First Cut: Ackee

Well we had to make up for last weeks disappointment, now didn’t we. Ackee isn’t the most sought after of skinhead reggae labels although a few tunes on it, namely “Skinheads Wrecking the Town”, are prized pieces for any hardcore collector. Perhaps it’s because the producers weren’t quite the household names that other producers were, and it’s limited output during the key years of 1969 and 1970 certainly didn’t help. Either way the first tune put out on the label and produced by Junior Lincoln was an absolute stormer. Skinhead reggae at it’s finest here folks. Lovely instrumental and a bit of toasting throughout all combine to make “Death In The Arena” by Rupie Martin’s All Stars one to seek out.
