about

Recorded at Hilversum Studios (VPRO), Netherlands

In 1980 G.T. Moore spent several weeks in Jamaica, recording with some of the top artists of the country. Working with "proper" reggae musicians for him was very liberating. Particularly in Channel One playing with Sly and Robbie. When he got back he wanted to continue that.

He didn't want to acknowledge the world of rock and pop but concentrate on an authentic Jamaican sound with original melodies, a strong driving beat and free flowing soloists.

This was recorded in '82 when the band had gigs in Holland and recorded this set at Radio 1 Hilversum.
