OPEN THE IRON GATE 1973-1977 - MAX ROMEO
CD: Blood & Fire
1999


Three Blind Mice
Fire Fe De Vatican

The great Max Romeo is best known for his excellent War Ina Babylon album for Scratch, but his career certainly goes beyond that. Open The Iron Gate is made up of Max's 1975 Revelation Time album as well as other tracks from the period. "Three Blind Mice" and the corrosive "Fire Fe De Vatican" were recorded at the Black Ark, produced by Max and engineered by Scratch. This is some of the dreadest and heaviest reggae ever recorded.
