P. Allen's Fisherman is wicked lost Canadian business from 1984. "Fisherman" is a low-fi proto digital masterpiece which predates the release of King Jammy's "Sleng Teng" by a full year. Peter Allen released only one tune, recorded at Aquarius Studio in Kingston, Jamaica in 1984. Perhaps it was too ahead of its time -- or too unusual, with its dirge-like synth and deep roots lyrics -- but "Fisherman" was largely overlooked until a few copies emerged around five years ago, becoming coveted grails by European digi-collectors with deep pockets.
