Linval Thompson - Inna De Yard (Makasound)

With the Inna De Yard project led by Soul Syndicate guitarist Earl 'Chinna' Smith, Makasound takes a serious risk. Inna De Yard stands for a series of outdoor recordings, done in the courtyard of Smith, with the intention to capture the soul and roots of reggae music. The result is reggae in its purest and most acoustic form, and perhaps that remains something for connoisseurs. With this third album in the series Makasound surprises by getting Linval Thompson to record an album for the first time in twenty years! From a musicological point of view this series is without a doubt more than interesting and fans can already start looking forward to the next release, which will be an album with Cedric Myton (legendary falsetto with The Congos).
