Rating : (1 to 5 stars)
Lopez Walker is a fine, but rather little known roots singer, who reached a wider audience when UK's premier re-issue label Blood & Fire released their "Chantell & Friends" set which contains four Roy Francis produced cuts of the singer. Lopez Walker, who comes from Bog Walk above Kingston, Jamaica, plays guitar and sings. He recorded a 45 for producer Joe Gibbs before cutting the four aforementioned pieces. After having cut another 7" single for Roy Francis' "Phase One" label in 1979 he vanished from the scene. Now Lopez Walker returns with a decent effort entitled "Take Heed". The song is delivered in fine roots style (somewhat reminiscent of Don Carlos' vocal style) over a solid backdrop laid by the renown Mafia & Fluxy.
