Linton Kwesi Johnson – Forces of Victory (ILPM 9566) (1979)

Even-better-than-you-remember-it sophomore record by unique “dub poetry” artist who manages to reign in the patois enough so as to be intelligible to Babylon. Engineer Dennis Bovell sometimes gets a bit of hassle round Thrifty Vinyl parts, but, after all, he sorted out the Slits and midwifed this really quite good record. Another Folkestone flea market find; check that Supreme logo presaging typography.
