Earl Cunningham

Earl Cunningham - John Tom - Time

Dennis Brown's DEB label introduced us to Earl Cunningham in the early eighties. Since then Earl as only made a few appearances on plastic. So it's great to see the talented Jah Screw get Earl, back into the studio, to make this excellent album. Eight really good songs voiced over some very strong TIME rhythms, as well as vintage Sharpe Axe cuts, that come form early Jah Screw and Ranking Joe co-productions. Earl's voice is original enough, no obvious influencees - like so many artists all he needs is an hit.
