Release Date:

An astounding collection of early African Head Charge from the '80s, this volume of the Great Vintage series compiles the third and fourth albums Drastic Season and Off the Beaten Track, while Vol. 1 collects the debut A Hole in the Ground and Environmental Studies -- all are essential recordings in the On-U Sound catalog of two-CD compendiums.

This Adrian Sherwood-produced group's dogmatic approach to dub was unique in that it was based around the acoustic percussion grooves of leader Bonjo I. African Head Charge was formed out of revolving cast of musicians that over the years included Junior Moses, Sonny Akpan, and numerous collaborators from the On-U Sound label family. Sherwood played an important role in shaping the deep tribal grooves into an electro-acoustic dub utopia. The Great Vintage series makes an excellent compendium of early tracks from this highly influential future-dub unit.
