Limited edition. Exclusive release for RECORD STORE DAY 2024

"In early 2006, TABOU1 producer Guillaume Bougard booked Harry J Studio for a week to record 12 new songs by Horace Andy following the highly successful Mek It Bun released a couple of years before

To back such a legendary artist, TABOU1 asked Sly & Robbie and the Revolutionaries (Channel One studio band in the late 70's) to work the ""old school"" way: all musicians would play live, together and in one take, as opposed to recording their parts separately as is now done in modern music. The result is stunning, with luminaries Ansel Collins and Robbie Lyn on keyboards and organ, Sticky Thompson and Skully Sims on percussions, Dalton Browne and Dougie Bryan on guitar. Bob Marley's synth wizard Tyrone Downie added some musical pixie dust while Stepper did the horns

Several legends came to visit the studio during the sessions and asked Sly & Robbie to voice some of the riddims being recorded, including Bunny Rugs from Third Word and Gregory Isaacs who voiced one of his best tunes, Poor Man in Love in one take
Horace was in fine form during the week he worked with the band, recording 13 tracks. We at TABOU1 are proud to release this wonderful album for the first time on a limited vinyl edition for RSD"
