|CONSCIOUS MAN - THE JOLLY BROTHERS
LP: Roots RR1
CD: Roots RRCD001
Conscious Man gathers together the tracks that the talented Jolly Brothers recorded at the Black Ark in 1977. An album wasn't released at the time; we had to wait almost 20 years for this one. Since its 1993 release, this album is often hard to find, seemingly pressed in limited quantities every few years. But it's certainly worth tracking down: this is wonderful music. If this album would have been picked up by Island at the time, no doubt the Jolly Brothers would have been a lot more famous. Highlights include the title track, the terrific "Brotherly Love", and "Babylon A Fight Rasta". Highly recommended.
