sylford walker Lamb's Bread (CD, £9.75)label: greensleeves
Sylford Walker's heart-stopping '70s recordings for Glen Brown are rightfully regarded like holy relics of reggae. The Lamb's Bread album gathers up these classic sides and once again makes them available to the roots disciples. Mixed by King Tubby at King Tubby's, recorded at Randy's, Channel One, Federal & Harry J's with Jamaica's finest musicians on board (Flabba Holt, Family Man, Carlton Barrett, Tommy McCook) Lamb's Bread is the quintessential sound of 1970's Jamaica, an album so full of roots you may have to scrape the mud off your turntable after playing.
