Als Greensleeves Records "Blowing In The Wind" 1990 erstmals veröffentlichte erhielt der Longplayer von der Musikpresse hervorragende Kritiken und wurde zum erfolgreichsten Album des Künstlers seit den 70er Jahren. Die Mischung aus Hardcore Steppers Rythmen, gekonntem Einsatz von Nyahbingh Dumming (u.a. die 7:13 minütige Version von "Drums To The King"), und das majestätische Melodica Spiel wurde von der neuen Generation von Soundsystems und ihrem jungen Publikum begeistert aufgenommen. Am Mischpult in den Dynamic Sounds, Tuff Gong & Music Work Studios saßen die Veteranen Soljie Hamilton, Chunny (aka Oswald Palmer), Sylvan Morris, sowie ein junger Tony Kelly. Lange vergriffen, wird die LP dieser Tage wiederveröffentlicht!
Back in stock! Few artists enjoy a legacy that involves a re-engineering of the very genre in which they work. Lee “Scratch” Perry is such an artist. As a pioneer of dub reggae Perry viewed the mixing console as musical instrument in its own right. The influence of his revolutionary approach has been felt world-wide and into genres far beyond reggae. His 1976 effort, Super Ape, is considered a masterpiece of this or any genre. Working with The Upstetters at his Black Ark studio Perry created a sound with such a lasting appeal that The Rough Guide includes Super Ape as one of their 100 Essential Reggae releases. ALSO FEATURES A 23”x23” SUPER APE POSTER!
Reissue of 1984 LP and on CD for the first time, featuring Sly and Robbie and Ansel Collins. Keith Blake was born in St. Elizabeth, and raised in Greenwich Town, Kingston, Jamaica, Ras Allah's career began in the vocal group The Leaders, who recorded three tracks for producer Joe Gibbs in the late 1960s. When The Leaders broke up, he continued to work with Gibbs, who issued his debut solo release, "Woo Oh Oh". In the mid-1970s he released a single "Born a Fighter" for producer Teddy Powell, before working with Bertram Brown's Freedom Sounds, with a series of recordings, under the name Prince Alla, that are now regarded as roots reggae classics, such as "Sun Is Shining", "Bucket Bottom", "Lot's Wife", and "Stone". He also recorded for producer Tapper Zukie, including the album Heaven Is My Roof. Continuing interest in his work saw the release of two albums of material from the 1970s on Blood & Fire records, Only Love Can Conquer and I Can Hear The Children Singing, which brought his work to a new audience. Allah continued to release records occasionally through the 1980s and 1990s, including an album with Jah Shaka, as well as this album. He has continued to be in demand and since 2010 has been touring the world.
