The late, great Glen Augustus Holness-better known as Nitty Gritty-is perhaps best remembered for his work with King Jammys during the mid-eighties at the height of the producer’s dominance. Turbo Charged would be the first of six full length releases from the singer along with a slew of seven-inches and Disco45s that made him one of Dancehall’s most beloved entertainers until his tragic death in June of 1991. After a long running series of solid reissue-efforts Greensleeves has updated the Turbo Charged album with all ten original LP cuts plus four bonus tracks from past Greensleeves 12″s (bonus tracks are "Man in a House", "False Alarm, "Run Down the World" and "Gimme Some of Your Something". You can pick up the Turbo Charged reissue here or here.
