The Kong Konnection


Leslie Kong seems to have been one of the better JA producers to work with, it's rumoured he paid ontime & at a good rate so he was favoured by consistantly good performances for his unusually loyal artists these included Derrick Morgan, Desmond Dekker & The Maytals to name a few ,all the tunes on this compilation were released in the UK on the Pyramid label which had no JA counterpart.Leslie only released tunes on the Beverley's label in JA unlike his counterparts who released tunes on a variety of their own labels.
