Recorded in 1977 & 1978.
All tracks have been digitally remastered.
Audio Mixer: King Tubby.
The U.K.'s Blood And Fire label is acclaimed for its re-releases of limited edition classic albums, such as the Congos' HEART OF THE CONGOS, as well as compilations of seminal artists like the great Yabby You and Johnny Clarke. Sometimes, they've also released lesser-known artists whose albums have long been deleted, but are still sought after by fans. Such is the case with Sylford Walker and his celebrated LAMB'S BREAD INTERNATIONAL album, hitherto unavailable for years.
Originally produced in 1978-'79 by Glen Brown, the album, finally released a decade later, didn't sell, and Sylford Walker returned to semi-obscurity, though his beautiful ode to marijuana, "Lamb's Bread" became a roots classic. The original Greensleeves album ran just 35 minutes, so Blood And Fire have supplemented some of the cuts with great King Tubby extended dub mixes and added Welton Irie's DJ versions. Walker's dreamy voice, stylistically reminiscent of late 70's Linval Thompson, sounds splendid on tunes like "Cleanliness is Godliness" and "Eternal Day."
