Forces Of Victory

LP (Item 35923) Mango, 1979 — Condition: Very Good

The second album From LKJ, a tough and tight follow up to Dread Beat and Blood, with the poet coming just as hard out the box this time around as the first. Johnson's righteous lyrical indignation, terse delivery, and rhythmic focus dovetail perfectly with tight, fat riddims from a crack band headed up by Dennis Bovell and Vivian Weathers. 8 choice numbers in all, including a batch of LKJ classics like "It Noh Funny", "Sonny's Lettah", "Independent Intavenshan", "Fite Dem Back", "Reality Poem" and "Forces of Vicktry", plus "Want Fi Goh Rave" and "Time Come".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(US pressing. Cover has some wear.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Bass Culture
Mango, 1980. Near Mint-
Bass Culture, but way more than that too – as the album is a classic kernel of wisdom from the great Linton Kwesi Johnson – done up in the mix of spoken and sung passages that always made his records so unique!

Struggle
Solomonic (Jamaica), 1978. Very Good
A monster roots side from Bunny Wailer, one of the monumental LPs he cut in the late 70s. By this point, he had really hit his stride as a solo artist in his own right, delivering material that was equal to what he had recorded with the Wailers, and every bit as righteous as Marley and Tosh's solo ...
