In the last few shows, I've been stretching out more and focusing on artists that didn't grab my attention right away. Al Campbell was one of those artists. I had a few things from him, but hadn't listened to it too much and I didn't really know his work. For this show, I went through his tunes and put together a selection of the ones that caught my attention.
You'll hear some of his earlier tunes with producer Phil Pratt, as well as a few things with Coxsone Dodd and even his own productions. Campbell seemed to hit his stride in the late 70s and into the early 80s as he warmed up the dancehall scene. We don't leave that era untouched!
