About Ranking Joe :

Born Joseph Jackson in Kingston on 1st June 1959, Joe got his start on record with the founding father of Jamaican music, producer Coxsone Dodd (Studio 1), cutting “Gun Court” in 1975 as Little Joe. He then recorded for a variety of producers including Bunny Lee, Watty Burnett and former African Brother Derrick Howard. By 1976 he was deejaying on the legendary sound system of Daddy U-Roy, Stur-Gav Hi-Fi, and recording for producer Prince Tony Robinson. His first album for that producer was released in 1977 and included hits like “John Saw Them Coming” and “Queen Majesty Chapter 3”. He continued to deejay with U-Roy’s set, building up a formidable reputation as a live deejay. He began recording hits for Sonia Pottinger (“Shine Eye Gal” 1978) and was the first deejay to record for Sly & Robbie’s Taxi label when he versioned Gregory Isaacs’ hit “Soon Forward” (“Stop Your Coming & Come” in 1978).
