5.0 out of 5 stars 'The' classic British reggae album, 26 Jun. 2001
This review is from: Handsworth Revolution (Audio CD)
Birmingham's Steel Pulse provided us with the only truly great British reggae album of the last 30 years in 1978's Handsworth Revolution. Seven great reggae musicians from all over north Birmingham, ie ,Lozells, Handsworth and Handsworth Wood, got together to create an unforgettable sound that is true to the roots of Jamaican reggae, unlike the over-commercialised offerings of UB40 and Aswad throught the 1980s (although both bands did strive for authenticity on their first couple of albums).
There is a real positive vibe to this music, with classics such as Klu Klux Klan, Sound System and Prodgical Son (a Top 40 hit) providing the standout moments.
Meanwhile, fellow Brummies UB40, together with Aswad, were waiting in the wings with their crossover reggae-pop for the 'reggae-ignorant' mainstream audience. Forget this lot, this is true reggae with real spirit.

How I agree with the above. Recently pulled out the old vinyl collection and found HR in amongst. Great nostalgia. Great album.
