Rhythm From The Riddim Twins

If your knowledge of reggae is limited to Bob Marley, this is a good place to branch out. Many reggae fans will tell you to check out Peter Tosh or Burning Spear, but I think Black Uhuru is a better start. Black Uhuru avoids Tosh's ominousness and Burning Spear's political stance in favor of preaching social solidarity a la Bob Marley. This compilation is a lil' bit of everything, including some cheesy 80s synthesizers.

Please say thanks and please report any broken links.

Looks like it's time for me to give something back...

black uhuru's 1981 album : black sounds of freedom:

To me, this is the best Uhuru album. The dub version of this album by Sly and Robbie is also a must have.

Thanks for all the good tunes!
