John Holt - Police In Helicopter (Greensleeves - 1983)

John Holt - Police In Helicopter

Europe is freezing its ass right now, with temperatures 10 degrees below normal. Winter clothes are back from the closet when we should normally start officially the barbecue season. And for a successful barbecue, nothing is better than a good reggae roots album. Especially this one. Produced by Henry "Junjo" Lawes at Studio One and backed by the almighty Roots Radics, Police In Helicopter sees John Holt embrassing the cultural/rastafarian thematics, leaving on the side his usually more middle of the road repertoire. On the mythical cover, he tries to save a bag of weed from a Jamaican Defence Force Eradication Units helicopter. Since then, every owner of this record, from suburbans kids to Japanese students, feels like a giggling rebel.
