Lopez Walker: Uncovering the Mysterious Reggae Artist

Perfect Sound Forever... Lopez Walker: Uncovering the Mysterious Reggae Artist. "...Lopez Walker is a reggae singer who recorded four tracks for the producer Roy Francis’ Phase One label in the late 1970s and then 'vanished from the scene' (Barrow, liner notes). In an interview with journalist David Katz, Roy Francis explained the cicumstances in which some of these songs were recorded: 'I was at Channel One doing sessions and saw [Walker] standing outside – he say he want to do something for me, start sing a song by the name of 'Jah Jah New Garden.' I take him right in the studio and recorded the rhythm, voice him a week after and put it out'"
