Jah Shaka was a London-based sound-system man Jah Shaka ran a prolific Reggae label called Jah Shaka Music in the 1980s and '90s, but he apparently dipped a toe into the record market some years earlier in the form of an anonymous rendering of the Ben E. King classic 'Stand By Me' b/w 'Stand By Shaka Dubs' (F-1; 1974). The singer may have been Albert Griffiths or Albert Tomlinson. It was produced by Winston Edwards of Fay Music Inc. and was presumably released through his label, which would account for the catalogue number's 'F' prefix, the two men worked out of the same premises at that time. There doesn't appear to have been an F-2; subsequent Edwards productions came out on Fay Music Inc. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
