Gussie Clarke Gussie Presenting The Right Tracks on LP

VP Records' vintage imprint 17 North Parade opens its vaults to present a crucial reissue from one of the most influential Jamaican producers Gussie Clarke, who has consistently churned out hits since the 1970s until today. Gussie Presenting The Right Tracks, which was originally released in 1976, captures Clarke's early work during a definitive era for reggae.

Originally recorded and mixed inside Kingston's legendary Channel One studio and King Tubby's Tubby studio, this collection includes Gussie's work with a true parade of Jamaican greats, including Horace Andy, Leroy Sibbles of The Heptones, Dennis Brown, Gregory Isaacs, Delroy Wilson, Augustus Pablo, Leroy Smart and Jacob Miller.

In an excerpt from the set's liner notes, Gussie Clarke explains his thought process at the time. "There's no ‘how it comes about' with these names. I'm that kind of person who's always thinking outside the box. There wasn't any logic to it! It's just a love for the difference and the uniqueness of things. Everybody had a sound and a style and I'd switch the musicians round to get a different vibe and a different feel."

"I had the songs and in those days compilations were a good idea. I said ‘why not?' and ‘The Right Tracks' is appropriate now because they are the right tracks," he adds.
