Synopsis

Album Description
Mixing impassioned political and social protest with stellar Rasta bats, these sons of Jamaican immigrants-led by David Hinds-rose out of humble Birmingham origins to become one of the U.K.'s all-time greatest reggae acts and a globallyl revered band. Their live shows-both headlining and opening for Bob Marley and others-are legendary. Steel Pulse's Elektra debut album, True Democracy, ranks as one of their strongest, and Earth Crisis further built on their legacy as musical innovators and human rights advocates. Often fusing elements of jazz, dancehall, hip-hop, and Latin music into a roots reggae base, Steel Pulse will forever remain icons of the genre.

CD Reviews

Good album, even better remastered
Tom | Sweden | 08/08/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"In 1981 Steel Pulse was practically bankrupcy without any money at all.
They managed to get some free of charge studio time in a small recording studio in Denmark to make this album.
The result was one of their best albums of all time.
Now a better sounding remaster is out adding 4 new extended previously unavailable tracks to this fabulous album.
Recommended."
Diamond in the rough

"I'm surprised that Steel Pulse hasn't gleaned a more widespread audience. Their upbeat version of reggae is light and refreshing; yet poignant. It's an awesome combination."
