Culture – Two Sevens Clash

Culture’s Two Sevens Clash had been collecting dust in the crates for far too long until I came across it last week. Dropped the needle on it and immediately kicked myself for having not listened to it in so long. It has since been in heavy rotation alongside the extended versions and Joe Gibbs’ dub reworkings.

This classic roots-reggae record was recorded in 1976 at Joe Gibbs’ studio in Kingston 5 and was released in the early part of the following year; after which it became a huge hit throughout the island and abroad in the UK punk scene. An impeccable and essential piece of reggae music. Read more about this release here.
