about

My first encounter with Prince Alla was in May 1999 at a show with Peter Broggs at the Selby Centre in Tottenham. It was a rastaman affair with Jah Youth sound running the tunes and Alla tore it up on stage. I’d already linked with Peter Broggs, who offered to put me in touch with Alla too. We spoke on the phone and Alla was keen to do some works but it looked like it wouldn’t happen as other parties were controlling the situation.
Then one day I got a call from a bredren saying Alla was now free to link with me. His mystical works for Freedom Sounds, Joe Gibbs & Tappa Zukie were highlights of foundational roots so the prospect of voicing with him was truly exciting. He arrived at Conscious Sounds and we had a good reasoning. Telling me this was only his second visit to London after a flying visit in the 1970’s, it became apparent that the Prince was unaware of the roots scene in England. We played him some riddims and his eyes lit up. He was ready to sing & voiced 2 tunes straight off. The results were tuff and he told us the vibes reminded him of King Tubbys. You have to understand that this was the early days of the internet and news hadn’t yet reached Jamaica about the UK roots scene, plus not many JA artists were recording in Europe at that point so it was really something new. Of course nowadays name brand JA artists work everywhere, but not then. I think I was the first producer outside Jamaica to work with Alla. During the course of that summer we had more sessions for the album titled Glory, a vocal and dub showcase set released in summer 2000. The works we did reflect Alla’s personality, and anyone who’s met him will testify he’s the living embodiment of a genuine rastaman, plus one of the nicest people you could ever meet.
The vinyl of Glory is sold out but it’s still available on CD.
