Life Goes In Circles: Sounds From The Talent Corporation 1974-1979
Pressure Sounds

By Matt Scheiner

Published August 16, 2007

Compilations are too often thrown together without much thought, but Pressure Sounds’ Life Goes In Circles is a carefully assembled representation of a brilliant half-decade. Tommy Cowan began as a singer for the group the Jamaicans and later became involved with Byron Lee at Dynamic Studios, where he licensed music from U.S. labels like Atlantic, Motown and Columbia for Jamaica. In 1974, feeling that Jamaican music was taking a cultural back seat to the “foreign” records he was releasing, Cowan founded the Talent Corporation with Warwick Lyn and Gayman Alberga, to help promote and manage reggae stars. This back-story is the glue that fuses these classic tracks together. From Devon Irons’ “Jerusalem” and the Abyssinians’ “Love Comes and Goes” to Leroy Smart’s “The Road is Rough” and Earl Zero’s “Please Officer,” this compilation never disappoints.
