Contradiction in Sound

Postby matty-j » Mon Apr 19, 2010 9:50 pm

All the following singles were released between 1976 and 1978 in the UK and illustrate to some extent the conflicting vibes to be found within the reggae scene at the time. From deep Jamaican roots and the often equally deep UK version to the sweet sound of Lovers Rock via the regular sounds of Jamaica's biggest hitmakers of the time, you never quite knew what was in store when attending a family function. Unlike todays revive dances, the genre wasn't quite so focused on a narrow range of styles unless you went to a 'rasta' dance.

All credits are as per the record labels although some are certainly wrong, and I haven't messed about with anything much - the peculiar mix of the Levi tune is as cut into the plastic. Apologies for the noise on the African Brothers but it has seen better days. All original 7-inch and nothing expensive !
