DUBROOM MP3 REVIEW
WWW, December 2008 - When the first 4 minutes of sound checking is over, the recording starts and gets more and more interesting as the Soul Syndicate open up with some crucial instrumentals only to go over and serve as the backing band for Big Youth.
The year is 1981. Studio band the Soul Syndicate has made a name as well did Big Youth, who toasted over many Dub riddims allready. The band and the DJ decide to take the concept on stage and they do so in Chicago, Illinois.
In the city where Al Capone has his syndicate, the Jamaican artists bring some upfull vibes. Starting with a little sound check which takes about 4 minutes, the band follows to open up for the MC with a set of nice instrumentals.
When Big Youth enters, the atmosphere is already strong and the result is a strong concert, as Big Youth toasts and sings. In that singing, you can hear how this served somehow as an inspiration for later artists like Sizzla.
However, this was still in 1981 and you can hear that in the recording as well as the instruments. Know your history, know your destiny!
