Product Description

Product Description

Double 180 gram vinyl. Includes CD album. Silhouette is the new album from Ali Campbell, the legendary voice of UB40 reunited with Astro & Mickey. Recorded in London's renowned RAK Studios, the album is an inspired mix of freshly-minted new songs and sparkling, reggaefied cover versions of classics by The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Chi-Lites and others. The track Silhouette was originally a 1957 hit for the American doo-wop group The Rays, though this new, yearning take, owes more to an early 1970s version by the crown prince of reggae, the late Dennis Brown. As founding members of UB40, Ali, Mickey and Astro helped to define reggae music for a generation. The iconic Birmingham reggae troupe topped the UK singles chart on three occasions and sold 70 million records as they took their smooth yet rootsy musical blend to all corners of the globe. Campbell left the band in 2008 after 29 years and has since released four reggae-themed solo collections, with Mickey, who left UB40 soon after Ali, joining him on keys. Astro remained with the band until November 2013, when he left to team up again with Ali and Mickey. With the redoubtable Astro lending strong vocal support and Mickey's keyboards to the fore in a new band that includes a three-piece horn section, their lithe but potent sound should delight fans old and new.

Absolutely love it, have a few favourites on there. Love Track 2 Silhouette, Track 3 Cyber Bully Boys, listen to the lyrics, so very true about this type of person. Love Tracks 12 and 13, Track 6, Remember them, brilliant especially for this year as we remember our 1st World War heroes and all our military fighting our cause. Just a brilliant album and I cannot wait to see Ali, Micky and Astro in April live, I am sure they will be brilliant.
All in all, brilliant.

It's good.

UB40 are the soundtrack to many lives including mine, most followers probably just want them to be as they were and carry on, but if this is not to be then we'll carry on listening anyway.

Ali's voice is still good and Astro adds to a return of the overall UB40 feeling, good choice of songs, a nice mix and well produced.

Keep up the good work and remember to feed your fans what they want, no country, no rock, no roll…… JUST REGGAE !

**UPDATE 1 YEAR LATER**

This really is a classic album now, still playing one year later and sounds better now with familiarity. Best up loud with big speakers, try it. On a par with Guns in the Ghetto & Signing Off.

Best Thing Ali has done in 20 years in my opinion back to his best Also the second Sound of UB40 Astro finally Back with Ali the Band is Complete Ali and Astro are the Sound of UB40 always have been always will be Just a shame they had to leave the Original Band but no separation is nice :( Gotta love Cyber Bully Boy we all know where the inspiration for this song came From and No UB40 LP would be complete with out a Classic Cover Version and Dennis Browns Silhouette is Awesome track well done lads Rossy xxx

I downloaded free mp3 yesterday and after first listening, I thought another so so reggae cd hanging on the UB40 name. However after receiving theactual cd ,slotted into my Bose wave system, wound up the volume and it sounds great. Not too keen on Beatles ,Herman Hermits covers to start. After several plays they grow on you. So give it a whirl. Great

This album is just bloomin' fantastic, reminds me of the good old days when the original UB40 band did their best stuff, not that they ever did anything rubbish mind you.

Great tracks with a classic sound that proves once again that Ali's legendary voice is completely unrivalled when it comes to modern reggae music.

This could so easily be badged a UB40 album, its that good.

Well done sirs, keep em coming...
