Lone Ranger, “Top of the Class” [Studio One]

Mr. Lucky   8/14/2006   A Library

Old time DJ Lone Ranger (aka Anthony Waldron) bubbles over on this Studio 1 collection. Like many other classic DJ’s LR first came on the scene under C. Dodd’s wing, for whom he voiced the hit ‘Love Bump?. He would eventually record ‘Barnabas Collins?, a huge tune under GG Ranglin, which topped charts in JA and UK in 1980. This ranking DJ is in top form on this collection of Studio 1 tunes voiced between ’85 and ’89. The tracks are a blend of classic and digital Studio 1 riddims. He covers a variety of subjects, but never loses his sense of humor. The energy that made him a dancehall favorite translates well in these tracks, such as the ‘oinks? and ‘ribbits? that would go on to be imitated by scores of other DJ’s. Rrrright! Mr. Lucky
