Beyond Essential.
Deep Roots Masterpiece. The Greatest Live Reggae Album & quite possibly the Greatest Live Album, regardless of genre. Something special about this one that transcends genre & era boundaries like only very few Albums can.

As others already said, this is the best live reggae record ever made (and I listen and collect dub & reggae since 1980).
The introduction is 100% pure Rastafarianism and the record follows in the same way.
A real masterpiece.

Agreed with comments below - probably the best live album ever made and quite possibly the best reggae album of all times. Far from "easy skanking", this is deeply serious and almost warrior like. If Dope - Die Motherfucker Die is the anthem for American anti-terror warriors, this album is the "war preparation" music for the righteous Rasta. Truly powerful music from a legendary, yet strangely ignored, band from the golden UK-years.

Man Kind featured in legendary BBC radio DJ John Peel's 1984 My Top Ten programme and also in his later Desert Island Discs recording.

"If you are not conscious of the present, you are like a cabbage in this society."

So goes one of the most famous, much-sampled opening monologues in music. Just to echo what others have said - an essential record. Not just one of the best live albums but simply one of the best albums. Deeply, deeply spiritual. "Music which tells about the future and the judgement which is to come..."
