Ras Michael & The Sons Of Negus
Promised Land Sounds - Rockin' Live Ruff 'N' Tuff
LP | 1975 | UK | Reissue (Dug Out)
21,99 €*
Release:1975 / UK – Reissue
Genre:Reggae / Dancehall
“Rockin Live Ruff And Tuff”, this is the untrammeled counterpart to Dadawah, six years later in 1980, fresh from the Black Ark: free, raw spiritual trance-music; a full-force Nyabinghi freak-out. The drummers are headlong and rollicking, thunderous and explosive. Even more so than Dadawah, the mix is ecstatically filled with echoes; dub wise without let-up. Ras Michael himself sings from the mountain-top, like he just don’t care — at the top of his lungs, in voices, screeching like a bird — with the delirious abandonment otherwise owned in reggae by Lee Perry. Amongst the uncredited performances swirled into proceedings, there are squiggles of flute straight from the Upsetters song-book, the minor-key organ stabs and abstraction of electric space-jazz, and sax-playing more attuned to the Headhunters than the Blazing Horns. (I Ya I in particular is a stunning fifteen minutes.) This is the real thing, music without affectation. Pure reggae. Sun Ra fans should love it; anyone with ears to hear.Prepared and manufactured at Abbey Road, D&M and Pallas; beautifully presented in rigid, old-school, tip-on sleeves, with matt-coated fronts and untreated-paper backs; 180g vinyl.

Release:1980 / UK – Reissue
Genre:Reggae / Dancehall
Magnificent Nyabinghi roots warning: The one-and-only Eric Frater is drafted in from Studio One, playing killer rhythm guitar (with Chinna on lead); and likewise Dennis Ferron - Jah D - who leads the way with his spiritualized keyboard-work, keening between jazz and soul. You can hear Puma from Black Uhuru, singing with the Sons. Geoffrey Chung at Dynamic expertly pulls in the bass drum and keeping the mix raw and alive. The dub in particular is stunning - thumping, trenchant and brooding, so steeply dread and haunted it almost trips over its sense of yawning silence and doom.
