LP version. Kingston Sounds present a reissue of Cornell Campbell's Boxing, originally released in 1982. What we have here is one of Cornell Campbell's great dancehall, early '80s set of songs. Dancehall was when the beat slowed down to that classic one-drop style that suited his voice so well. The album includes the title "Boxing" which was a massive hit for Cornell on its initial release in 1982. It also includes a dancehall reworking of "Queen Of The Minstrel" and a fantastic dancehall cut to Bob Marley's "Natty Dread". This was a new chapter in reggae's sound that saw the rhythm slowed down and seemed to add even more emphasis to the songs meanings. A reissue of Cornell's early '80s Boxing set is complete here. Be sure to play it in full -- Cornell Campbell at his finest.
