Lilting roots reggae
Pieter | Johannesburg | 02/20/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This reggae classic consists of tracks recorded from 1974 to 1976 at different Jamaican studios. Dr Winston Alimantado is assisted on vocals by legends like Gregory Isaacs and Horace Andy among others. The music is mostly laid-back with a dub feel, a gently lilting and swaying beat with superb vocals. My favourites include the title track with its hilarious chicken sounds, I Killed The Barber with its interesting arrangement and Can't Conquer Natty Dread with its chugging rhythm and hypnotic melody. Part of this album's charm derives from the different production styles that offer plenty of variation and ensure a delightful listening experience.
A Big Find

(5 out of 5 stars)

"It took me over 3 years of collecting reggae to find this highly recommendable album which I would classify as a type of vocal-roots-dub.

What to expect:
**radical lyrics
**sing along melodies
**awesome roots-style beats
**smokin' dub effects

I can also boast for this album that it's the first one to ever inspire a review."
