Cliff is off to a musisc festival so he won't be with us for a week or tow, but before he left he
generously sent us yet ANOTHER fantastic reggae post. I am so very lucky to have such wonderful contributors to this blog, always looking for more, if you have some great stuff, please consider sharing, it makes this place SO MUCH better when different tastes/different viewpoints/expert opinions on different styles get involved.......I would have probably quit this thing LONG AGO if it weren't for the help (and wonderful MUSIC) that I aquire from the outside. God bless you all for your generosity!

 CULTURE – HARDER THAN THE REST

If you’ve only heard one song by Culture, then odds on it’s “Two Sevens Clash”.  If you’ve only heard one album by them, then it’ll likely be the album of the same name.  But this album can be judged as rightly standing alongside that one. Culture were a wonderful vocal trio led by the great Joseph Hill. There was no compromise with Hill everything he wrote was about Jah Rastafari, or the history of slavery, or suffering and poverty in Jamaica. Nice mellow harmony vocals ride some crisp backing riddims supplied by an array of talented musicians. Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare are obviously involved as they were in so many of the top albums of the late ‘70’s – early ‘80’s. Get ready for a Roots experience, brought to you by true masters of the genre
Track listing: 1. Behold  2. Holy Mountain Zion  3. Stop The Fussing And Fighting  4. Iron Sharpening Iron  5. Vacancy  6. Tell Me Where You Get It 7. Free Again  8. Work On Natty  9. Love Shine Bright 
10. Play Skilfully

KEITH HUDSON – RASTA COMMUNICATION

It is always great when you enjoy every track on album and with this you should. Keith Hudson was a limited vocalist but he knew how to make the best of what he had. “Rasta Communication” is a cracking album with Hudson upping the political stance on tracks such as “Felt We Felt The Strain” and “Bloody Eyes”. Hudson was known as the man with the musical message and no other album he released displays that given moniker as much as this one. Once more Sly and Robbie help provide the backing tracks alongside other great musicians. The riddims on “Rasta Communication” are sparse and strained, and uses only guitar, bass, drums and keys and are a perfect complement  for Hudson’s vocals. 
Track List: 1. Rasta Communication 2. Felt We Felt The Strain 3. Bloody Eyes 4. Rasta Country 5. I Broke The Comb 6. I’m Not Satisfied 7. I’m No Fool 8. Jonah 9. Musicology 10. I Won’t Compromise 11. Nah Skin Up (12” Mix)
