Largely considered to be one of the most outstanding reggae milestones of the early 80s (before it went a bit limp, ropey and wet) this amazing, vibrant and celebratory classic was produced by the legendary Sly & Robbie and is widely touted as BU's finest hour. I'm gleefully listening to 'Red' now so can confirm it really is a powerfully skanking, densely layered and plain important record. Great songs, rousing vocal interplay, deep meditative grooves. I know they went a bit pants but several folk have informed me that they were once a force to be reckoned with. 'Red' is clear evidence they were all 100% correct. It's got the lot. If you claim to love reggae but don't own this then sort it out yo. I just have.
