Product Description

"Satta Massagana" is one of the greatest reggae albums by the most inspired of Jamaica's vocal groups, The Abyssinians. This album is filled with great performances, as well as two of reggae's greatest tracks, "Declaration of Rights" and the song that serves as reggae's national anthem "Satta Massagana". Track for track this album achieves a breathtaking clarity of vision. This digitally remastered release restores the album plus extra tracks to its former glory, showcasing the vocal trio's stunningclose harmonies. So good, it even got name-checked on The Clash's "Jimmy Jazz".

The thing about great music is you can't really explain in prosaic terms what makes it special - it's always impossible to describe the sum of the parts and, above all, the way it feels, how it moves you. So how can I explain to you how great this music is? It defined a genre, it must have the most reused phrase in the whole of reggae (the unforgetteable, irresistible opening riff from the title track), it is sweet, but it's hard too and it doesn't compromise. All of which doesn't even begin to tell you what it's like to listen to this. Think for a moment about what nine quid means to you - a few pints? a couple of rides in a cab? Now consider this record could make a lasting, positive change to your life, have a little faith in these reviews and buy this.

This is THE spiritual album in the Reggae genre.an absolute classic!The whole package,from the songwriting and production to the performance itself is just pure class.The vocals are haunting yet joyuos and the musicians beuatifully restrained.A must for every conscious man/woman.Every track is a killer plus 4 extra rare tunes it's a steal.Go buy it now!

This has to be one of the all time great Reggae albums, a must for every collection. Haunting melodies, tight rhythms, and spiritual lyrics - if you only have one reggae album in your collection, it should be this one.

Satta Massagana is, without question, one of the most amazing albums I've ever had the pleasure to listen to. I thought "Arise" was brilliant, but "Satta..." even surpasses this. Superb, unique harmony and tight, hard roots reggae combine to form the terrific back bone of this marvellously crafted work of art. All the tracks are wonderfully colourful and are littered with instantly memorable riffs and choruses. If you love reggae as much as I do, it is critical that you purchase this album because, quite simply, it'll be the best few quid you ever spend.

Golden harmonies,deep roots and serious culture.I dred the question who is your favoriate, this either comes from the young or those think reggae, it must be Bob Marley. If pushed this get my vote in the reggae section.
Forget your happy,clappy,touchy,feely church and listen to this for spirt. No need to draw upon bush for staying high, this will keep you on an even plane. Be carefull you could drift off and startle awake at 3am with hi-fi lights still on.
