2021 EU limited edition 10-track YELLOW vinyl LP, exclusively released for Record Store Day 2021. On ISLAND RECORDS label. Barcode: 602435381176.
• Expanded LP edition of ‘dub poet’ Linton Kwesi Johnson’s classic 1984 album, featuring the original album + three bonus tracks.
• Bespoke gatefold sleeve with enhanced artwork.
• Remastered at Abbey Road, released on heavyweight YELLOW coloured vinyl.
• Produced by Linton Kwesi Johnson and the legendary Dennis Bovell (‘Blackbeard’), the album continues LKJ’s fierce, politically-charged view of Britain at the time. His outspoken comments on the 1981 Brixton riots, the New Cross fire that killed 13 black teenagers and confronting the National Front are all tackled but with an accessible and strident dub-reggae beat.
• Extensive liner notes from the original LP, by the late political activist and journalist Darcus Howe, are included in the package. Darcus was depicted in the recent Steve McQueen film, ‘Small Axe: Mangrove’ on BBC TV.
