scoring were Mad CobraElephant ManGeneral DegreeMad Anju and Lexxus, whose ‘Let Those Monkeys Out’ did pretty  well in a much different era of Dancehall music.

#3. Doorslam [2000]

Bust it! The Bust It Riddim which would come Harvel ‘Gadaffi’ Hart and Annex Productions would become the third release in GS… and it would also become the third consecutive riddim in the series on which Capleton scored the biggest as his offering, ‘Bust It’, reigned supreme.

It wasn’t by a wide margin , however, on this hard-hitting track as The Prophet was joined by Beenie ManSizzla Kalonji and, most memorably there was ‘No One Cares’, which was a combination featuring sworn enemies Bounty Killer & MercilessGeneral B would also reach this one nicely as would future opponent (slayer), Kiprich.

#4. Volume [2000]

Turn it up. Capleton didn’t have the biggest tune on the Volume Riddim, which marked Ward 21‘s return to the GRA series (don’t you love that abbreviation?!).

Partially that had to do with the fact that he… wasn’t on it, but even if he was, it’s kind of hard to envision him topping the MONSTER that was ‘Moses Cry’ from Beenie Man which has always been one of my lesser known favourites from the Doctor.

This riddim was WICKED and it kind of had a bit of a gimmick to it with the kind of Godzilla/terror sound to it, which served some better than others. Certainly not the best riddim album, even for its time, but it carried a few sizable moments.

Along with Beenie were stellar pieces from Bounty KillerMad Cobra and the Ward who, win joined by Elephant Man gave the riddim ‘One More [Start A War]’ which was downright evil and I mean that in a good way.

#5. P*****y [2000]

Gimme! I could make so many jokes with this one, but I’m going to try not to. The P*****y Riddim, as for the GRA series (LOVE IT!), was a remake of the classic by Ward 21 again and it was still a very good and completely infectious piece.

The interesting thing about its album was that it combined the eras with Beenie ManElephant Man, the Ward, Lady Saw and Anthony B appearing on one half, while Admiral BaileyShabba Ranking and Ninjaman starred on the next.
