The Congos - The Heart of the Congos (1993)

For fans of: Bob Marley, The Abyssinian
Genre: Reggae, Culture Roots, Dub
Download: Mediafire

There is only one, simple way of describing this record: it is the fuckin finest dub reggae around man! The production value is phenomenal and, as Lee "Scratch" Perry is involved it should come as no surprise that through an experimental feel, the very essence of The Congos survives. As this is a second look at the initial 1977 recording of The Heart of the Congos by Cedric Myton and Roy Johnson, I implore everyone to look further into this cultural phenomena, as the entirety of these recordings and mixes are numerous and quite elusive.
