PRINCE FAR IBEDWARD THE FLYING PREACHER b/w VERSION THIS IS A VERY RARE LIMITED PRESSING 7" VINYL RELEASED ON THE 'SOUND BOY' RECORD LABEL IN 2003 CENTER-DINKED FOR DJ OR JUKEBOX USE THE VINYL IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION IT COMES IN A PLAIN WHITE CARD SLEEVE (PLEASE CHECK OUT THE PICTURES AT THE TOP OF THIS PAGE FOR CLOSER INSPECTION) KILLER ON-U-SOUND PRODUCTION !!Originally released in 1983 on the album STAGGERING HEIGHTS by Singers & Players, this Adrian Sherwood/On-U Sound production still packs a punch 20 years later. Prince Far I, aka the “Voice of Thunder,” narrates the tale of Alexander Bedward, a turn-of-the-century Baptist preacher and founder of Bedwardism, one of the precursors to the Rastafari faith. It seems poor ol’ Bedward thought he could ascend to heaven by jumping off of a building. Unfortunately, he only flew in one direction, and that was down. Backing up Far I’s tale are members of the On-U house band circa 1983: Eek-a-Roo on drums, Lizard on bass, Crucial Tony on guitar, Flash on saxophone, and Bubblers on piano. The spatial separation and dynamics of the mix are practically jaw-dropping…but that was standard operating procedure for On-U back in the day. The B-side features a previously-unreleased (and somewhat milder) dub version of the track. Released on the Sound Boy label, a new spinoff from On-U Sound which promises a full slate of new and classic releases in vinyl format.
