Dread Operator From the On U Sound Archives: Produced By Adrian Sherwood (CD)

$ 29.99


Release Date: 08/06/21

Hot Milk is back with a crucially wicked box set of some of the most forward thinking and experimental reggae of the early 80's.

Inside you'll find four studio albums from Adrian Sherwood's On-U Sound label, including the fourth installment of the Singers & Players series, two Creation Rebel albums and the other planetary compilation of industrial reggae experiments, Wild Paarty Sounds Vol.1.

Released in 1984 'Leaps & Bounds' by the collective known as Singers & Players features vocal contributions from Prince Far I (who was murdered the previous year), Congo Ashanti Roy (famed for his work with The Congos), Mikey Dread and Bim Sherman with the addition on the players side of the likes of the Roots Radics as well as Deadly Headley on sax making this album a who's who of early 80's reggae and a fine follow up to the previous Singers & Players records.

1981's 'Threat To Creation' is a Creation Rebel/New Age Steppers double billing. Probably the most daring dub album to emerge from the UK, this is the nexus where reggae and post punk collide. There's too much cloud and soot for this to be a 100% Jamaican affair, its dark and brooding pulsations mixes Caribbean beats with vibrations from the dark satanic mills.

Coming out of 1982, Creation Rebel's 'Lows & Highs' featuring vocals from Crucial Tony and Lizard Logan is the most straight ahead reggae album in the box. One for those less experimentally minded, Style Scott lays down the beats next to Eskimo Fox and Donald Campbell and Deadly Headley blows away on his horns yet again. Includes the bonus track 'Read And Learn', the B-side from the 'Love I Can Feel' 7' single.
