LKJ Forces of Victory 1979

Linton Kwesi Johnson’s Forces of Victory inspired a love of reggae and set me off on a new musical direction. A young university student living away from home, I had been ardent rock fan. And then a new friend played me some reggae. And that was it for next 4 years, LKJ, Bob Marley, Augustus Pablo, Sly & Robbie, Black Uhuru, never left my turn table. The ultimate night was seeing LKJ live at the Brixton Academy. Can’t believe LKJ’s Forces of Victory release is now 42 years old. Still as fresh as ever.
