In the early '70s, Leroy "Mabrak" Mattis, a student at Howard University, joined a drum and dance group called Contact Africa, and instructor Kojo Fosu introduced him to the talking drum. Back home in Jamaica, "I bumped into an old friend, Bim Sherman. He knew I was a musician, and he was going to King Tubby's studio that day. I tagged along." With brilliant guitar instead of horns, here is a different version of the rhythm Bim used for "Love Forever." The same as on Mabrak's 1976 Drum Talk LP (DO JS005-LP), but a little brighter and more dynamic, and bringing a deep, unmissable Tubbys dub.
