Barrington Levy – Robin Hood
Greensleeves Records 1980

Last night I was watching the western ‘The Harder They Fall’
by clip director Jeymes Samuel on Netflix. Heavily influenced
by Sergio Leone and Quentin Tarantino, he created a black cowboy
film in which he used reggae and soul songs. I quite enjoyed it
despite the bloody scenes. Very strong was the use of a version
of Barrington Levy’s ‘Here I Come’ (Broader than Broadway) and
Dennis Brown’s ‘Promised Land’. It inspired me to record a
classic Barrington album today. From 1980 we’ve got the great
‘Robin Hood’, backed by the Roots Radic Band, arranged and
produced by Henry ‘Junjo’ Lawes, mixed by Scientist, a
must have for every reggae lover. I added some
classic Barrington songs as a bonus ..

Gisteravond keek ik op Netflix de western ‘The Harder They Fall’
van zanger, producer en clipregiseur Jeymes Samuel. Duidelijk
beïnvloed door Quentin Tarantino en Sergio Leone maakte hij
deze zwarte cowboy film waarin hij gebruik maakt van reggae
en soul muziek. Ik heb er, ondanks de bloedige scenes, behoorlijk
van genoten. IJzersterk vond ik het gebruik van Barrington Levy’s
‘Here I Come'(Broader than Broadway) en Dennis Brown’s ‘Pro-
mised Land’. Het inspireerde me vandaag een klassiek Barrington
album op te nemen. Uit 1980 komt het mooie ‘Robin Hood’, met
de Roots Radic Band, arranged en produced door Henry ‘Junjo’
Lawes en gemixed door Scientis, een ‘must’ voor elke reggae
liefhebber. Ik heb enkele Barrington classic
als bonus toegevoegd ..

    I enjoyed the movie too, very much worth the hype. Hopefully they do a sequel. Thanks for sharing this Barrington Levy album, I’ve heard the broadway song from the movie on the radio some years back and its good to now add to my collection.

    Hi Moos, hope you’re happy and well.
    Yes, this is a fine fine album. You may know this but for anyone who doesn’t, it’s worth noting that Scientist’s “Heavyweight Dub Champion” album contains dub versions of the tracks from this album. Actually the latest re-issue is credited to Junjo rather than Scientist. The less said about that, the better!

    Take care and I’ll be looking to do some more vinyl cleaning soon :)

      You’re right, I have those Scientist
      re-issues on cd and they contain a second
      disc with the tracks they used,
      thanks Richard ..
