Glen Brown / Various - Boat To Progress: The Vocal Collection 1972-74 (Greensleeves) LP

Track Listing / Description Greensleeves reissue the three classic compilations of music produced by the rebel producer Glenmore Brown, originally put together by Chris Lane and issued in 1989 with sleeve notes from Ian McCann and housed in great Tony McDermott collage sleeves. These LP's came as revelations to many reggae fans on their initial release. Up until then Glen Brown's productions from the early seventies had only been available on 7" Jamaican imports, a few titles scattered on UK reggae labels such as Green Door or Techniques. For those who had acquired his releases on his Pantomine label Brown's world was revealed as highly inventive, if not downright eccentric, with rhythms used and re-used for myriad vocal, instrumental and deejay interpretaions, labels swapped and over-printed, A and B sides juggled and labels bedecked with mysterious acronyms. As for the music, it is among the best of its time. Brown employing the top session men of the day and using the hottest studios to produce his rhythm tracks, often completing the final mixes at King Tubby's studio, to finish with a qiuntessentially heavy drum and bass sound that those in the know regard as a towering pinnacle of reggae music. This collection gathers together the best of the singers who recorded for Brown, including himself. Essential._x000D__x000D_Track Listing:_x000D_Side 1:_x000D__x000D_1.
