Iword & the Sound of Creation - Spread the Word LP
August 30, 2007 11:16AM
Just curious of anyone has this vinyl or has ever seen it. I know there were only 1,000 copies pressed, but i heard that only a handful of these actually made it out of the manufacturers building, due to an unknown issue.
Iword released a cd a couple years ago, but it only contained some of the album & some of those tracks were remixed.
For those who don't know the history of the recording, it was the first Wailers recording after Bob died. It was recorded at tuff gong at the end of 1981. Bob also co-wrote one track on the album. The album was to be released on the tuff gong label, but due to unknown issues, it never happened.

The LP features:
Familyman
Carlton
Wya Lindo
Tyrone Downie
Junior Marvin
Al Anderson
Chinna
Alva Reggie Lewis
Andy Bassford
Seeco

Melodica:
Augustus Pablo
Jah Levi (possibly Hugh Mundell?)

Horns:
Tommy McCook
Roland Alphonso
Dean Fraser
Deadly Headly
Cedric Brooks
Bobby Ellis
Dave Madden
Chico
Nambo

Backup Vocals:
I-threes
Israel Vibration
Mighty Diamonds
Tamlins
Pam Hall
Justin Hinds & the Dominos

I own a copy of the lp and its long been a favorite of mine.
I met Iword at snwmf 99 when he performed
with isaac haile selassie. Iword aka Ed Sprinkle's father was an engineer who helped build the jfk library in Addis where a young ed met H.I.M Selassie. Ed went on to become a dj and he was fired when he stopped playing the clapton version
Of I shot the sheriff and player the Marley original. Ed decided
To go to Jamaica to meet Bob and spent time there. After the album was recorded- Iword sadly spent some time in Jail due
to arrival of cocaine in Jamaica. He returned to the states and
did some recording with Jah Levi and Higher Reasoning in Oregon. The last time I spoke with him was a few years back
he was back on the east coast taking care of his mom. There is supposed to be a second lp of Iword but I have not seen it. I spoke to the producers of the lp and there were only so many pressed up 500 copies so its a pretty cool album for fans of the Wailers.
