The Revolutionaries - Channel One Disco Purpose
Killer late 70s style roots rockers music from one of the tuffest bands out of Jamaica - the original Channel One house band, The Revolutionaries.
Featuring all sorts of star players, from Sly & Robbie to Scully, Tommy McCook, Ansel Collins.
If we're not mistaken (need to dig it out and listen back), we have an older pressing of these tunes on a 12" with the titles 'Toothache' 'Bellyache' etc some years ago, and we always cherished this record for it's heavy-impact roots sound.
Here on this disc we got Addis Ababa, Marcus Version, Social Development Version, and One Brother Short Version. Four tunes on a 12", each one cut loud and heavy, ready to uplift in fine style as soon as you drop the needle.
Here on this Channel One / Archive related Well Charge reissue, the track titles are themed differently, but strong track names still remain, and the music sounds top-a-top all the while.
Essential roots rock reggae business from some of the greatest to ever do it.
Served in a tasty Well Charge sleeve design, pressed up on 12".
