US-based reggae label VP Records is resurrecting former British reggae independent Blood And Fire, with the indie’s former A&R chief Steve Barrow on board to run it.
Blood and Fire was known primarily for its quality reissues of Jamaican recordings from the 1970s and ’80s, many of which were overlooked upon their initial release.
