Remake of the original tune Voice Of The Poor released by the Black Redemption label from New York.


Black Redemption

Ras Kush’s Black Redemption roots reggae label strikes hard with the release of a remake of the classic Voice of The Poor by Jamaican roots singer Fred Locks. Originally produced by veteran Londonian soundman Lloyd Coxsone, the song was released on Fred Locks and The Creation Steppers’ album Love And Only Love out in 1982.

The new 10 features Fred Locks 2008 recut followed by two tough dub cuts (a horn version and the dub). Side B has a totally different style. With his one time band F.Y.A.H, Jamaican singer P’Tah Kruud delivers a positive tune (Universal Love) over a hardcore steppa riddim with electric guitar, followed by two dubs that make think of King Earthquake’s productions. Out now.
