Romeo, Max - Open The Iron Gate Open The Iron Gate
Reggae Used - LP UA-LA803-H United Artists
1978 Issue As Volume 5 In The Anthology Of Reggae Collectors Series. “Though Max Romeo Got His Start Singing Smutty Novelty Tunes (His First Big Jamaican Hit Was Titled "Wet Dream"), He Later Turned To Serious Political And Religious Themes, And While He Always Had Some Trouble Gaining The Respect He Deserved As A Singer, The Recordings He Made In The Mid-'70s At The Harry J Studio, At Randy's, And Especially At Lee Perry's Black Ark Are Some Of The Most Powerful Of That Period, When Much Timeless Music Was Being Made In Those Studios. This Marvelous Collection Brings Together Some Of The Best Singles Of The Period, Most Of Them In Tandem With Their Dub Versions. Romeo's Sweet Tenor Voice And Effortless Delivery Belie The Lyrical Content Of These Songs, Which Is Invariably Dread, Dread, Dread.” - Rick Anderson, AMG... more details
 
Romeo, Max - War Ina Babylon War Ina Babylon
Reggae Used - LP MLPS 9392 Island
Beautiful 1976 Pressing Released Shortly After The Deadly Rare Federal LP. “Like The Epochal Police & Thieves By Junior Murvin, Which Also Originated At Lee "Scratch" Perry's Black Ark Studio And Thus Shares With This Album Perry's Trademark Dark, Swampy Ambience, War Ina Babylon Is Something Of A Mountain On The Reggae Landscape. But What Makes It So Remarkable Is Not Just The Consistently High Quality Of The Music -- Indeed, By 1976 One Had Come To Expect Nothing But The Finest And Heaviest Grooves From Perry And His Studio Band, The Upsetters -- Rather, It's The Fact That Max Romeo Had Proved To Be Such A Convincing Singer Of Cultural (Or "Conscious") Reggae After Several Years Of Raking It In As A Purveyor Of The Most Abject Slackness. (His "Wet Dream" Had Been A Huge Hit In England Several Years Earlier, And Had Been Followed By Such Other Delicacies As "Wine Her Goosie" And "Pussy Watch Man.") But There's No Denying The Authority Of His Admonishing Voice Here, And The Title Track (Which Describes The Violent Mood During Jamaica's 1972 General Election) Has Remained A Standard For Decades. Other Highlights Include "One Step Forward" And "Smile Out A Style." Essential To Any Reggae Collection.”... more details
