Black Uhuru Black Sounds Of Freedom on LP
In 1977, the now iconic King Jammy was enlisted to mix the dub counterpart to "In the Light," Everton DaSilva's classic production for Horace Andy. The versions Jammy concocted simultaneously proved that he was well versed in the techniques acquired from King Tubby and that he had developed a distinct mixing voice of his own.
That same year, he made his first notable venture into production work, recording the debut of Black Uhuru, a young vocal trio from Kingston. The resulting 1981 album Love Crisis (and its remixed incarnation, Black Sounds of Freedom) represented a breakthrough for both parties thanks to their inclusion of classics like "I Love King Selassie," "Satan Army Band" and "African Love."
Throughout their career, Black Uhuru have become ambassadors of reggae on a worldwide scale and influenced countless artists around the globe. With 14 full length albums, 7 instrumental dub albums, and 4 live albums they have the highest record sales in reggae music behind Bob Marley.
