Premier album de Third World (1976), C'est le moins bon des trois (Journey To Addis, 96° In The Shade' et donc celui là). Il trouvera néanmoins sa place chez tout les amateurs de Reggae et de Third World en particulier.
I first heard Third World when I went with a friend to a concert of theirs in (I think) 1988, when I was fortunate enough to be living and working in Kingston, Jamaica, and it was quite unlike anything I'd heard before. I bought a number of their early albums on vinyl over the next few years, and have always enjoyed their thoughtful fusion of reggae, blues and jazz. This, their first album at last re-released on CD, includes such great tracks as "Slavery Days", "Satta Amasa Gana" and "Freedom Song". Their roots in the history of Jamaica are real and heartfelt — probably their most famous track is "96 Degrees in the Shade" (from their second album, equally as good as this one). If you think reggae is all about the beat and the laid-back lilt, you should listen to Third World, and reconsider. This is as good a place to start as any. All their recordings made with Island Records are worth listening to; in fact, I think they include their best work. I thoroughly recommend this album, not just to reggae fans (for whom it's a must), but for anyone who appreciates the best in rock or jazz, too. Buy it.
