Linval Thompson – Jah Jah Dreader Than Dread (Extended Mix) (1978)

Working my way through a pile of Trojan Records Box Sets over the last few days, I stumbled upon this stone cold classic. Effectively the original and dub versions spliced together.

Six minutes of relentless roots reggae with unbelievable bass and guitar. Linval’s vocals just soar and perfection is attained. Impossible to play too loud unless your house has dodgy foundations.

I have the complete collection of Blood & Fire and Pressure Sounds CDs and there is not really a bad one among the 150+ releases ….. The 71 (I have 66!) Trojan Box Sets are a little less consistent but remain an absolute treasure trove of reggae gold and I’ve already posted a couple of tracks (both by Ronnie Davis) from other releases here and here.

Turn up loud.
