Yes I agree with ralphdogmusiclover's review above, don't let the dodgy recordings this band did in the 80's put you off. This is a superb reggae album. Often dismissed by reggae snobs as middle class reggae due to the privileged background of the band. This early Third World album is a gem. Slick production, sing along lyrics, and the whole album flows like a well thought out sound scape with excellent musician-man-ship. Its almost like a piece of classical music in the way it all flows and connects together. Whilst most reggae albums are a collection of the singles released by an artist this is a full concept album. One of my favourite albums, it almost leans towards pop reggae in production quality, think more Island records Wailer's albums than say the rough sounds of early Lee Perry albums.

Would suit someone new to reggae who's just finished listening to Bob Marley's Ledged album .... But is also so much more

A true deep reggae album with tracks that tells story's. For me Human market place sums up third world's "riddim" a chanting bouncing pace.All the tracks are good. 96°degrees in the shade, does exactly what it says on the tin.

buy this - play this

listen to jah glory melt into tribal war

deep, meaningful, political yet light and rhythmic, instrumental and harmonious

this is an album seeped with soul

this is one of the finest reggae albums

It has no relevance to later pop orientated recordings by this band

one of my top ten reggae albums easily as good as bob marley.
there are a few alternate versions added but nothing special.
it is time for a proper deluxe edition.
cool reggae used to be played for some relief in between the angry punk records.
there is a download of this album where most of the tracks are extended.
the title track is nearly 15 minutes long.
not sure if this is genuine or just a dj remix?

96 degrees in the shade, is a real favourite, Jamaican history simply told, I had forgotten how good the tracks are on this album if you like old school reggae with great musicianship you will like this

This is some of the most soothing reggae you're likely to hear ( sort of 'night nurse' ( Greg Isaacs ) like in a way ) and yet has the menacing rhythm of the slaver british system skanking in the backyard.
If you want to chill to intelligent music not for de babylon people. This is the one for you, true; sticks to the soul like glue. Harmony mon !
