This review is from: Dread Locks Dread (Audio CD)
Big Yout' - probably the greatest toaster ever (Knowledgeable reggae fans all over the world gasp in shock and reach for their U-Roy albums!)
This is my fave toasting set. Love U-Roy...love I-Roy! Prince Jazzbo - wow! Yabba Yout...Tapper Zukie...love all that stuff.......
But you have to remember....."Lightning strike anda weak 'eart drop".
I think that says it all, me bredren and sistren, don't you?
His greatest album. Oh, and, by the way...love de teet'!

5.0 out of 5 stars dread, 4 Feb 2011
This review is from: Dread Locks Dread (Audio CD)
Your tuned to force radio one in the land, with a temperature of 85 degrees for a night, kinda warm in Kingston today baby....
This album is probably the most important and greatest reggae albums of all time.
The gang of four recently played a track from it on their session for radio 6..

5.0 out of 5 stars A forgotten Reggae Masterpiece, 19 Sep 2011
By 
D. Beeston (STONE, Staffordshire United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Dread Locks Dread (Audio CD)
I have enjoyed listening to Reggae Music for almost 40 years, but this is one album that I keep going back to. From the first chord until the last there is not a single 'duff' track in sight. If you are like me you will recognize that some albums have a magical quality about them that defies description but at the same time communicates 'completeness.' This is one of those albums. When I look at my record collection I can see that this happens (at least for me it does) about once in every couple of hundred album releases. Here are some examples; The National - Boxer; Kate Bush - The Hounds of Love; Joy Division - Joy Division; The Turbines - Last Dance til Highway; Noah and the Whale: The First Day of Spring. I am sure you will have your own equivalent list. Give this album a chance and you won't be disappointed, whether your new to reggae or an old hand this is one album you cant miss!
