    I think you're right, I'll play it on my radio show this week. Just checked - the 7" came on Upsetter and Black Art, two different mixes of which I only have the Upsetter, surprised it hasn't been reissued.

    Edited as I got another Meditations tune on 12" mixed up.

    This LP just got repressed:

    Great titles (below) sound samples up at dub vendor
    http://www.dubvendor.co.uk/well-pack-band--winston-edwards---strike-x28studio-16x29-lp-27252-p.asp

    Well Pack Band / Winston Edwards - Strike (Studio 16) LP

    Rare dub / instrumental album produced by Winston Edwards in 1980, warm and easy UK vibes with lots of horns, sounds like the Well Pack Band may be Matumbi or members thereof in another guise. The theme being the workers socialist struggle against the tyranny of the bosses was probably hot at the time, though the music is more mellow than militant.

    Side A:
    1. New Approach To Workers
    2. More Power To The Workers
    3. Bad Management
    4. Mahagement Attitude To Workers

    Side B:
    1. Better Working Conditions For Workers
    2. Union & Management
    3. More Opportunity For Workers Children
    4. Stop Victimisation

    It's not exactly Socialist, but I love Ninja's commentary on the shitstem. Hope he can stay out of jail long enough to make some more records now.

    I made a playlist of as many of the tracks mentioned here as I could find on spotify.

    I'm not sure how it works but hopefully at least one of these links will mean people can listen to it and add more tracks as the thread (hopefully) grows;

    Stumbled across it after looking through the TR Groovemaster catalogue the other night, having heard a lovely and unique sounding dub cut on the label produced by TR himself (Tony Robinson) http://www.discogs.com/label/121516-TR-Groovemaster
