Forces Of Victory

LKJ’s second album was a classic. David Bowie even added it on a 2003 list of his favourite albums: Confessions of a Vinyl Junkie. Both he and Linton have strong links to Brixton.
The album is a veritable who’s who of British reggae from the late 70s; Dennis Bovell, Dick Cuthell, Rico – the legendary trombonist who’d been cutting records from the early ska days in Jamaica, and there was even photography from Dennis Morris on the sleeve.
The album contains some of Linton’s best known poems; Sonny’s Lettah and the ever topical Fite Dem Back.
