Vybz Kartel Kingston Story Vinyl Record | Vinyl LP AlbumOf all the remarkable talents to arise form the dancehalls of Kingston, Jamaica, few have proved more compelling or controversial than Adidja Palmer, better known as Vybz Kartel. Revered on the streets of the ghetto garrisons, he has also been reviled as a scourge on society, both for this unadultered lyrics and his unapologetic lifestyle. One thing nobody contests is that Vybz Kartel stands head and shoulders above his peers as a lyrical genius.
After breaking into the music business by penning hits for artists like Bounty Killer, he eventually decided to record for himself and has come back to dominate Jamaica's music scene, emerging as the genre's biggest trendsetter.
Kingston Story was produced by Brooklyn-based producer Dre Skull and released on his independent label Mixpak Records in digital form only. Now Kingston Story begins a new chapter, being re-released by Vice in a deluxe double gatefold vinyl edition with two never-before-heard bonus tracks.

Customer Reviews for Kingston Story

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!
180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP
These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectables, commanding a higher price.
Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
