Now he is WELL CHARGED.
This is the Virgin Records release of Vital Dub Strictly Rockers by The Revolutionaries that came out in 1976.
As album covers go, it’s pretty striking. And that guy has clearly had more than just one drag on that spliff – it looks like it’s just been lit, while he looks like he’s been doing 3 hours of buckets, hot-knives, and blow-backs after a night out. Or maybe he’s dead and they just wedged the spliff in there?
If the album cover makes a solid case as to why smoking weed may not always improve your creativity, the music makes the opposite case – it’s stunning (if that guy on the cover was involved in the recording we are pretty sure that wouldn’t be able to handle anything more complex than hitting a triangle once every 20 minutes).
This is a heavy, heavy dub album that consists basically of dub versions of tracks mostly taken from The Mighty Diamonds LP, “Right Time.”
