Vintage lovers rock hits on the Wild Flower label
Collection of smooth 7'' 45s released by Paul & Richard Khouri in the 1970s. Classic lovers tunes line up with some comic and light-hearted slackness from the likes of Pluto Shervington, Lord Laro, Lovindeer & Charlie Ace, as well as a couple of reggae gospel songs. Big-name Wild Flower regulars like Ken Boothe, Ernie Smith, Marcia Griffiths, Boris Gardiner, Pluto and Lloyd Charmers are joined by a host of lesser known artists. Productions from Lloyd Charmers, Derrick Harriott, Lee Perry and Donkey as well as the Khouri brothers' own works.
A large number of Wild Flower 7s came into my possession a few years ago as well as a couple of irie LPs which i duly ripped so this anthology is built around them. Some of these selections were also released in the UK on the Trojan/Horse imprints. A Wild Flower roots selection soon come...
