This man was had a serious message to tell and this album delivered. It helped having such a tight and accomplished backing band but don't take it away from the words. They burn and crackle with barely repressed anger. They tell stories that makes the heart bleed with the waste described. "Madness...madness...madness tight on the heads of the rebels; the bitterness errupts like a hot-blast. broke glass; rituals of blood on the burning," He was giving witness to a new generation of discrimination and in the language of youth, the street patois of South London in particular. "Mi sae, lissen, oppressin man, hear what I say if yu can;" It was such a great and rich time for good reggae and Linton Kwesi Johnson with his unique voice added to its treasure.

Great product, good price quick delivery what more do you want? Oh nine more words... um well its good to listen to at this time of rioting and recall the political motivation of an earlier time with tracks like Dread Inna Inglan and Man Free, the heavy heavy atmosphere of Dread Beat an'Blood and Five Nights of Bleeding and the brilliant Song of Blood.

forgot just how good this album is. The music is so catchy with original tight rhythms while mr Johnsons poetry is beautifully written, powerful and full of thought provoking imagery. A true reggae classic.

My sister used to have this on vinyl, along with a few other LKJ albums, so I knew what I was getting. It has a couple of tracks that are out of the usual for LKJ, including the title track, but his work is from the heart and always packed with real feeling and meaning.

the voice of a generation- saw him without his band in the late 80s and the gig totally blew my mind, hypnotic.

Revisiting my yoof. Fantastic album, one of the greats, hypnotic rhythms, killer lyrics. Totally recommended for those who were there and newcomers alike. A gem from the golden age.

Dub poetry at it's most urgent and brooding. More than an album, this is a manifesto.
