Robert French - Pretended Lover 7'' [1983 All Sport Original Pressing]

Though the digital sound didn't become official untill the drop of
Sleng Teng by Jammy at the 4 Sound Clash of 1985, there were still
tunes as early as '83/'84 that displayed digikal sounds. While by '85
tunes were fully computerized, some of these earlier tracks are not
quite strictly digi. Still, they represent a piece of history... a
transitional phaze that eventually lead to the death of the studio
band, and the rise of the golden era of digital dancehall. This tune
here by French is absolutely beautiful, with the hauntingly melodic
piano and heavy bass. Another rare find....
