Love Thy Neighbour was the last definitive album to be recorded at the Black Ark. In the confusing final days of the Ark, Ras Michael and friends recorded a number of heavier-than-lead tracks that mark a high point in their careers. A mix of Nyahbinghi drums and traditional instruments bathed in excessive echo and reverb make Love Thy Neighbour a truly unforgettable work, and a fitting "conclusion" to the glory days of the Black Ark. Highly recommended.
