• barrington levy Poor Man Style (LP, £18.75)

    label: Clocktower

    Some of Barrington Levy's most significant (and enduring) recordings from Channel One Studio, mixed by Scientist. In late 1979, Levy's spare, hauntingly arranged early singles completely overtook Jamaican dancehalls and streetside sound clashes. By the time Levy released 'Poor Man Style' in 1982, he was arguably Jamaica's preeminent vocalist. 'Poor Man Style' features a set of punishing rhythms from the crack studio outfit The Roots Radics, with production work from singer turned label owner Linval Thompson and former King Tubby protégé Scientist.
