Dread Hot In Africa (2016 reissue)


cd including bonus album 'propaganda'

Released: 6th May 2016



Released: 6th May 2016


1977's 'Dread Hot in Africa' coupled with 1978's 'Propaganda' issued on CD for the first time.

The backing band is The Revolutionaries with Robbie Shakespear (Bass) and Charly and Sly Dunbar (Drums). The album is awash in cultural classics, with "No Love," "Love in My Heart," and the glorious "Jah Jah Forgive Them" arguably the best of a stellar batch. Elsewhere the achy breaky heartache of "Just Tell Me" and the soulful "I Need You Girl" easily cement the singer's loverman reputation.
