For almost 20 years, the Kingston based June Chan a.k.a. Sister Chin has been an essential bridge between Japan and Jamaica. She has actively created cross-cultural communication between sound systems and artists from the two island countries by providing booking, links, introductions and most important, a generous heart. In addition, her guest houses in Jamaica and Brooklyn have always acted as a headquarters for Japanese reggae fans eager to learn about Jamaican culture. Following the tragic earthquake and tsunami, Jun-Chan reached out to some of her favorite artists to record a song of inspiration and healing. The result is the single "Starting Over" featuring Bunny Wailer, Carl Dawkins, Cocoa Tea, John Holt, Jr Reid, Josey Wales, Half Pint, Ken Booth, Luciano, Marcia Griffith, Tabby Diamond, Yellow Man, U Roy, Triston Palmer and Pinchers. This is a collectors piece (limited to 700) pressed on colored vinyl with all proceeds from its sale going to aid the victims of the earthquake and tsunami.
We here at Deadly Dragon are honored to support this record and we hope all of you will support it as well.
