Day 269 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Linval Thompson - Ride On Dreadlocks

Aside from being known for his contributions to dancehall in the early 80s as both a producer and a singer, Linval Thompson's earlier roots work is absolutely golden.  Take for instance today's track, and the 267th in the 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge, "Ride On Dreadlocks" from his 2000 Blood & Fire compilation of the same name... produced by Bunny Lee and featuring that trademark flying cymbal "flyers style" reggae sound that personally delights my ears more than I can possibly explain, it is an absolute killer!  The dub-wise take following the vocal is worth the price of admission alone!  Pure unadulterated reggae joy!
