CD Reviews

Essential Reggae
Jingleballs | Baltimore, MD USA | 08/07/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Several years ago Rolling Stone magazine ranked this album better than any of Bob Marley's in a list of the 100 best albums of all time. That is debatable. But this CD rightly deserves the credit it's due, and shouldn't be overlooked. The themes deal with everyday life in Jamaica. Sly and Robbie are at their best laying down tight rthyms. Sensimilla is along the same lines as this. Both are crucial reggae CDs."
"What a Joy to Hear the Utterance of a Rasta . . ."
Rich Latta | Albuquerque, NM - Land of Entitlement | 06/17/2006

"Just thought I'd throw my 2 cents in - this is one of my favorite reggae bands and RED is one of their best. What puts this reggae above many others is the masterful pop craftsmanship and the first-rate melodies. If you're looking for some raw roots reggae, you might want to look elsewhere. Not only is RED great reggae, it's expertly produced pop music. The standout tracks are clearly "Sponji Reggae" and "Utterance," but the whole record is most worthy.

An interesting side note: "uhuru" is Swahili for "freedom," so the band's name means "black freedom.""
One of the very best.

"One of the best reggae albums ever. Rose was at the peak of his form in 1981. His phrasing, emotion is incomparable. Extra tracks? From hearing the samples, there is only one: "Trodding" is the dub version of "Rockstone"."
