“Classic set of horns instrumentals from 1976, featuring sax players Herman Marquis and Tommy McCook, trumpet player Bobby Ellis and trombonist Vin ‘Don D Junior’ Gordon blowing hot across resilient rhythms built by bassie Lloyd Parks and drummer Sly Dunbar in their Gibbs guise as The Professionals with legendary engineer Errol Thompson at the controls at Joe Gibbs’ studio, much in the manner of the popular at the time Revolutionaries instrumentals such as MPLA, IRA and Angola. Many were issued as 45’s or provided the foundation for hits by Culture and others. Riddims include Desperate Lover (Rawhide Kid), Get In The Groove (Donald Quarrie, which provided for Cornel Campbell’s No Man’s Land), Heavenless (High Noon), steppers delight Walls Of Jericho, Heavy Beat (State Of Emergency, that underpinned Culture’s Jah Jah See Them A Come), Equal Rights (Security Force), It’s You I Love (Black September, also used for Prince Far I’s Tribute To Michael Holding), Tell Me Now (Stone Wall Jackson) and Nanny Goat (Wild Goat).”
