1x Vinyl LP Album Reissue



Release date

Jan 1, 2018





Hopeton Overton Brown, better known as Scientist, rose to fame during the 1980s as dub music mixer. He collaborated with the Jamaican mixer and producer Prince Jammy a couple of times, most prominent on their album Scientist & Prince Jammy Strike back! Scientist was inspired by the science fiction movies and a part of the album breathes the atmosphere of the unknown. But mostly it's the Roots Radics, providing the rhythms, which creating the whole feeling of this Jamaican piece. Sweeping and swooshing with echo's and dubs it's artefact for the style of late '70s early '80s reggae.

Limited Gatefold issue with great sleeve notes from Dr. Buster Dynamite of this lesser known 1976 LP produced by Alvin Ranglin w/ two additional tracksAlvin Ranglin's memories about his productions with U-Roy"At the time I started working with U-Roy on the LP Dread In A Africa in 1975, I already recorded a few good songs two-three years before with him. But sometime after this project with U-Roy my Record Village shop at 5 Hope Road -on Half Way Tree- got broken into, and these thieves set the place on fire. At the back of the shop, I had a storeroom in which I kept many of my tapes. So some tapes were destroyed with songs from artists like Eric Morris and also some of the U-Roy project. I rented that place from a Chinese lady and she wasn't insured so I lost a lot of money there! At that time this all happened I was in England for business. So it was very stressful to me as you can imagine. Anyhow, I decided a year later on to release the five songs which I still had on tape with some instrumentals from the backing band Skin, Flesh and Bones, as a kind of a showcase album. I don't know what at Dynamic Sounds where the album master was cut by Carlton Lee. Something went wrong as the stamper didn't came out 100% how it should have been. Anyhow, I pressed a very small number of the album, around 12 copies or so, and put them in blank jackets as I didn't made a printed jacket yet. As I rented a shop to TonyRobinson on Slipe Road it make sense a few of the U-Roy albums are carrying his sticker. It got a good reception on the test pressing so I just disbanded it as I thought it was better to concentrate on recordings I did with Gregory Isaacs and Maytones, which were big sellers at that time. U-Roy was of course going strong with Tony Robinson as his producer in 1976, so I'm glad after so many years passing by this album is finally getting a proper release on the Jamaican Art label.
