News -> Selections '81 Digital Release:
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.
