Greatness from Clinton Fearon.

Sampler

Clinton Fearon has managed to accomplish something that few other roots reggae heroes from the 60s and 70s have – to continue to release consistent and excellent albums in the 21st century. This ex-Gladiator’s solo output is just as great as the music he released together with Albert Griffiths and Gallimore Sutherland.

Clinton Fearon - GoodnessAnd his brand new album Goodness is no exception. Far from it. This 13 track album is just as great as his two previous sets Heart & Soul and Mi Deh Yah.

It was recorded in Seattle – where Clinton Fearon has lived since he relocated from Jamaica in the late 80s – and produced by himself. It’s a vibrant and earthy album that only collects freshly skanking originals packed with affecting harmonies, electrifying arrangements and unexpected instruments such as flute and strings.

Clinton Fearon rustic and unpolished tone is a joy listening to. And it suits the pulsating riddims and uplifting and joyous spirit of the album very, very well.

Clinton Fearon’s music has always been rooted in the classic sounds of the 70s with real instrumentation and live drums, horns and bass. Goodness – or should I say Greatness – is yet another fine example of how Clinton Fearon and his Boogie Brown Band takes the reggae legacy to the present day.

Goodness was released on March 24 in Europe and hits the U.S. on May 17.
