DZ comes correct on this release. A warm, full bass tone and a subdued jungly vibe carries this tune and the laid back vocal praising the chalice will nice-up any session!
Debut vocal appearance from Awaken Lion is simple and to the point. Keeps a roots vibe without going into parody territory.

Side A is straight to the head of those systems having success at the time introducing R&B into a less rootical reggae selection.

Side B keeps the rave alive with a shuffley, shifting drum pattern and washes of strings. Wonderful!

Well, I may be biased in favour of Canadian flavours and what, but I really love this record. Hasn't left my record box since release, possibly before.
Excellent vibes from the understated vocals, solid bassline, tambourine and tabla driven drum patterns make"Chalice a memorable tune for today, tomorrow, next year. A dancehall smasher. Sounds great at home and HUGE on a proper sound system.
"Bongo Dub" on the flipside starts with a broken-up with extra tension from the strings, then lays down a solid foundation of pulsating bass that propels the tune along.
