Information

An excellent compilation of Horace Andy material from the early seventies. Produced by Phil Pratt and only ever previously released in Jamaica. 16 tracks on the CD and 14 on the single vinyl. Horace Andys soulful distinctive vocals float over driving rhythms. Pratt's own talents as a singer meant he could supply the harmonies as well as the production. Horace Andy was arguably at his peak during this period. Fresh from his brilliant work at Studio One 'Get Wise' has a mixture of love songs and conscious material. Comes with a free postcard when you buy direct from Pressure Sounds. A joy from start to finish.

  • Wailers - Guided MissileWailersGuided Missile

    Drum machine led roots. There is a strong Lee Perry influence on this one. Not quite as over the top as Scratchs productions but never the less a good tune.
