BIG man ‘Touch’ dropping ‘bombs’.
Critique of 2020 #2
A scathing critique of colonialism from master Peter Tosh. His vocal cut of Tommy Mc Cook and the Destroyers ‘Ah So’ released by Joe Gibbs on his ‘Shock’ Label in 1971.
A cut of The legendary Abyssinians ‘Satta’ Rhythm, (originally recorded at the home of Jamaican music Sir Coxsone’s imperious Brentford road powerhouse … Studio 1)
The Abyssinians purchased the master tapes from Coxsone and released ‘Satta’ on their own ‘Clinch’ label in 1971 and the rest is Reggae history.
‘Satta’ was in itself a loose version of Carlton (Manning) & his Shoes ‘Happy Land’, (the Abyssinians consisted of Bernard Collins and ‘Shoe’ two brothers Donald and Lynford).
