one of the greats arrives
Linton Kwesi Johnson was one of the greats of eighties British reggae, a complex artist in a time of much greater optimism and hope about our collective future than we're used to now. His first three island recordings are must haves for reggae lovers and thinking rebels alike. So why go for the instrumental dubs of a poet? His voice isn't even part of this music. Ah, but his sensibility is, and this is great dub. Listen to it and write your own poetry for it.
