Linton Kwesi Johnson - Dread Beat and Blood

Rare BBC Documentary (1979)

I have been after this for ages, last time I saw it was on The Community channel years ago Smile

Describes the art and life of Linton Kwesi Johnson, black English poet. His attempt to create a new oral poetry from the patois and reggae music of his native Jamaica has thrust him into the role of spokesman for Britain's black community

Director and producer, Franco Rosso

Run time 46:29

I bought a pirate copy of the film Babylon a few years back and this LKJ documentary was tagged on to the end of it. And very good it is too.

I was nearly going to buy the Babylon DVD a while ago for the Documentary because I could never find the Doc on Youtube, I'm glad I waited Smile
