Natty Dread

Postby GoogaMooga » 19 Nov 2021, 10:03

I swear, this has got to be the nattiest cover I have ever seen! So wicked, so natty. Sylford Walker. Top groove. We recently had a thread that posed the question, have you ever bought a CD just for the cover. Well, here is one example. I did not hesitate for a second. I hit that button. Swung my card. Skin up sometimes. Lively up yourself. Irie.

I suppose it's a cool enough photo, but the actual design of that album cover is otherwise absolutely appalling.

Yeah, strip the photo of its graphic trimmings, and it is a very cool photo indeed.

I haven't heard it but it was mixed by King Tubby so should be good.
Looks like you lucked out.
