Glen Brown Check The Winner on LP
In February 2016, Greensleeves will reissue three crucial LPs – Boat To Progress, Check The Winner and Dubble Attack – from the seminal Jamaican singer and producer Glen Brown. The titles were originally recorded for his record label Pantomime between 1970-74 and released on Greensleeves in 1989. A quarter of a century later, they will be available on vinyl – completely remastered with an extended 12-page booklet (including the original liner notes written by Harry Wise) and artwork by Tony McDermott. Each album showcases Brown's diverse range of talents during the prime of his career.
Brown was known for his distinct voice, which can be heard on Boat To Progress, the 14-track set showcasing Brown as both a singer and producer plus a variety of all-star vocalists. On Check The Winner, his instrumental dub selection, fans can hear his superb roots reggae productions and sublime dub B-sides. He had an appreciation for jazz music, hence the use of expressive horn sections throughout his work. The "Rhythm Master" also had a knack for deejay music (as seen on Dubble Attack), nurturing some of the top artists who adapted this new "toasting" vocal style in the 1970s. Dubble Attack is the ultimate deejay collection of carefully-selected songs that were recorded at Pantomime and engineered by King Tubby.
