Attack 12'' Releases 1979-81
Roots - Lovers Rock - Dancehall
Attack Records, a subsiduary of Trojan, switched from 7'' to 12'' format 1979 - early-1981. Mix of roots, lovers rock and plenty of the emerging roots-dancehall style of the day. Producer like LINVAL THOMPSON, FATMAN, DENNIS BOVELL, CHANNEL ONE, NOEL BAILEY & BARRINGTON LEVY. Vocal and dub versions with deejay vibes from Trinity, Jah Thomas and 2 uncredited MCs (anyone have any ideas?). Two superb extended sides from Sowell Roots. Ashanti Waugh combines elements of Bobby Babylon and D Brown's Yagga Yagga on Babylon Wrong. Dave Richards' Colour of the Rainbow is another highlight.
Continuous mix. 237 mins.
