5.0 out of 5 stars Roots Treasure Hidden In Plain View, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ethiopian Kings (1975-80) (MP3 Download)
only discovered rod taylor very recently, having failed to notice his work in the 70s/80s. yup, it's probably the name, which doesn't jump out at you, as would, say, dr alimantado, eek a mouse, etc. and this is a great pity, as this is a superb collection of 14 of his finest, from a number of sources. not in this case, a couple of strong singles padded out with lesser quality material, the highest compliment i can pay this compilation is that i'm always disappointed when i've reached the end of the album.
it was thru' a chance listen to a monumental 12" of 'his imperial majesty' (here, in it's 7" form) that i took notice, and made a purchase of this instantly. a very strong singer with a hint of horace andy, a shadow of tristan palma about him, but distinctive in his songwriting and construction.
i shall be invetigating (and investing) further, having learned not to dismiss that, which may on the surface appear mundane. too late for a re-branding?
