This is not a reissue pressing. This is actually a first pressing, indicted by the CSM - 1 etching in the run off. I worked at Island at the time of release and got an original copy from the first shipment to the NY office. The top right corner of the jacket has a die cut indicating it is a promotional copy.

This is the 2nd Nigerian release. The first was done by EMI (Nig.) in 1976 and was added in this site a few days ago, with a different sleeve printing.

I'm very happy with this translucent violet reissue of "War Ina Babylon" from 4MenWithBeards. The sound is nice and clear, and the vinyl looks and plays great. The music is classic black ark reggae and speaks for itself. Highly recommended from me!

Compares to 1976 Island records pressing, the sound seems to be a little bit compressed. Bass is louder and treble's less clear.
The difference is thin, it sounds good anyway.
I must try to compare with first CD releases now ...

This original USA Island pressing sounds great! A big difference to the original UK, palm tree label, issue which is really lacking power. Some superior mastering here!

The warm voice of Max Romeo and the sound of Black Ark studio just do wonders! A classic!

One of the finest album covers & pieces of artwork for an LP ever! And that genius Lee 'Scratch' Perry is at the forefront of this all time classic Reggae album again, accompanied by Max Romeo's searing vocals. Just check 'One Step Forward', 'War Inna Babylon' & 'Chase The Devil' for some stunning roots action & three of the best pieces of reggae ever.
