#10: Linton Kwesi Johnson - Dread Beat An' Blood (1978)


The first of two albums from dub poet Linton Kwesi Johnson that I rate in my top ten. Several tracks from Dread Beat An' Blood have been staples in my own DJ sets for years, perfect because of the deep bass and negative space that gets people feeling it. It's the kind of foreground music you can play at max volume without disturbing those whom the vibe is lost on. Most of the time, though, even the unknowing are sucked into the LKJ groove.
