This review is from: Unity Is Power (Audio CD)
Despite a career spanning over 30 years I'd never heard of him. Then this album popped up on my radar. He began as a songwriter for Toots & the Maytalls and Delroy Wilson. He was a music teacher and one of his pupils was Bob Marley. Joe Higgs probably had more influence over arguably the most famous reggae artist of all time than anyone else.
This album dates back to 1979 but has had a recent reissue. Joe Higgs has a very pleasant rich baritone voice and this album covers many bases of reggae and ska. It shows a very talented singer, songwriter, arranger and innovator and is a very fine album. I am delighted to have discovered it and strongly recommend a listen. On a sunny summer afternoon there can hardly be a better soundtrack.
