Sky High & Mau Mau Present Marcus Garvey Chant

The cover was obviously a rush job, but the music is far more interesting: modern cultural singers Yami Bolo, Half Pint and Garnet Silk, along with deejays Tony Rebel and Ricky Chaplin. What makes the set essential is the first side, taken up by three versions of Jackie Mittoo's "Drum Song" classic, and including the voice of Marcus Garvey from half a century before: one of the most atmospheric sides in reggae.
