40 Year Itch : Chatty Chatty Mouth

The Gladiators : Chatty Chatty Mouth

Along with the Abyssinians's Satta Masa Gana and Max Romeo's War Ina Babylon, The Gladiators's Trenchtown Mix Up makes up the trifecta of must-have 1976 reggae albums.

This Jamaican roots reggae vocal group was among the acts signed up by Virgin in a blitz that followed the success of Bob Marley and the Wailers.  (They also picked up Dillinger who had a hit with "Cocaine in the Brain" and The Mighty Diamonds, whose Right Time is also an essential reggae album).
