Produced by Linton Kwesi Johnson and the legendary Dennis Bovell ('Blackbeard'), the album is a fierce, politically-charged view of Britain at the time.The music however is both highly accessible and experimental, going beyond traditional reggae arrangements to include free jazz and avant-garde elements.Remastered at Abbey Road, released on heavyweight coloured vinyl:
GREEN for Bass Culture / RED for LKJ In Dub.Features expanded artwork in a bespoke gatefold sleeve.Both albums out of print on vinyl for years.Includes download card.
