Information

Mr Music has appeared over the years under a variety of titles. 'Rainbow Country' and also as 'Highway Riding' This Pressure Sounds release is an exclusive dub plate version that has not been releases before. Like Natural Mystic it first appeared on a Daddy Kool 12''. But the version we have is more stripped down and Sound System friendly. A bit slower and a bit deeper. Altogether more raw musically and Marley's vocals are clear and concise. Its clear he loved working with Perry.

Reviews

  • Norman Grant & Tommy McCook  - Mathew Mark Luke and JohnNorman Grant & Tommy McCook Mathew Mark Luke and John

    Both sides of this Treasure Isle pearl are lovely. In particular the 'Sweet Lorna'. Well presented and pressed. Comes from the Lionel Messi of rocksteady (although Messi is possibly taller) Tommy Rock a Shacka of Japan.

  • Baba Brooks Band  - Flames in the streetBaba Brooks Band Flames in the street

    Ouch!! This is bad. Meaning very good. The 'Flames in the Street' is a dizzy vamp that is totally hypnotic. If only music being made now was still this vital. I'm Gonna Move on is basically in the same groove. Essential!!

    Another fascinating compilation from Numero Group's catalog which finds obscure gospel artists embracing the devil in funk and soul music, featuring primitive choirs, spacious breaks, congas, elderly rappers impersonating the devil, cast recordings and thumping bass.
