cool runnings

bristol archive


Released: 9th Apr 2012


roots & lovers rock from the definitive ‘80s bristol reggae scene, collecting recordings made by one of the city’s best kept musical secrets.

with a career that spanned 12 years cool runnings were one of bristol's longest lasting bands, yet their failure to gig beyond the west country, or release anything more than their lone twelve inch single means they are unknown to many. led by the talented, soulful voice of winston minott, ‘robin hoods of the ghetto’ was their solitary release. however the band regularly recorded material throughout their career & now bristol archive have selected 12 tracks recorded between ’83 & ’85 to show why the band were so treasured.
