Phil Pratt Thing

CD (Item 619840) Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


4.90 18

While some of the other reggae labels are focusing on more well known producers like Bunny Lee, Pressure Sounds has put together this great tribute to a lesser known name in Jamaican music, Phil Pratt. But if you look at the list of singers and players here, you can see he was no lightweight, even though he may not be a household name. The cuts have a deep soulful sound, but still ride crowd moving rhythms in the way that the best reggae tracks always have, whether a more up tempo stepper's rhythm or a lover's groover. 14 cuts, with versions of some of the tracks, including 2 voiced by the great Ken Boothe "I'm Not For Sale" & "Ain't No Love", the Heptones dancefloor groover "Party time", Dillinger's "Talk About Love" in a full 12" discomix and Big Youth chatting on "Keep Your Dread" & the title track. CD includes 4 bonus tracks: the Sunshot Bands' "Roots Raw" & "Shackles Dis Ya Dub", Bobby Kalphat's "counter Punch" and Dillinger's "Big Score".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Truly one of the most essential reggae albums of all time, and without a doubt one of our top dub albums. While we may be known for our hyperbolic comments on LPs here at Dusty, this album is very much deserving of the praise, and if you don't own it, you need to. Basically a collection of dubs ... CD
