10 Ft. Ganja Plant continue to impress on their seventh album.


John Brown’s Body is one of the most popular reggae bands in the U.S. 10 Ft. Ganja Plant comprises several members of that outfit, but their music leans more towards authentic 70’s roots reggae.

On 10 Ft. Ganja Plant’s seventh album – only one year after the concept album '10 Deadly Shots' – they continue to impress with tight riddims and dubwise arrangements.

10 Ft Ganja Plant - Shake Up The Place'Shake up the Place' contains ten tracks – always ten or eleven on their albums – with several prominent guest artists.

Sylford Walker, Prince Jazzbo and The Meditations certainly sound very comfortable. Sylford Walker is close to Burning Spear in the apocalyptic My Roots and Prince Jazzbo’s flow on the relevant Recession is an excursion back to the 70’s.

But 'Shake up the Place' is more than great vocals. Several of the tunes are instrumentals and the musicianship is flawless throughout. Just listen to the harmony between the guitars, piano and organ in the title track or the trumpet solo in Ringers Rock. Pure gold.

'Shake up the Place' shakes up the more than the place – it shakes up the world.
