Sorry for any duplicate, but I don't think this was posted. Found that with the previous post regarding The Ethiopians's The Return Of Jack Sparrow.


THE RETURN OF NIGHTHAWK
https://omnivorerecordings.com/the-return-of-nighthawk-records/

FULL TIME (available December 15, 2017)
Remastered from the original tapes and including the 1983 U.S. Tour-E.P. in it’s entirity!

Omnivore Recordings is proud to announce the acquisition of Nighthawk Records and Blackheart Music Publishing.

The Gladiators were founded by Albert Griffiths in 1968 after he experienced a positive reaction to early solo singles. Success came quickly for the new roots reggae band with “Hello Carol” which topped the charts in Jamaica. Working at Studio One in the early ’70s, the Gladiators produced a string of hits; “Roots Natty,” “Bongo Red,” and “Jah Jah Go Before Us.” Naturally the major labels came calling and the band was signed to Virgin Records where they cut albums for the rest of the decade. They started by revisiting their history on the classic, Trenchtown Mix Up, their Virgin debut, on which the Gladiators recorded new versions of their early hits.

Roots reggae underwent a decline in popularity during the ’80s, but it was a busy decade for the Gladiators who were at the height of their powers. They recorded eleven albums during the decade, including three for the U.S. label, Nighthawk Records. Those albums, Symbol Of Reality (1982), Serious Thing (1984), and their collaboration with Leonard Dillon (the Ethiopian) Dread Prophecy (1986), will all be reissued by Omnivore. The reissue program begins with Full Time, which was originally issued in 1992, and comprised of material from the productive sessions the band did for Nighthawk in the previous decade.

From the liner notes: “The Gladiators’ Nighthawk sessions were all recorded and mixed at Harry J Studio by the legendary engineer Sylvan Morris who first worked with the Gladiators in the early 1970s at Studio One where they developed a deep respect for each other and a unity of purpose in their mutual work. At Harry J Studio, the riddims were tight and Sylvan was feeling the vibes, so all the resulting albums are blessed with hot dub versions by the master.” Full Time is more from these great sessions.

Now newly mastered from the original tapes by Grammy®-winner Michael Graves. The 14 track release features new liner notes from original co-producer Leroy Jodie Pierson. “Full Time “means “making it” and is a vital piece of the Gladiators history and essential to any reggae fans’ collection.

It's the same track listing as the original 1992 CD, but the sleeve is much nicer. The Nighthawk catalogue features some important records and those remastered will be welcome.

Yes. Nighthawk, released some tidy Reggae sets. I still cannae believe, they were based in St.Louis, of all places! Surprised

Most of those sets, artwork, was very typical of the era.....These updates, are much cleaner looking. The music.....that speaks for itself, and even naff artwork, doesn't diminish its masterfulness. Smile

Glad to see the label, resurrected! Very Happy

A couple of years ago there was a special edition of Justins' Travel With Love on vinyl. Hopefully that will translate to a CD edition.
