Die zehn wundervollsten Lovers Rock-Alben (no. 10 – Junior Delaware: Showcase)

von: Michael Engelbrecht Filed under: Blog | TB | Comments off

Junior Delahaye’s Showcase ist ein klassisches und begehrtes Lovers-Rock-Album von Lloyd „Bullwackie“ Barnes‘ in der Bronx ansässigem Label Wackies. Delahaye arbeitete als Tontechniker für Wackie’s und war ein vielseitiger Musiker (er war Co-Tontechniker bei seinem eigenen Album). Das Album vereint „sweet Soul“ im Philadelphia-Stil mit Bullwackies tiefgründiger, mystischer Dub-Produktion und Delahayes unverwechselbarem Tenor- und Falsettgesang.


Further adventures with Lloyd Bullwackie Barnes – the man who worked formatively in Lee Perry’s Black Ark, then relocated to New York, with a crucial take on classic period Scratch production techniques and part of his equipment. It’s no coincidence that the drifting analogue detail in the rhythm tracks owes much to Lee Perry’s classic period, providing a bridge from the well documented seventies heyday of roots reggae into the less well covered mid eighties – all Barnes work is worth checking and this is no exception. Delahaye has a wonderful high register falsetto styled vocal, even on the couple of lovers‘ cuts here sounding rootsy and deep. Featuring a great recut of The Chantell’s classic Sitting in the park, and five other top quality cuts, find out why this label is held in such high regard.
