By Judson Kilpatrick

Published June 22, 2006

A major force in reggae music for the past thirty years (and still very much involved today), "Gussie" Clarke released this instrumental album back in 1977. A rather limited edition on his own Roots Sounds label, it was virtually impossible to find outside of Jamaica then, never mind over two decades later.  Thankfully, it's been reissued with three very welcome extra tracks: the extended mix of Augustus Pablo's "No Entry" and lovely dubs of Gregory Isaacs' versions of "Loving Pauper" and "My Time." In fact, many of the rhythms here will be familiar to fans of classic reggae. Mixed mainly by King Tubby and Phillip Smart, they include Gussie's remake of Dawn Penn's "No, No, No (You Don't Love Me)" which featured the little-known K.C. White. Like Ken Boothe, Gussie covered Syl Johnson's "Is It Because I'm Black?" with Delroy Wilson providing the vocals. There's also a xylophone version of K.C. White's remake of The Temptations' "Born To Love You." It's all great stuff and the sound quality is excellent. Any fan of classic dub should definitely pick this one up.
