The Original Jesus Dread

"It should be noted that although Yabby You was and is the dreadest of dreads, he is a Christian dread- a Jesus Dread. From a long time he used to get into reasonings with Rastas who worshipped JAH through Hailee Selassie. Yabby worships JAH through Jesus Christ- a big difference. This recording contains some of Yabby's very best and is an excellent place to start for those interested in the "You-man's" music. Backing is provided by the cream of the crop of reggae musicians including Tommy McCook, Horsemouth Wallace, Family Man Barrett, Augustus Pablo and others. All tracks were recorded at Channel One Studios during the seventies and the sound quality is excellent. This is reggae with a message for the end times- apocolyptic roots and culture. Churchical harmonies and messages are abundant, including the classic "Conquering Lion", "Deliver Me From My Enemies" and "Carnal Mind". Every cut is strong- you won't be disappointed if you enjoy conscious dreadlocks reggae music. "Judgement Time" features a hard riddim with crucial horn parts and lyrics like, "People of the world, can't you see what's going on?...judgement time, judgement time...nations fighting against one another, brothers killing others, JAH Word they cast behind their backs, no one- no one remember JAH." Awesome guitar work by the legendary Chinna Smith is also a feature throughout. Nuff Respect to Yabby You. Jesus is Lord, Jesus is King!"
An under-rated reggae classic

"My vinyl copy was worn out long ago, so I finally purchased "One Love One Heart" on CD, and it sounds great. Superb lyrics in the intense Rastfarian style, fantastic backup musicians, and rhythmic and melodic hooks that just don't quit. I highly recommend it both for the serious reggae fan (who probably already owns it), and especially for the curious who want to go a bit beyond Bob Marley."
