V.A. - DUG OUT PRESENTS: TEMPO EXPLOSION (LP)


"Moving between New York and Kingston, Jamaica, in the mid-to-late-1980s, the revered Black Victory label is a perfect storm, crossing the sainted ranks and deep lineages of Studio One and Bullwackies, together with the first, most celebrated strikes of the digital revolution in reggae. Here is its key album: a devastating, chilled, dread run on King Tubby's Tempo rhythm, and surely the greatest one-rhythm LP of all time, with the very greatest versions of the Red Rose classic. (Wackies artist Leslie Moore's sleeve design compares its intensity with nuclear testing in Nevada, so you know you're in trouble even before the needle drops.)" (label info)
