Pressure Sounds drops six slices of the Rumours rhythm

The great re-issue label Pressure Sounds drops six cuts of the classic 80’s rhythm Rumours by Bunny “Striker” Lee. This outstanding digital rhythm was originally produced by Augustus “Gussie” Clarke and gave Gregory Isaacs a massive hit.

The tunes will be put out on three seven inch 45’s with picture sleeve, available from October 18. The vocal cuts are by Cornell Campbell and Delroy Wilson, each accompanied by a version. Instrumental versions are provided by veteran trombonist Vin Gordon and Toney Asha.

As usual with Pressure Sounds, these tunes haven’t been available for a long time. Some of the cuts were originally on the LP More Ideas released in 1988. The Cornell Campbell cut was however only ever available on a single and the dub versions were only featured on the seven inch releases from Delroy Wilson and Cornell Campbell.

The Rumours rhythm has been versioned many times. Recently by UK-based producer Curtis Lynch, who dropped some heavy as lead cuts with Chyna Soulstar & Demolition Man and Blackout JA & Michie One.
