A very over-looked UB40 recording. This is an incredible cd, my favorite UB40 release!!

"Geffery Morgan" was the follow-up to UB40's breakthrough album "Labour of Love". It had favorable sales, but I think it was a disappointment to those buyers looking for another "Red Red Wine". As such, its been sort of an overlooked release, sandwiched between UB40's purer reggae/dub releases earlier in their career and the less-adventurous radio-friendly "reggae karaoke" they seem to be into these days. But "Geffery Morgan" is one of the great UB40 albums, with some of the best original material they ever did. The opening trio of tunes, "Riddle Me", "As Always You Were Wrong Again" and "If It Happens Again" are incredibly strong, and set the tone of quality for the rest of the album. Other highlights include the beautiful "Seasons", the jazzy experimental "the Pillow", the superb "I'm Not Fooled So Easily", and one of their great closers "You Eyes Were Open". This is truly UB40's transitional album. While the reggae groove is still strong, in many songs ("Riddle Me", "You're Not An Army") you can sense their movement to the mainstream. Note that their next U.S. release, "Little Baggariddim" featured their Top 40 remake of "I Got You Babe", followed by the "Rat In The Kitchen" album, full of watered-down reggae hits. If you're looking for the last, best representation of UB40 as accessable but authentic REGGAE BAND, this album is highly recommended.

Fans of UB40 may realize the word "UB40" itself should be a type of reggae because of the band's uniqueness. This uniqueness is written all over this album, the mellow voice of Ali Cambell, the suttle beats, and the all-round originality. This is great reggae CD, all UB40 fans must get this.

A UB40 album that never got its due . . . Nov. 26 2002

My favorite UB40 album June 8 2006
By Tell It Like It Is - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I agree with other reviewers that this is a great album that gets overlooked. I have "Riddle Me" and "I'm Not Fooled" on 12" long play vinyl singles. Its great to have a digital music copy now. For roots reggae purists, UB40 did become too commercial as they went on, as did many bands of the era. This album still had some real reggae sound and hadn't totally crossed over yet. Its totally worth having in your classic reggae collection. There are a few songs that are more like African jazz, but overall, this is a reggae album.

Recently bought, what a surprise! Oct. 20 2004
By Julio Marchena - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It's incredible, UB40 never finishes to surprise me. Last week I bought this album, basically motivated for a presentation alive of "Riddle Me" and "You Are Not An Army" I could watch.

What a nice time I got when listen to for first time "As Always You Were Wrong Again" and "I'm Not Fooled So Easily", really good songs touched with the base line of Earl "Mr. Boostman" Falconer. The lyrics are surrounded of politics that reflects the discomfort they felt with Madam Medussas's goverment and the circustances of the time.

39:34 minutes of deep Reggae, DUB and Ska with the incomparable UB40 styleeeeee.
Great CD, Great Price! Sept. 19 2013

Classic must have tunes for the collection, better buy the stuff before it all goes digital and disappears or prices go through the virtual roof
You MUST Own This June 21 2013

One of their best - each song is captivating, funky, and you HAVE to love those repeat clap effects.

This is not a roots album - if that is all you like - forget the title of this review and avoid.

If you aren't defined by classifications, & are open to a broader base of reggae styles - get this, replay value is high.

Praise Jah for his only begotten Son Jesus Christ! Peace.
