Kiddus I - Jah Power Jah Glory / Jah Power Version 12" Shepherd Dubstore Japan

£15.19

Kiddus I is the mysterious figure singing at the start of the film Rockers.

A graduate of Ras Michael's Sons Of Negus, a key member of The Wailers milieu, and a Black Ark artist, his recordings - centred on the Roots Reggae period - are marked by the openness of their musical horizons, and a striking originality and integrity. (Also during this era he was a key voice raised in the Jamaican music industry against political oppression.)

Yet Kiddus I's disdain for careerism has held him back from the spotlight - as so many people in Jamaican music will tell you.

Now, this revelatory, comprehensive retrospective will surely confirm his place amongst the all-time greats of reggae music.

Kiddus I- Jah Power, Jah Glory (12" Vinyl)

Recorded at Tuff Gong in 1979. Previously unreleased material from the original master tape.The title track from Kiddus I’s unreleased debut album ‘Jah Power, Jah Glory’. The lament song features fine acoustic guitar playing by Al Anderson, the guitarist of the Wailers Band. The B-side contains a pure version to the A-side. Another lost piece found from the time when Root Rock Reggae was in its heyday.
