Rockfort Psychedelion

Rockfort Psychedelion


Information

A double A side release. Count Sticky's scat vocals on the A side roll over a Memphis style backing that was all the rage in Kingston at the time these recordings were made. 'What a Sound' exclaims Count Sticky and he is right. Rockfort was a particularly tough Kingston neighborhood. The idea of being on psychedelics there is pretty far out!!!

The B other side is a fantastic funky instrumental featuring the top session player Val Bennett and is a cut of 'Django Shoots First'. This has all the inventive Perry Sound injections that are on many of his best recordings. Each record come in a hand stamped bag.

    Michael Rose re-works 'Willow Tree'. Still sounds fresh. King Jammy has done a good job of up-dating this Black Uhuru pearl. Nice dub on the flip.

    Michael Rose's distinctive tone gets on a re-working of Yabby's a King Pharoah's Plague rhythm. Nicely done by King Jammy and comes with a nice dub on the flipside. Excellent.
