battle for seattle (2021 reissue)
First released in 2011, and long unavailable on vinyl, Reggae veteran Little Roy's surprising but sure-footed tribute to the songs of Kurt Cobain and Nirvana returns to plastic in a new limited-edition pressing.
newly remastered by Guy Davie (who cut the original master in 2011) at Electric Mastering in London. NME - **** - No tedious intentions, no major fuck-ups, just subtle versions of classic songs that actually end up taking them somewhere new. The Guardian - the quality and richness of the arrangements mean that even the biggest snob will crack a wry smile on hearing, say, Lithium retooled as sunlit ska. DIY mag **** - This is an album that can be enjoyed equally by both reggae enthusiasts and die hard rock fans. Stereoboard - This is an album that can be enjoyed equally by both reggae enthusiasts and die hard rock fans.
