Nicodemus - Nuff Respect

There is a great album available for download at Distinctly Jamaican Sounds: Nicodemus - Nuff Respect.
Nicodemus recorded "Nuff Respect" for producer Kenneth Black on the Skengdon label in 1986 and includes his hit "Suzy Wong" - all backing tracks provided by the Fat Man Riddim Section. I'm nearly positive this album has never been released on CD or made readily available with a re-issue so I hope you enjoy it.
I'm sad to learn from this post that Nicodemus died in 1996 from diabetes complications. His confident, friendly, usually unhurried patter has been one of my favorite vocal flows in all of reggae/dancehall music since I first heard his classic Boneman Connection.

Yeah, nice one! Cool mix of Roots / Digi dub. Check his lyrics taken from Grandmaster Flash's 'The Message' at the end of 'Mr. Fabulous'! Extremely relaxed cover too! Yes I! :)

Yeah, I love this cover. Nicodemus looks just about as friendly and relaxed as could be. Humble but still proud, maybe...
