SONS OF JAH - JAH ALONE
DUBROOM (DUB) REGGAE VIDEO REVIEW
WWW, February 2009 - Live at the Nottingham Carnival, three decades ago: here is a strong performance by a strong UK Roots Reggae Band that has not received the attention they should have.
Even though the sight and sound of this video are obviously dated, three decades ago this was brand new and it would still be an extremely good experience when the Sons of JAH would have performed this just the other day.
Good Roots, indeed, is timeless.
So let's go back these three decades, and see a band that was part of what was really a brand new Movement of UK based Reggae bands who, inspired by the success of Bob Marley and the Wailers, decided to pick up the Roots and make it grow.
The band is extremely concentrated, the vibe is extremely heartical, and the dubby end of the 5:20 long tune is extremely appreciloved.
