Heart Of The Congos

The Congos
One of reggae’s most classic albums

Anything on the Blood & Fire record label is worth buying at least once and this is one of Lee Perry's finest, lushest production jobs. Massive vocal harmonies and all the crazy tinkling, shimmering percussion we have come to respect from one of reggae's great visionaries and survivors. I can't help thinking that a whole busload of ganja must have gone into the making of this one, but you really don't need anything but functioning lugholes to be blown across your living room by it.
