This tour of his 1960-76 output has too many novelties and covers – stick with Louis Jordan’s version of What’s the Use of Getting Sober. And rap-battle fans should hear the uproarious head-to-head with Lord Melody, Picong Duel. You have a facelike a crocodile, Sparrow taunts, while Melody offers a right hookin your belly – delivered with a laugh.
