    CD/MP3/LP

    Chef, singer, record producer, owner of 10 record labels and father of 17 children, Phil Pratt is one of the more unusual and elusive characters in Jamaican music. Responsible for some crucial rocksteady sides in the ‘60s, Phil went on to produce some of the best roots music to come out of Jamaica, including huge hits like Artibella and My Heart Is Gone. But since relocating from Kingston, his focus has mostly been on cooking, and his headquarters has been the Scandal restaurant in West London, where his signature dishes are Oxtail Stew and Lobster Curry.
    On the menu with 'Dub in Blood' we have some top draw versions mixed at Channel One. Sleevenotes are from Diggory Kenrick.
