First released in 1981 on Canadian label Imperial Records, this dub album is a rarity that put two of the leading UK sound systems, Coxsone and Quaker City, head to head in a clash on vinyl.
It is fair to say that this album probably went under the radar for many people, but in recent years modern artists and producers like Skream have name checked this album as an influence.
The album was mixed by Scientist and showcases some of his best mixing work.
The artwork is pretty incredible showing an intense war montage all hand painted in dull brown, green, and yellow.
The artwork was by Jeff Browne, who also created a small number of other reggae album sleeves for other Canadian labels like the Puff Records release of Barrington Levy’s ‘Run Come Ya!‘
One of the great things about the current digitization of music and back catalogues means that this once rare vinyl release is now easily accessible for download, so you should definitly check it out.
