Massive Dread – Massive Dread [1979]

Massive Dread - Massive Dread
Massive Dread has his name on one of the worst album covers of all time, but this is a much cooler offering.

This is the album sleeve art for Massive Dread’s first album that was released in 1979 and it reminds me of Lee Perry’s Super Ape album cover.

I’m a huge fan of the hand drawn album cover art that took place a lot during the 1970’s and this is a first rate example.

Track Listing:

  1. African Roots

Sadly there isn’t much Massive Dread readily available for download, you can still pick up a few of his standout tracks online though (but it would be nice to see his albums re-issued as downloads):
