Alborosie’s classic debut album reissued with four bonus cuts


Italian, nowadays Jamaican, reggae star, multi-instrumentalist, producer, mixing engineer and songwriter Alborosie has recently had his debut album Soul Pirate reissued.

AlborosieThe original set contained 18 tracks and the new and re-mastered version contains four bonus cuts, all of which has been previously released as singles or as part of a compilation.

Soul Pirate was originally released in 2008 with poor distribution and it was partly sold via concerts. And today it fetches high prices – on Discogs it starts at $25.00 for the CD version.

It’s an excellent album and might just still be his best yet. It collects several stunning and well-known singles, including the ground-shaking Rastafari Anthem, recorded over Zap Pow’s Last War, the powerful Kingston Town, on a version of the mighty When I Fall in Love riddim, and the pulsating Herbalist, on a remake of Black Uhuru’s Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner.

Alborosie started to rock the scene at a time when dancehall ruled and roots reggae was something odd in Jamaica. Alborosie was one of tipping points that ignited the recent interest in Jamaican roots reggae and Soul Pirate can today be regarded as a modern classic.
