CHANNEL 1 - no introduction needed. With reverence, we present the first batch in a series of mainly never-before-reissued selections from the Channel 1 catalog, to be distributed by DKR. Round one: Stephanie Samuels 'Africa We Want to Go', beautiful one-away deep roots with birdsong, truly mystical tune. Carlton Livingston 'Tale of Two Cities', not only his first released tune, but one of his best. A tough riddim by the Revolutionaries, with wicked horns. Midnight Riders 'Posse Form a Line', a special request to the Channel 1 crew of the day. This is one of the best tunes from the Riders, who are one our all-time personal favorite artists, so this one is a special joy for us to bring out. A simply amazing late era Channel 1 riddim, proving that Channel ruled from beginning to end.

Concerning "Posse Form A Line", any idea who has mixed the dub version? And the studio band, is that The Revolutionaries backing The Midnight Riders? Sly & Robbie, I would presume.

don't know for certain who mixed the 'posse...' dub. the main mixing engineer at CH1 at the time the tune was made was Scientist, but could have also been Peter Chemist or Donovan, who also mixed a bunch at that time. or one of the others who worked there even...sorry that i can't be specific. these things were not always notated. the backing band is definitely the Gifted Roots Band. Dwight Pinkney (lead guitar), Lassy Beckford (rhythm guitar), Stanley 'Barnabus' Bryan (drums), Danny Thompson (bass), Gladdy Anderson (keyboard), Noel 'Skully' Simms (percussion). occsionally with Tony Asher on synth/keys, and Everald Gayle, Tony Green, Deadly Headley and sometimes more on horns.

It's a magnificent mix, both vocal and dubwise. Thank you for the input. This is precious information, indeed.

nice to see jojo letting someone into channel's vaults.
it would great to see the release of the enforcer's lp also there's a great johnny moore instrumental that channel has but i don't believe that it has ever been released.
btw, i think that might be solgie doing the mixing on the midnight riders cut
