Steel Pulse - Prediction
 
05:31
Steel Pulse's debut album set the band decisively apart from its British colleagues. This was not, by any stretch of the imagination, either pop-reggae or lovers rock. Nor was it the kind of dreamy Rasta reggae or art-for-art's sake dub that was popular at the time. Though the subtly jazzy swing that would later become explicit was already informing Steel Pulse's groove, the band's first album seemed not at all interested in generating anything like a party atmosphere. Handsworth Revolution is about politics first and religion second, with a quick nod to the dance ("Sound System") and another to the herb ("Macka Splaff") and not a single love lyric to be found anywhere. This gives the music a certain intellectual urgency, and the band's instrumental virtuosity is impressive given its youth and relatively inexperience. But it also makes for a rather dry listening experience; other than "Ku Klux Klan" and the gorgeous "Prodigal Son," there's not much to hold onto here, melodically speaking -- and even those two songs sound dry in comparison to the band's subsequent work. Still, there's a solidity to these tunes, a sheer tensile strength, that makes them compelling in their own Spartan way.

Black Uhuru - What Is Life [Oringinal mix]
 
05:51
Lyrics: What is life? Life is a spell What is life? No one can tell What is life? I try to see What is life? It's looking bleak They control the treasure of our birthright And to survive we have to struggle and fight The present confrontation of our mind The flexibility of our vision What is life? I try to see What is life? It's unity What is life? I try to feel What is life? It's really real Everyone say they are not excited While our vineyard exploited African woman hold me close to you Help me to find don't get separated What is life? Life is a treat What is life? Nothing but cheat What is life? Life is a test What is life? Some man Jah bless They control the pleasure of our birthright And to survive we have to struggle and fight The present confrontation of our mind The flexibility of our vision What is life? I try to see What is life? It's unity What is life? Life is a dream What is life? Life is a treat What is life? Life is a spell What is life? No one can tell What is life? I try to see What is life? It's looking so bleak What is life? What is life? What is life? What is life? What is life? Life is a treat

Steel Pulse - Shining
 
04:01
Following on the heels of Handsworth Revolution and Tribute to the Martyrs, two of the sternest and most politically direct reggae albums to come out of late-'70s England, Caught You (released as Reggae Fever in the U.S.) was received a bit more coolly by the reggae establishment. While there were still heavy messages to be found in songs like "Harassment" and "Nyahbinghi Voyage," the band's jazzbo tendencies were front and center, particularly on the album's opening track, the swinging "Drug Squad." And where previous albums had focused overwhelmingly on issues like ghetto uprising, martyred heroes, and the violent destruction of Babylon, Caught You leaned more in the direction of self-celebratory meta-reggae ("Reggae Fever") and romantic love ("Rumors," "Caught You Dancing"). Listen to this one back to back with Handsworth Revolution and you'd hardly guess it was the same band. But it's certainly not a worse one; where Handsworth was dry and heavy, Caught You is tuneful and, well, fun. So maybe it's not a reggae album for the ages. But it sure will go over well at parties.

Linton Kwesi Johnson - Di Black Petty Booshwah [12'' Version] [#]
 
03:42
I remember at the time of its release that many reviewers considered Bass Culture a slight disappointment because it didn't reach the highs of Forces of Victory. Granted, following up a record as great as Forces of Victory is no easy task, but all these years later I wonder what were people thinking. Bass Culture is tremendous, another successful collaboration between Johnson and Bovell with songs that are, at times, even more confrontational (e.g., "Inglan is a Bitch") than anything he had previously recorded. I will admit that the Dub Band sounds better on Forces of Victory, but Johnson is hitting his stride at the time of this release and experimenting with song structure and lyrics a little more (i.e., not everything is explicitly political here). Still, I defy anyone to come up with a reason to not own this record. An extra added bonus is John Kpiaye's great guitar playing. Produced by: Linton Kwesi Johnson & Dennis (Blackbeard) Bovell Recorded at Gooseberry Sound Studios Engineered by: John Caffrey, Mark Lusardy & Dennis Bovell Tape-Op: Sid Mixed by: Dennis Bovell Vocals: Linton Kwesi Johnson Bass: Vivan Weathers, Floyd Lawson Guitar: John Kpiaye Keyboards: Dennis Bovell & Webster Johnson Alto Sax: James Danton Tenor Sax: Buttons Henry Tenyue Trumpet & Flugelhorn: Dick Cuthell & Patrick Tenyue Trombone: Rico Harmonica: Juilio Finn From the Island/Mango album Bass Culture, released May 7, 1980

Third World - Cool Meditation
 
03:41
Probably the first and best fusion of reggae and soul music by a reggae group. Third World was looking to sell records worldwide and not just in Jamaica and England, and while the band's fusion of these genres may have infuriated the die-hard Rasta man, it helped the music reach a larger base. After the opening "One Cold Vibe," a melodic reggae bouncer, a tepid "Cold Sweat" (not the James Brown tune) has floating rhythms that soften the harsh lyrics. Falsetto vocals propel "Cool Meditation," which has a faster beat then most of these tracks, but it's the remake of the O'Jays' "Now That We Found Love" that established them as international stars. The title track "Journey to Addis" is an amalgamation of practically everything, and it works; though traditionalists will dismiss it and these other tracks, there's nothing superficial about this winning album that is now available on CD.
