Dreader Dread 1976 to 1978

CD (Item 683500) Blood & Fire (UK), Late 70s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock



Johnny Clarke has always been one of our favorite Jamaican vocalists, king of the dancehall in his day as he was – though this set brings together his more conscious roots numbers. Like many other releases on the Blood & Fire label, the work here focuses on Bunny Striker Lee's productions, and with good reason – clearly always on the cutting edge, and coaxing many truly great performances from his singers & players. When you see Striker Lee's name on the label, you know it's heavy! "In the Roots of the Ghetto", "Every Knee Shall Bow" and "Roots Natty" are unstoppable, included here with 10 more cuts, a number of them in extended versions!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Out of print.)

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.

Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
