Fresh Roots from the House of Riddim and Third World
*House of Riddim - Chapter II
High-quality Reggae from Austria... means: excellent production, good mixing and every track is a collaboration with outstanding artists like Michael Rose, Luckie D or Ranking Joe. Highly recommended, as you don't get to hear well produced Reggae very often nowadays. Plus: these tunes just... rock your bones!
* Third World - Black, Gold & Green
Great new album from the veterans; actually it's so good that they nominated it for this year's Grammy. I am not sure if this will be the winner, but Third World's version of Joe Higgs "There's A Reward" featuring Anna Fisher on Oboe would be worth a Grammy on its own.
* Whispering Lion - Real Revolution
Whispering Lion... what a fitting name for this soft-voiced singer outta California. Some exellent guitar-work on that album too - hear it first on this Roots Edition of Ackee & Saltfish.
Plus some more roots-niceness from Groundation, Dr. RingDing and others. Watch out for the next Roots-Edition, as we feature stuff from the "Young Tree Records"-label... one hour wikked Roots from the label's great catalogue so far.
