As Beatlemania approached its peak, Jamaican music was undergoing a
transition that started with ska, and then morphed into rocksteady,
before assuming its ultimate form as reggae. Inevitably these cultures
collided, with artists such as the Paragons and Marcia Griffiths
establishing a tradition of creating dynamic reggae covers of the
Beatles’ hits that continues to this day. This album extends this
lineage, as some of the best reggae Reggae artists set out on a series
of version excursions that include some of the Fab Four’s best loved
bitter-sweet cuts. Released on 180m gram RED vinyl.

Sax player Prince Lincoln Thompson and his Royal Rasses - Keith Perkins
(aka Cap) and Clinton Hall (aka Johnny Kool) - joined forces for this
one in 1979. It's a definitive roots and reggae album with perfectly
horizontal sound and deep cut grooves into which you can sink over and
over again. The lyrics touch on standard reggae fair - love, jah, pain -
and are effortlessly smooth and seductive over the organic, jumbled
rhythms, The reissue has extensive sleeve notes and comes on yellow
vinyl with engineering and mixing at Harry J. Studio.

The third Singers & Players album from 1983, with the collective continuing to include the likes of Bim Sherman and Prince Far I, but also welcoming new members into the fold such as Mikey Dread, famous for his Dread At The Controls radio program on JBC, and collaboration with The Clash on their Sandinista! album.
Rated by many to be the pinnacle in their catalogue, this third album from 1983 saw the reggae collective really hitting their stride. On microphone duties, Prince Far I and Bim Sherman are joined by Mikey Dread (fresh from his work with The Clash) and Ashanti Roy (The Congos) for a truly heavyweight line-up. Voicing killer rhythms laid down by members of the Dub Syndicate and Roots Radics, this is a landmark recording in the mutated UK version of dub. Contains the classic On-U tracks “Bedward The Flying Preacher” and “Snipers In The Streets”.
