A rootsy introduction to Pablo Moses.

Sampler

In early 2017 legendary Jamaican roots singer Pablo Moses is expected to drop his first new studio album in seven years. And to increase interest in this singer a new best of album has recently been put out.

Pablo Moses - The Revolutionary Years (1975-83)The Revolutionary Years 1975-1983 includes three cuts each from Pablo Moses’ first four albums Revolutionary Dream (1975), A Song (1980), Pave the Way (1981) and In the Future (1983). The first two albums are bona-fide masterpieces, but the quality drops slightly from there on.

Pablo Moses has a unique voice. It’s peaceful, high and cool and clashes nicely with his revolutionary and conscious words. The production on his first three albums were handled by Geoffrey Chung and his style is – much like Pablo Moses singing – slick and cool as ice.

There is hardly a dull moment on this disc. Yet I wonder why hit songs like I Man a Grasshopper and We Should Be in Angola – taken from his debut album – are not included. An oddity like the title track from In the Future could also have been left out.

But a cut like the militant Ready, Aim, Fire, or beautiful songs like Sister and A Song, certainly make up for those minor flaws. Get ready to (re)-discover Pablo Moses.
