Various Artists Safe Travel
- Words: David Katz
- Label: Pressure Sounds
A contemporary of Bunny Lee and Lee "Scratch" Perry, underrated producer Phil Pratt recorded wonderful rocksteady gems but issued them in limited quantity on scarce Jamaican 45s. This cherry-picked compilation collects his greatest and rarest shots with legendary figures such as Ken Boothe, Horace Andy, and The Clarendonians, plus forgotten artists like Hemsley Morris, The Cool Cats, and The Thrillers. Some tracks were unfortunately mastered from such badly worn vinyl that it ruins the listening experience, but the music itself is timeless and faultless.
