U-Roy - Natty Rebel (Reissue)

description

U-Roy was a true reggae pioneer, dubbed The Originator for
good reason. Bursting onto the Jamaican scene in the early
1970s, he pioneered the vocal approach called “toasting,”
which in addition to bringing Jamaican music into a new era,
was also heavily influential on an American vocal style also in
its infancy: rapping.
Following up the Record Store Day 2017 release of U-Roy’s
classic Dread In A Babylon, Traffic Entertainment Group now
brings us a very welcome reissue of the vocalist’s 1976
full-length (and fourth) album, Natty Rebel, which has been
out of print for more than 30 years.
Produced by Tony Robinson (known for his work with Big
Youth, Lloyd Parks, the Gladiators and many more), the
album’s 11 cuts range from bouncier and sometimes even
disco-tinged grooves – “Have Mercy,” “Go There Natty” and
the album lead-off, “Babylon Burning” – to the classic roots
stepping that drew fans to the legendary Jamaican vocalist
over his long career – including “So Jay Jah Say” and “Natty
Kung Fu.”
At its core, this is a deep journey into the heart of rasta living,
spoken by one of Jamaica’s most underrated dub and roots
legends, and it’s one of the strongest full-lengths in his
expansive catalog.
Whether you are experiencing U-Roy for the first time, or
replacing your decades-old original LP, diving into this
reissue of Natty Rebel is one hell of a way to spend an
afternoon. Or, if you’re not careful, a week or two.
