A Miracle, indeed 1 Upon first listen i get excited and hyped up. Not ever since hearing Bob + The Wailers back in the seventies I felt so inspired by any Reggae record like this one here. Groundation waves the flag firm and high for Roots reggae and positive vibrations . I-Livity in all aspects They often involved elders from the Reggae heydays to be part of their projects. Don Carlos, Ijahman, The Congos, Pablo Moses and Ras Michael to name those who were regulars. But don't get fooled. The Lead singer Harrison Stafford is the main voice of Groundation. What exactly is the formula behind Groundations magic ? Superb music with a good dose of Jazz improvisation to carry 6 or 8 minute Tunes. Something you don't find in Jamaica. BUT don't let the Jazz tag fool you. They can rock hard and ride a riddim nicely. The other ingredient is the horn section. Roots Reggae without horns is weak by definition ! Great lyrics and good compositions make up another part of Groundation.
This album here is simply fantastic. Using Marcia Grifith and esp. Judy Mowatt to the fullest brings back that unique BMW magic. Judy is esp. great. Using the phrasings of her 'Black Woman' La Da Di brings me back to 1979 immediately. The clever use of Marley quotes in the following track reinforces the vibe-Hold your Head up is another anthem and even though there are 2 or 3 weaker tunes the album never lets you down, turning up the heat once more with the fine last 2 songs. Don't let this pass you by..
