Black Man Land

Black Man Land

by Prince Far I
     
 
The legendary gravel-voiced deejay is commemorated nicely on this generous collection, which combines the entirety of his 1981 album Livity with seven tracks from his earlier Message From the King. The Arabs provide a strong, supple instrumental backing for Far I's declamatory chanting -- song titles like "Armageddon," "King of Kings" and "Moses, Moses"

Overview

The legendary gravel-voiced deejay is commemorated nicely on this generous collection, which combines the entirety of his 1981 album Livity with seven tracks from his earlier Message From the King. The Arabs provide a strong, supple instrumental backing for Far I's declamatory chanting -- song titles like "Armageddon," "King of Kings" and "Moses, Moses" will give you an idea of the general mood and lyrical thrust. Everywhere on this album, the mood is slow, smoky and serious, and aficionados of this particular brand of roots reggae will love every minute of it. This disc also makes an excellent introduction for newcomers.
