Linval Thompson – the Trojan Roots Albums Collection 2cd
Dubbel cd op Doctor Bird met een drietal roots platen uit de tweede helft van de jaren ’70 met Linval Thompson produkties, opgenomen voor Channel One. Twee platen met dj’s, eentje van hemzelf en aangevuld met bonus werk. ‘Having already made his mark as one of the island’s premier roots performers, the singer-songwriter launched his Thompson Sound label in 1977, finding immediate success with a series of best-selling recordings, all produced at Kingston’s revered Channel One studio. Among the artistes to benefit from his talents as a producer were leading dee-jays, Big Joe and Trinity, whose work spawned two popular long- players, African Princess and Rock In The Ghetto. Released by Trojan Records in 1978 and 1979, respectively, both of these lauded collections finally see their official reissue with this 2CD set, which also includes Thompson’s own best-selling album, I Love Marijuana, and ten bonus tracks.’ Hier het titelnummer van de African Princess plaat van Big Joe.
