Hot Milk has been digging deep into the crates and will be brightening up the summer with its third and very special release, Linval Thompson and The Revolutionaries “Boss Man’s Dub – The Lost 1979 Dub Album”.

For reasons that have been lost in the mists of time, this Dub album by artist & producer extraordinaire Linval Thompson only ever made it as far as having a tiny quantity of white labels pressed up and until now has never had a full commercial release.

Born 1954 in Kingston, Jamaica, Linval Thompson is one of the legends of reggae whose work as not only an artist but producer inspired some of the best Dub Reggae of the late 70’s and early 80’s.

Intended for release in 1980, this set was recorded in 1979 and features dub versions of tunes produced by Linval with artists including the man himself Linval Thompson (Six Babylon, Mr Boss Man), Freddy McKay (Lonely Man), Michael Black, Anthony Johnson, Sammy Dread and Cornell Campbell.

This release is yet another lost relic of Jamaican music that is finally getting its just rewards after decades of being lost to the world bar the few who were lucky enough to own the impossibly rare original white label pressings.

Includes two bonus dubs from the same era as the “Boss Man’s Dub” album.
