Various Artists - Roots from the Record Smith LP (Record Smith)
DKR-213
10 song compilation LP, in 2-sided hand silkscreened jacket, blue print or red print.

Ivan "Lloydie Slim" Smith is one of the unsung movers and shakers of 1970's reggae. Slim worked for a time as both in-studio producer & record promoter for Bunny Lee AND Channel 1, the two biggest and most significant producers of the 1970s. At the same time, he quietly built his own catalog and released a relatively small but very high quality barrage of his own productions. These were released across many different labels, both his own and some belonging to his friends and collaborators. Slim moved to New York at the end of the '70s, and continued producing into the 1990's. We have issued some of his work before (click HERE!), but now we present the first ever compilation of Slim's work, featuring his most classic tunes, all taken from master tapes for proper sound, and in a lovely two-sided hand silkscreened jacket. Watch this site, because there's much more to come, released & unreleased, from the Record Smith himself!
