About this item

Splitting the masses somewhat due to it's 'one riddim' approach, this set by the Congos, Lee Perry and Rhythm and Sound is none the less quite adored by the purists and deep heads alike. Much like R&S' "See My Jah" LP, The Congos "Fisherman" rhythm is dissected and rolled out across 24 tracks, with a plethora of different vocalists, old and new, invited to drop some vocals on the stems.

The result speaks volumes for the quality of the original riddim, with enough variety amongst the numerous tracks to see the idea behind the album. Thankfully everyone behind the project has kept the running costs low, meaning it's not that much commitment if you're only after one or two of the performances. 

With detailed sleeve notes from Steve Barrow, and presented in full colour picture sleeve this is a collection not to be missed!
