The Legend – Various Artists,Atra Disc 1980

The Legend, front

On Atra Disc we find an LP with some of the finest of
reggae artists. It opens with 4 tracks by the great Augustus
Pablo. The genius and his melodica. I usually prefer songs
but Augustus’ instrumentals make a big exeption. All numbers
are backed by these swell musicians; Thin Legs-Carlton Barret
on drums, Family Man on Bass, Leroy Sibbles – rhythm guitar
and Ossie Hirbert on organ. Only track #6 is backed by ‘Umojo
Group’. Love that Max Romeo song, ‘Crime does not pay’,
and how about I Roy singing: “Ya Ya Yahama”…
