Culture - Baldhead Bridge LPSKU: VPRL4179
Baldhead Bridge is the follow up to their seismic debut "Two Sevens Clash" for producer Joe Gibbs in 1977 which consolidated Culture's position as Jamaica's roots rock reggae trio. Packed full of Rasta anthems including "Them A Payaka", "Love Shines Brighter", "Jah Love", the title song "Baldhead Bridge" (including an allusion to the 'London Bridge' traditional),the hit single "Zion Gate", and the dread nyabinghi of "So Long Babylon A Fool I (And I)", this set is available once again on LP-Vinyl.
Baldhead Bridge was recorded at the Joe Gibbs Recording Studio within the same sessions as "Two Sevens Clash" with Joe Gibbs and E.T. (aka Errol Thompson) at the mixing desk, the latter in charge also for some special effects, with the musicans of The Professionals and the voices of Joseph Hill (Lead Vocal), Albert Walker (Tenor), Kenneth Dayes (Alto) - it's another 'must-have' for all the fans of Culture and Roots Reggae from '70ies!
