East Of The River Nile

(Jet Set) Used CD $15.00

A must-have classic, originally released in 1977 on the Message label, by one of Jamaica’s canonical reggae and dub musicians. Recorded in Lee “Scratch” Perry’s legendary Black Ark Studio and mixed by the Scientist of Sound King Tubby, backed by a first-rate band that includes Robbie Shakespeare on bass, drummer Aston “Family Man” Barrett, and guitarist Earl “Chinna” Smith. This 2012 reissue delivers a nondub instrumental album — meditational with a dark undercurrent and a surreal atmosphere — that serves as the syncopated soundtrack of the Rasta nation. Sealed
