8/10 Dave Staff review, 02 September 2010

This curio is from a long forgotten film which was panned by the press. It was a massive flop and legend has it that it had the shortest (and most violent) run in Jamaican film history. Audiences were incensed and they rioted to get their money back. It had no storyline and it was more like a documentary on Rastafarianism - people wanted something big and beautiful and what they got was something else. By the third night the theatres were bereft of any audience and the film, and everything associated with it disappeared... Until now. It's a shame people don't take the same hard line of rioting when Hollywood bashes out another shit remake, or when ever Danny Dyer commits another "gritty" performance to celluloid but that's another matter. This album is actually fucking ace. Its funk-tinged reggae with sweet musicianship, and amazing songwriting. My favourite song at the moment is track 8, called "Rats In The Ghetto". It reminds me of my old house. This forgotten gem should be purchased by anyone with ears and a hankering for Blaxploitation. It pisses all over most modern day soundtracks. Buy it now....
