Product Notes

Unlike his dub poet peers, Linton Kwesi Johnson (a.k.a. LKJ) understands the resonating dynamics of "less is more." Unvoiced but implied in his anecdotes of black man struggling, the rage, despair, and determination that power these seven tracks are all the more searing because the listener is forced to meet the material with his or her own experience and emotion. By this 1991 release, LKJ was a true poet by anyone's standards. Whether read in print or experienced layered into music, his Jamaican patwah poetics had elevated an inherently melodic and rhythmic English language variant in the world's eyes, just as the Dub Band's seamless, shape-shifting instrumentations had ratcheted up the status of reggae. Bouncing doleful, near-deadpan rhymes like he's bandleader Dennis Bovell's partner in bass riddimology, LKJ hits harder and deeper in this than any ranter and raver. --Elena Oumano
