Product Description

Product Description

Culture's debut album and one of the finest reggae albums ever released. Originally released in 1977, Joseph Hill's new vocal trio captured the pressure of social and econimic life and the growing spirit of Rastafari in Kingston, Jamaica. His vision of 1977 as a year of judgement - when Two Sevens Clash - when past injustices would be avenged, reached much futher than Jamaica and reggae circles making this one of the albums of the year. Still as vital as ever in the 21st Century, TWO SEVENS CLASH stands-out as a landmark album setting a new standard for reggae music. An inspired work of enduring power.

One of the best ever roots albums. These sounds were everywhere when released,and crossed over making this album popular with dreads and punks alike. Championed by john Peel and part of the soundtrack to 1977 if you wernt there then get this to get da flava,if you were then get it to remember. The best in roots harmonies.

If so, you'll be sure to find consolation in the words and music of the song of the same name in Culture's legendary CD. Nothing much can really be added to the global praise of this near hypnotic music. It belongs to the period when reggae was truly King. Yes, in the 1970's we came close to Natty Dread Taking Over. Not standard dancehall ragga so it merits a high level of mental attention. It's as close as reggae ever came to a spiritual mass for the living (with a few other instances of Jamaican inspiration, for sure). Jah Arise!

By Keith M TOP 500 REVIEWER on 18 May 2012
Format: Audio CD
Culture's 1977 debut album Two Sevens Clash was, for me, the highlight of a period, roughly covering the mid-1970s to mid-1980s, when the public profile of reggae music in the UK was at its highest, bringing with it an outstanding set of artists and record releases. Whilst many British bands from this era were establishing themselves, such as Steel Pulse, Matumbi, Aswad and (my favourite) Misty In Roots, and (rightly) casting aside such reggae-copyists as UB40, it was (of course) from Jamaica that the truly authentic sound (and, undoubtedly, the best music) was emanating. This music covered quite a wide range of reggae styles, from the more populist sounds of the likes of Bob Marley and The Wailers, The Gladiators, Denis Brown and Gregory Isaacs, through to the heavier (often more dub-based) sounds of the likes of Tapper Zukie, Dillinger and U-Roy. For me, however, no band combined these two elements more effectively than Joseph Hill's band Culture and no record from this era bettered their album Two Sevens Clash.

Produced by the legendary Jamaican producer Joe Gibbs and featuring the equally famous rhythm section of Sly Dunbar (on drums) and Robbie Shakespear (on guitar), the album contains 10 songs, all of them successful in providing an outstanding mix of Hill's impassioned lead vocals, lyrics infused with spiritual yearnings and protest, and backed with brilliant melodies and hooks. It really is something of a thankless task trying to pick highlights from such an outstanding album, but if pressed, I would highlight the brilliance of I Am Not Ashamed, I'm Alone In The Wilderness, See Them A Come, Jah Pretty Face and the masterpiece that is the album's title song.

I should stress that this album is not just an album for reggae aficionados, but is essential listening for anyone with an interest in (good) music.

Firstly, and foremostly Joseph Hill was a legend, a genius and a great ambassador for world peace. He lives on through the music of Culture, probably no more than through this incredible album of pure beauty. The lyrics are sung with exquisite passion, the music and melodies are so uplifting that it is impossible not to get swept away. Joseph had that rare ability - to sing of oppression and social injustice with a smile, but without diminishing in any way his statement of intent. This album sat proudly next to my Punk collection back in '77 and it's as outstanding now as it was back then. But don't stop here, Culture made around 22 albums. Save your pennies and get Culture'd.

It's true that reggae albums often fall short of the quality and consistency expected of rock albums (although for the life of me i can't think of one right now... ice on fire?), and this is to be expected considering how prolific the artists were. Mostly, they released hundreds of songs for numerous producers, many of which were great; many, not so great. However, Two sevens clash is fantastic. Its the sgt peppers of reggae, it might not be your favourite but its the best, anyone can see that. So buy the culture 4 disc box set on vp records, its cheap, good sound quality and I think one of the discs has a twelve inch version of jah see them a come, which is great.

This is an album that I grew up with, but lost along the way. So glad that I can listen to it again and unlike some music it's as fresh as ever.
