His album Starlight, backed by Sly & Robbie was distributed on the Mango/Island Label in 1988.
Linval Thompson’s knowledge of the music business led to success through established independent labels and his own imprints. His productions were very popular in the U.K. With london as the main hub. He worked with Indy labels like Trojan, Greensleeves, And Burning Sounds.
Several of Thompson’s best productions were of relatively unknown artists. He recorded ‘Mystic Eyes’ excellent album mysterious in 1979 and essential deejay albums by Big Joe (African Princess) And Trinity (Rock In The Ghetto). These early productions were backed by the revolutionaries (Sly & Robbie) and represent the best of the late rockers era in Jamaica.
