Best of Prince Lincoln Thompson - Revolutionary Man



Prince Lincoln Thompson Tribute 

Revolutionary Man - the best of... 

Love The Way It Should Be
Paying homage one of my favorite artists, the late, great Prince Lincoln. Brings together some of the best songs from throughout his solo career (1976-1997). Multi-instrumentalist Thompson is best known for deep, profound and slightly unusual roots music. Hit tunes Kingston 11 & Humanity (Neville King) have long been grassroots blues party killers complete with stunning version sides. Lincoln started out in rocksteady group The Tartans before passing through Studio One, starting his own label (God Sent) in the mid-70s and moving into self-production. Despite being signed up by Ballistic and then United Artists wider success eluded him as he trod his own path, making a total of only 6 vocal albums with a smattering of singles on God Sent into the 1990s. Similar in style and substance to Roy Cousins & The Royals, Rasses music also takes a little time to penetrate but enters deeper and deeper into the conscience with each play. I wore out two of his lps (True Experience & Rootsman Blues) back in my youth. 

Continuous mix 2 hours

Features several self-releases and collaborations with Daddy Freddie, Prince Jammy and fellow Tartans members Cedric Myton & Devon Russell. Covers of Bob Andy's Revelation and Bob Marley's African Herbman, Jah Live & Want More. All three of his amazing Studio One recordings are here.
