Max Romeo's biggest record ever, apart from his early (then) X-rated "Wet Dream." This is the apex of his mid-70s career, combining his unique wailing style with the production hand of Lee Perry. The most famous track is "Chase The Devil," which some of you may recognize from the huge rave hit that sampled it back in the early 90's or Jay-Z's use on the Black Album. The whole first side is crucial though, check classic tracks like "One Step Forward" and "War Inna Babylon." And not to take anything away from this album, but a lot of people who can't get past Bob Marley in terms of reggae progression really like this album. Maybe because his accent is thin? Anyway it's both a heavy roots classic and a fairly accessible album for the casual listener. Quite an accomplishment. Official 2018 pressing on red colored vinyl courtesy of 4 Men With Beards.
