About this item
Nassau Track Authority's second serving of vinyl goodness is as hot as they come - in every sense of that word. FBI agents out there probably need to turn a blind eye, though rumour has it that these ACE unreleased instrumentals come from one of the men on the mixing desk at these legendary sessions.
What you're holding in your hand are the unreleased instrumental versions of four Grace classics featuring the genre blending genius of Sly, Robbie, Wally et al. at the legendary Compass Point Studios. Effortlessly fusing dub, disco, post punk and new wave into a completely unique sound, this crack team of studio heavyweights were responsible for at least a third of the decent tunes between 79 and 89, but sadly their talents have rarely appeared in the full splendor of the "Version" - until now that is - absolutely ESSENTIAL listening.
Patrick says: Grace is about as iconic as it gets and much as her androgynous deadpan and occasional snarl are rightly famed, those Compass Point riddims are box office in their own right, so this set of unreleased instrumentals is just the best thing I've heard in ages. I have a feeling these puppies are very limited, so it behooves you not to sleep on this.
