Deadly vocal & versions 2lp on Greensleeves –
Originally issued as ‘Scientist Encounters Pacman at Channel One’ in the early 80’s – Scientist is of course still responsible for those deadly dubs on the second disc, but this 2016 reissue comes with a deserved credit for the often overlooked producer (and vocal) talents of Linval Thompson, who had his finger in a lot of good pies in Kingston.
For the first time, this release features both vocals and versions together in one package, across two discs.
Linval Thompson is known mainly as a vocalist who earned his stripes in the foundation years and continues to do so over many more years.
But as well as working behind the microphone, he has worked with the greatest voices in reggae music to this day, and a big heap of his productions would’ve been recorded with the one-and-only Roots Radics Band and later dubbed off by none other than King Tubby’s young engineer and genius on the mixing desk in his own right: ‘Scientist’.
Featuring classic vocal cuts from the Linval Thompson himself along peers such as Eek-E-Mouse, The Meditations, Dennis Brown and The Viceroys, it’s a great opportunity to hear these classics along with their respective Scientist dubs, all compiled on a very good-looking 2LP.
Remastered and presented with big foldout poster.
