On Jamaica's north coast lies St. Ann's Parish, where music and rebellion are elemental and incarnate (as exemplified by native sons Marcus Garvey and Bob Marley). At its highest point sits the hilltop village of Steertown, where lime trees grow and devout Rastafarian musicians congregate when the moon is full to chant sacred praises to the drummed trance rhythms of the Nyabinghi sect, to which the seven Wingless Angels belong. When Keith Richards became a Jamaican resident years ago, he met and befriended the Angels through member Justin Hinds, the ska pioneer, and the Stones' immortal began a spiritual and musical jam with the group that has crystallized into this unique recording of primal drumbeats and haunted Wesleyan hymns. In this CD is found both root and nectar of reggae, the hypnotic footsteps of Rasta, and the echoes of Garvey and Marley. And Richards's playing is delicate, like fine lace. --Alan Greenberg

True island music. Keith Richards followed their sound into the hills of Jamacia. These guys are the real deal. Their subjects are true to their lives. The sound is crisp and real.

"Thanks to Keith Richards for sharing the beauty of this deeply moving music. The drumming/singing/chanting on this cd is wonderful. It's a great Sunday morning cd...use it whenever you want to relax!"

"A labour of love courtesy Keith Richards, who has known these musicians for twenty-five years. Highly spiritual and hypnotic singing/drumming/chanting, with Keith providing his typical taste and understatement in support."
