The Gladiators

The Virgin Collection

-

CAROLINE/ISLAND. CD/DL

As roots went global circa 1976, Albert Griffiths’ Gladiators were on the rebound from Studio One, but through producer ‘Prince Tony’ Robinson wound up on Virgin’s Front Line subsidiary for a four-album late-’70s run, here collected in full. Aggressive­ly ‘outernatio­nal’ to the point of including two Wailers covers on FL debut Trenchtown Mix Up, these records have since waned in credibilit­y, but make irrepressi­bly summery listening.
