Prince Far I – “Under Heavy Manners”
Joe Gibbs Records 1980

As many of you may know, we had us a bunch of records
on the marvelous On-U Sound label with amongst others
the mighty, ‘Voice of Thunder’, Prince Far I. Unfortunately
On-U Sound’s label manager summoned me to remove all
of their records. Fortunately however we still have some of
the Prince’s original records like this one on Joe Gibbs Records.
From 1977 and beautifully produced by Joe Gibbs, this is ‘Under
Heavy Manners’. I’d say get it and spread it like you’re used to ..
(we’ve got the 1980 re-issue)

Zoals velen van jullie waarschijnlijk weten hadden we ooit
behoorlijk wat platen op het geweldige On-U Sound label
met onder andere, de ‘Voice of Thunder’, Prince Far I. Helaas
sommeerde On-U Sound’s label manager me al hun platen
van de Global Groove te verwijderen. Gelukkig hebben we
van de Prins ook nog enkele originele elpees zoals deze op
Joe Gibbs Records. Uit 1977 en prachtig geproduceerd door
Joe Gibbs, is dit ‘Under Heavy Manners’. Ik zou zeggen,
Down, deel en luister wederom naar Prince far I ..
(wij hebben hier de 1980 her-uitgave)

    Classic album. Released at the joe Gibbs label, when the label was releasing its best albums.
    For instance: Culture’s Two Steven clash and the other Joe Gibbs albums of Culture; Trinity’s three Suit Piece; Irie reggae Hits; Dennis Brown’s Visions; the Professional’s African dub vol. 3.
    The late recording engineer Errol Thompson at his best.

    great LP – unfortunate that the cd reissue is muddy and sounds terrible – try and grab the LP which is pretty easy to locate
