Happy to anounce a project which we've been working on allot lately. It's a vocal and dub set of tracks recorded at Harry J Studio, Jamaica in 1980 while I was there working with Lee 'Scratch' Perry. The master tapes of the four tracks that were recorded were only recently discovered. `Utopia' was the only track that had been given a final mix back in the day. The other tracks were never mixed until early 2017 when this task was undertaken by Dougie Wardrop. It was decided that `Utopia' should also enjoy a fresh mix! The new album will be released on Vinyl LP on the 26th of January 2018.

Selections '81, a compilation of tracks recorded while G.T. was working with Jamaïcan musicians in Holland. These songs were recorded at Radio 1 Hilversum (VPRO) in 1981. A year before G.T. Moore spent several weeks in Jamaica, recording with some of the top artists of the country. (Lee 'Scratch' Perry, Zap Pow) Working with "proper" reggae musicians for him was very liberating. Particularly in Channel One playing with Sly and Robbie. When he got back to Europe he wanted to continue that. This time he didn't want to acknowledge the world of rock and pop but concentrate on an authentic Jamaican sound with original melodies, a strong driving beat and free flowing soloists.
