anechoictransmission
LKJ's music is as good as reggae gets for me, but this anthology doesn't do it justice. The remastering is very aggressive in some cases and sounds almost like re-mixing. So for example, "Making History" is full with some annoying synth modulations and it ends with a fade out here, instead of the abrupt ending in the original version!

The second annoying thing is that the dub versions always follow the full track. It makes it impossible to listen to it from beginning to ending as an album. Why couldn't they put the dub versions separately?

LKJ deserves much better than this.

Photo of Lynton Kwesi Johnson taken in Brixton © 1983 Stephen Rumney. Historical fact: When I took this photo of Lynton in 1983 I'd not seen the Blue Monk LP nor was I aware of Thelonious Monk or his music. It was not until 2020, 36 years after taking this photo that I became familiar with the Blue Monk LP. The photo of Lynton was commissioned by the Island Press department and used as a press shot for the release of the 'Making History' LP released in 1984.

I met with Lynton on Railton Road in Brixton and had about 5-10 minutes to take several photos which were all taken against the backdrop of Railton Road. The most striking shot from the session was the side portrait which captured Lynton's distinctive sharp style.

After taking the shots they were immediately delivered to the Island Press Office. The photo was kept in the Island Archives and subsequently used without my permission on Lynton's 'Independant Intavenshan (The Island Anthology)' in 1998. I only came across this LP accidentally while browsing Discogs over 10 years after it's release and i'm currently still awaiting a credit and payment for it's use on the cover across all formats and territories.

Anyone working at Island records, especially if you work in the Island accounts department, or know someone at Island please contact me direct via discogs so I can invoice for usage. At time of writing the usage of this photo on all formats is illegal and without my permission. Stephen Rumney [HOLYGRAILS] [17 May 2020]
