All killer lp of chilled, dread fuelled versions of King Tubby's classic Tempo riddim. Dancehall saviour of Studio One, and co-architect of Black Victory, Wackies legend Sugar Minott himself picks up the mic, kicking off the imperious Tempo Explosion version-excursion, and on the final Black Victory release, the single Sheriff John Brown, a driving sufferers cliffhanger about bent cops and going on the run. Black Roots Players, Jerry Johnson, Willie Williams, Chris Wayne and Ras Menlik Dacosta also supply unique versions of the Red Rose classic.
One of the best one-riddim lp's of all time. A meticulous, mesmerising mix of electronic and analogue techniques. Quality.
