Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Perhaps reflecting Lucky Dube's own studiousness, The Rough Guide to Lucky Dube comes with a liner note of exemplary informativeness. Born in Transvaal in 1964, Lucky Dube, Africa's reggae-king, was passionate about history before he got bitten by the reggae bug, and spent his early manhood working as a librarian while chasing up Peter Tosh records in Zimbabwe. His first musical incarnation was as a singer of mbaqanga--the pop style that was sweeping the townships--but after Bob Marley's appearance at Zimbabwe's independence celebrations, Lucky chose the reggae route. His first reggae album was censored, but his second was passed and immediately established him as a top-selling African star. Since then he has collaborated with Peter Gabriel, Sting and Michael Jackson, starred at the Reggae Sunsplash Festival and Womad, and taken the rest of the world by storm. What's most striking about this retrospective collection is the consistency of both his style and his message: this is unashamedly commercial music, with super-slick backing and studio effects, but its spirit is that of a political crusade for decency between races and nations. And his voice comes from the heart, to the heart. --Michael Church

Excellent compilation of African reggae legend 27 Aug. 2013
By islander - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This 2001 Rough Guide album contains 15 songs by the sadly now deceased South African reggae legend Lucky Dube. Dube was phenomenonally popular throughout Africa and this compilation contains many of his biggest hits.
This is fantastic reggae music, with his smooth voice and female backing vocalists standout features. The music is joyful and upbeat despite the usually serious lyrical content, dealing with issues like apartheid, violence, injustice and corruption.
An excellent compilation, with informative liner notes. A good representation of his music up until 2001. Highly recommended!
