|REGGAE IN AMERICA - LION
LP: House Of Natty HofN 101
Lion Zion was a young American reggae artist who showed up at the Black Ark one day to record. While some don't rate this album that highly, it is enjoyable listening and completely unique. With constant references to American situations, the material is in some ways even more relevant today than it was in 1976. Highlights include "Arise America", "Who Killed The Buffalo", and the humorous "Gas Guzzler". A nice album that certainly needs to be given a CD re-issue.
