Linval Thompson (born 2 October 1954, Kingston, Jamaica) is a reggae and dub artist and record producer.
Thompson was raised in Queens, New York and his recording career began aged 16 with "No Other Woman". Returning to Jamaica in the mid 1970s he recorded with Phil Pratt, only to return to New York to study engineering. Returning again to Jamaica, he worked with Lee "Scratch" Perry at his Black Ark studio, recording "Kung Fu Man", and recorded with Bunny Lee, which resulted in his debut album Don't Cut Off Your Dreadlocks in 1976. Thompson began to produce his own material, the first fruits being the Trojan album I Love Marijuana (1978) and its dub counterpart Negrea Love Dub. Although he continued to work as a singer, he became increasingly prominent as a producer, working with key artists of the late roots/early dancehall era such as Cornell Campbell, The Wailing Souls, Barrington Levy and Trinity, with releases through Trojan as well as his own Strong Like Sampson and Thompson Koos record labels.
