5.0 out of 5 stars feel the roots Jan. 2 2004
Format:Audio CD
Heaven forbid, but this album makes Bob Marley sound a little bit whitebread. It just sounds entrenched in root reggae. If you consider yourself possibly whitebread, I say that I probably am too, but I've had this album for about fifteen years and I still love it. It is melodious--it has catchy tunes--and it has a deeply authentic sound to match the heavy lyrics of "Marcus Garvey" or "The Invasion." There is no doubt this is bona fide reggae and musicianship, but you don't have to like anything besides good tunes to appreciate this album. It stands up over time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Dec 2 2009
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the best reggae records ever made. Truly authentic. A beautiful portrait of Rastafarian philosophy and spirit. It is a darkly primitive, hypnotic, yet highly sophisticated recording, with superb performances by everyone involved and masterfully produced. Many of these songs are performed live in the German-produced documentary "Reggae Sunsplash II" (look it up on You Tube). This recording was made in the heyday of the reggae sound and many of the key players of the scene were involved in it's making. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars try my best to live good..... May 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
from the very first track, this album captivated me and drew me in. and it kept getting better as i digged deeper. the vocal harmonies are absolutely soul-stirring, the horns providing the swinging underbelly in a remarkably apt fashion. for someone who is new to roots reggae, i couldnt have stumbled upon a better album to experiment with. sprinkled with devoutly rastafarian lyrics, especially "live good", it really is a feast for the soul. i really adore this album.
