Lovers Rock was a British style of reggae, very popular in Hackney as it goes. It was a mix of the sweet soul sounds, especially Philly soul and, obviously, reggae. There’s still a few tunes that take me back to school discos, and as Tighten Up Crew’s Mistah Brown recalls: “I loved that even the toughest girls in my school would gather round the benches at lunchtime to sing the latest hits.”

From NME, 2 April, 1983
