Noel “Junior” Delahaye was an engineer on classic Wackies recordings like Horace Andy’s Dance Hall Style, and he also recorded a brilliant LP of his own for the label, simply titled Showcase. The whole album is dope (especially the working-class theme “Working Hard For The Rent Man”) but it’s hard not to start with the opening track “Love,” with its distinctive organ melody on the Hammond B3. —Jesse Serwer
