CD Reviews

The Reggae Album with a N. Rockwell styled painting cover
Tom Plum | Roswell, NM United States | 03/16/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Always we buy the album for the music of course, but I've always been impressed by this album cover, I think in the style of a Norman Rockwell painting.

Top studio musicians teamed up on this 1981 release including Sly, Robbie, Earl "Chinna" Smith and an A-1 Brass section on what was probably their initial effort for the Shanachie record label. Besides the well known titled song, "Illiteracy" and "Hunting Ground" among others make this a highly consistent effort rhythmwise with fresh social content. After their highly praised "Right Time" album and their "I need a roof" effort, this should be considered if you plan on continuing your Diamonds collection.

Known for their beautiful trio harmonies, this album reflects the MDs with a more seasoned, mature roots music; together since 1969; Tabby Shaw has provided the lead vocals, Lloyd Judge Ferguson the lionshare of songwriting and Bunny Simpson rounding out the mix having been very involved in the production end at times. Having a prodigious output of more than 40 albums over the years, there better works are not always that easy to find."
