Product Description

Barry Brown paid his dues running errands and being a constant presence around the West Kingston recording studios before getting his break under the guidance of Bunny Lee. Brown would go on to release a string of singles and albums with Lee throughout the late 70's, before going on to work with other producers such as Sugar Minott, King Jammy and Linval Thompson amongst many others. Produced by Linval Thompson (whose voice was uncannily similar to Barry Browns), this album contains a couple of singles and versions recorded in 1979 as well as an albums worth of material from 1981-1982 that was shelved at the time due a perceived over-saturation of Barry Brown material doing the rounds. Many tracks on CD for the first time ever. Produced by Linval Thompson, recorded at Channel One, mixed at King Tubbys by Scientist, rhythms by the Roots Radics. This is a must have for those who like their conscious roots reggae backed with that heavy driving early 80's Radics sound. An essential edition to the Barry Brown catalogue.

Shame it had no bonus tracks, missed opportunity, it could have be a killer with no filler, but just re-issued as it came out as an LP. so plenty of space on the CD.
