About this item

Reissue. Unavailable for years Jah Lloyd meets David Cunningham - the legendary recordings from 1978 for the first time available on vinyl. David Cunningham says “The source tapes for this LP were recorded in Jamaica by Jah Lloyd as part of a series he made for Virgin Records' Front Line label. The original tapes were not released and were offered to me by Front Line's Jumbo Vanrennen with the suggestion that I should "remix" the music. I accepted the project, expecting lots of time in one of Virgin's studios to play with the music and the equipment, only to be presented with a mono master tape. So I began to invent (or perhaps re-invent) techniques of editing, looping, filtering and subtraction to deal with unremixable mono material (these were the days before samplers. The techniques used here expanded my vocabulary of musical electronic (as opposed to electronic music) treatments and appear in a very different form on records made at that time. Notably "Fourth Wall", my collaboration with Patti Palladin, and my production work on Michael Nyman's records.”
