Pressure Sounds

Althea and Donna / Inner Circle / Lee Perry Gone to Negril

PSTI33

Producer Tommy Cowans cut the first version of the ‘Gone to Negril’ rhythm for Devon Irons to voice the song ‘Jerusalem’ on. He then returned to the same rhythm for the follow to the pop hit ‘Up Town Top Ranking’ with Althea and Donna for ‘Gone to Negril’.

Some where along the line prompted by Bob Marley Tommy Cowans took the tapes up to the Black Ark. Anyone who was coming from another planet who wanted to know what Lee Perry was about would be well advised to listen to the all out audio assault of ‘Crazy Negril’.

Like a careering car that Perry just about maintains control off ‘Crazy Negril’ screeches whirls and zooms from one side to the other of the musical track. Possibly because it was a ‘mix’ that he was asked to do for someone else from the outside Perry throws caution to the wind and adds a simple rhythm box as well as whistles and a cow bell to amazing effect. It's a an inspired version and adds to the slightly commercial song on the A side. Although ‘Gone to Negril’ has its lyrical moments as well. Anyone who rhymes ‘Adam and Eve without their leafs’ and ‘Feminine gender ranking agenda’ is alright by me.

The 10’ comes in a one off re-cycled re-made sleeve from the ‘Life Goes in Circles’ Pressure Sounds release, which was a previous Tommy Cowans compilation on Pressure Sounds.
