Linval Thompson - Cool Down LPLabel: Clocktower (Canada)
Regular price $15.98
2018 repress. Channel One recordings from 1974-6. With Robbie Shakespeare, "Chinner" Smith, Tony Chin, Ossie Hibbert, Agustus Pablo, Tommy McCook, etc. "Bunny Lee's 'flying cymbal' production dominates the session and consequently the listener might recognize several of these cuts from dub compilations on Blood & Fire. Generally speaking, though, this is not a dub record. Only the last song on each side is followed by a dub version. These are straight-ahead rockers with no frills and, depending on the pressing, rather muddy production. It is also worth mentioning that 'Money Money' and 'Blood Gonna Run,' among others, find Robbie Shakespeare at his slippery and infectious best. Serious basslines throughout." -- AMG.
