Classic D.I.A/JameKee/Dollar Bill label 12 inch vinyl: Dance In Brooklyn by Doctor being sold for USA$125.

US$125.00 For D.I.A/JameKee/Dollar Bill label DISCOGS' 12" Vinyl 331/3 rpm EP Listings: Side A: 1. 'Dance In Brooklyn' on the dirty and crusty original 'Megatron Rock' rhythm, 2. 'Gwaan Doctor' on 'Venom Dub' rhythm; Side B: 1. 'Megatron Rock', 2. 'Venom Dub' dubs. Songs were recorded by NYC-based deejay Doctor (not to be confused with Early B) in 1986. Doctor's ep was was released/published in 1986. It is amazing how "vinyl pushers" are hustling this 12" vinyl online for US$76 to $125. Insanely cool! There is quite a few boxes on hand in mint shrink-wrapped condition around here yuh nuh (you know). Only Doctor and Bobby Culture were released on Dollar Bill label. The metaphor for 'Dollar Bill' label was everybody has at least one dollar -- therefore, "everyone should own recordings released on the Dollar Bill label," said Doctor aka M. Downer. "Crucially 'crabbit!'" Plus it was great to use the USA dollar bill as concept since "they" said we could not because it would be considered counterfeiting.

D.I.A/JameKee/Dollar Bill never claimed to have published or released a big catalog. In comparison to other labels only a few titles were released. What is big is runnin' circles around major and indie labels and definitely grassroots labels regarding artist, product and label development. Anybody can record and put out a record. That is easy. Only a few can sell a record especially on an unknown label. So as far as a foot-print, D.I.A/JameKee/Dollar Bill biggah dan dem (bigger than them). Light-years ahead!!!

D.I.A/JameKee/Dollar Bill never claimed to be a major label either as couple disgruntle and clueless poser-haters alluded to. Marketing-wise even for the first release, DIA/JameKee adopted some of the marketing plans of major and standout indie labels; and why not, especially to develop a brand or label that consumers will be familiar with on a wider scale than the NYC mom and pop record stores. From an indie perspective, these campaigns really never stop. Reggae-wise only few labels such as RAS, Mango, Shanachie, Heartbeat/Rounder, etc., in the USA were doing label and product development campaigns which ultimately spin-off into artist development for related artists (regardless of exclusive contracts or not). All the Jamaican-related "reggae" labels including Studio One, Randy's, Clocktower, etc., were just printing about 300 records they hacked unit-by-unit over their one-stop counters. Note that printing a one-time run of 300 records is one of the main reasons why reggae vinyl is so widely collected. There is a supply and demand in full effect for good recordings always. Over time competitive demands organically established some artists, producers and labels as legendary icons even if only one recording was released.

Hey yo! Come here you -- a record label is not a label unless at least one record on vinyl was released dude.
