Cornell Campbell - Greenwich Farm Sessions LPSKU: JRSLP005
A limited edition red-coloured vinyl, Greenwich Farm Sessions compiles some of the great Jamaican singer Cornell Campbell’s finest tracks that he made in league with legendary producer Bunny Lee, and places them directly alongside some equally powerful dub re-workings that were made at King Tubby’s studio.
Cornell Campbell’s distinct falsetto voice, alongside his Rastafarian beliefs in the Mid Seventies, gave him a musical style that added an urgency and righteousness to songs few could match. Whatever the subject matter, Cornell could put across the meaning of the song in what, as with all great singers, seemed effortless, heartfelt, manner.

The stunning Dance In A Greenwich Town, Gorgon, the timeless Stars and Natty Dread In a Greenwich Farm - all cuts that ruled the sound systems when they first appeared in the 1970’s.
