CARROLL THOMPSON: Feel The Magic (Ltd. vinyl 7″)

CARROLL THOMPSON:  Feel The MagicA big score here for Happy People Records as Carroll ‘Queen of Lover’s Rock’ Thompson releases her new single, Feel The Magic, through the label. And if you’re a devotee of the sound that rose from the ashes of rocksteady and developed alongside conscious Rastafarian reggae in the 70s, you certainly will feel the magic since Thompson seems to have lost none of hers and this could sit right alongside the classics of the genre. Indeed, why not make an evening of it, by chucking this on the phonograph and then watching Steve McQueen’s evocative and atmospheric TV movie Lover’s Rock? Get some goat curry bubbling away in the kitchen and a couple of warm cans of Red Stripe and it’ll be like time travel without the hassle of instigating a temporal paradox. Get on it as it’s only a 300-pressing run, 200 on black vinyl and 100 on pink vinyl.
(Out 26 February on Happy People Records)
