Jackie Mittoo | Oboe / Wall Street - 12"
Two highly sought-after tracks from Jackie Mittoo’s legendary Showcase album, originally released on Studio One in 1980. Hypnotic, blissed-out funky reggae from Jamaica's finest - Bagga Walker on bass, Leroy ‘Horsemouth’ Wallace on drums, Ernest Ranglin on guitar and, of course, the inimitable Jackie Mittoo on keyboards. Cut super loud, it’s almost impossible to find a copy of this album and if you did it would set you back hundreds of pounds. Housed in a heavyweight card Studio One sleeve, these won’t be around for long.
The A-side is given to a gorgeous, lolling 9-minute cut of ‘Oboe’ hustling Mittoo’s bubbling organ with lilting nyabinhgi and soft woodwind tones in a dead lush and dreamy style. ‘Wall Stret’ on the B-side contrast smartly with its ruder dubbing, riding swollen bass with shimmering organ chords and splashes of guitar for heads-down effect in the dance.
Black vinyl pressing housed in a heavyweight card Studio One sleeve these won't be around for long ! Very Limited edition 1000 copies worldwide 12” pressing.
