Phill Pratt - Selections from the 1970's

Phil Pratt is one of the most crucial reggae producers. He started to work at Studio One during the rocksteady era, and then moved on to Caltone, where, as a sublabel, he launched Sunshot. Pratt was the one to push forward the young Horace Andy, and during the 1970s he worked with other key artists of that era – singers like Al Campbell and Dennis Brown as well as deejays like Big Youth, Dennis Alcapone and Jah Woosh. Here’s a selection of my personal favourite tunes. Enjoy! -Please note: For authentic reasons titles are not edited, thus complete with misspelled names & titles-
