Al Moodie "Peace Love Message" 1980

I don't know anything about Al Moodie (except he was a session guitarist, for Horace Andy for example), he released a bunch of singles in the 70s, recorded at highly acclaimed Black Ark Studios, Harry J's and Channel One, mixed at King Tubbys etc. One those recordings he had musicians like The Gaylads, Freddy McGregor, Keith Sterling and Sly & Robbie. This LP was released in 1980, and it seems to me like it is a compilation of his singles. It is an incredible rare vinyl and I believed it has never been official reissued - sadly. Cause this set is full of amazing, moody, lo-fi and groovy reggae!
