straight reissue of the Thompson Sound LP from the late 90s it seems. bit of a shame to see this somewhat haphazard collection (and that not-great photo of Barry also from the late 90s) re-appear rather than a more carefully curated comp. of the Linval produced material. couple of the best tunes are missing, and at least one (but i think more as well IIRC) of the songs on the TS LP are just earlier tunes re-titled.
still, better to see material like this be available again regardless. big up hotmilk sameway. sorry to be critical, but BB is my favorite artist!

Didn't catch it first time around, not seen it anywhere before. I was struck the other day by just how much Barry Brown I own, so guess it's foregone that I will be buying this

Barry Brown - The Thompson Sound 1979-82 (Hot Milk) CD

Final release of an album recorded with producer Linval Thompson way back in the early eighties, but never released at the time due to one thing or another. Featuring the late Barry Brown, head-top youth singer supreme, atop a selection of fine Roots Radics rhythms, many familiar from other better known cuts, recorded at Channel One and mixed at King Tubby's with Scientist at the controls.

Track listing:

1. Please Officer
2. Please Officer (Version)
3. Ketch A Fire
4. Can't Stop Natty Dread
5. It Rough My Brother
6. Mount Zion
7. Free Dreadlocks
8. Don't Mess With Natty Dread
9. You Don't Know Who To Trust
10. You Don't Know Who To Trust (Version)
11. Life Is So Funny
12. Love Jah So
13. Love Jah So (Version)
13. Love Is Pure

So was this released or unreleased?

don't know if it wasn't released when it was thought to be released back in the late 70s/early 80s but it did see light as RB states in the late 90s as Thompson Sound: http://www.discogs.com/Barry-Brown-Barr ... se/2322880

could be it haven't been released on CD before though.

Anyone get a hold of the Record Store Day 7" box set of this? Curious about the sound quality before I lay down US $45 for it ;)

I got the RSD set. It is very impressively done in terms of the packaging. And they made different Hot Milk labels for each 7", which I thought was going the extra mile. Very handsome. I admit it's gimmicky, like most RSD releases. But I think it was worth the price.

Oh, you asked about sound. I'd say the sound is good. I doubt anyone would be disappointed with it.

Thanks for the reply flashman, I'll probably pick it up. The combination of artist/producer/period in that format is too good to pass up. Need to add some reggae this year to my haul of Grateful Dead RSD releases :)

Does anyone have the Barry Brown Album Called Barry Brown On Thompson sound vinyl LP what is sound quality like? Is It good On The Thompson sound Lp or crackly and hissy pressing ? Or are some presses better then others? Anybody own the Lp on Thompson sounds?, Was curious as the 7inch boxset released for record store day was said to be of very good sound quality along with the c.d. released by Hot Milk Label. Anbody know if they were remastered by Hotmilk before being released is there any info on the maybe re-mastering of the C.D. album and the 7inch boxset?

The Thompson Sound LP isn't noisy or crackly, however it have quite a long playing time so the sound is a bit flat. Not too bad but i'm sure it sounds a lot better on 45s...

Sound leaves nothing to be desired. But I just noticed one strange anomaly. Out of all the 7's, one side, Ketch a Fire, runs at 33 rpm rather then 45. In keeping with random quality issues typical of reggae releases. Wonder if it was done on purpose, tongue in cheek? :-)
Update: just realized it's probably just that the running time of that tune is too long to fit on 45.
