MIDNIGHT RAVER’S Black Uhuru ‘Rare & Brutal’ Selections

This mix was inspired in me yesterday when I found an original pressing of Black Uhuru’s ‘Love Crisis’ (Jammy’s) at the great Crooked Beat Records on 18th Street, NW in Washington, DC yesterday.  Impossible find…

This is a fine selector’s mix of some of the rare Black Uhuru 7″ and 12″ discs from my collection.  Also in the mix are a few album selections from the vastly underrated ‘Brutal’ album produced by our friend Doctor Dread.  Make sure to check the opener, Michael Rose singing over Niney’s  mix of “Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner.”  Check the 3-tune riddim mini-mix which includes Junior Reid’s “Chanting”, Black Uhuru’s “Dread In The Mountain”, and Midnite’s “Hi Speeches.”  Also the track meld on “Heathen” and “Willow Tree” where I meld the originals from 1977’s ‘Love Crisis’ with the outstanding remakes on 1990’s ‘NOW.’  Interesting stuff here…

  1. Nice job….don’t forget the very underrated Iron Storm, as well.

    I would love to see a mix of post Bob Wailers music. I believe they have had 4 albums.
