Heart of the Congos, by The Congos

Roots Reggae, Dub — 1977

For thirty pieces of silver, They sold Jah Rasta! Heart of the Congos is the first album by The Congos and produced by Lee Scratch Perry. The album is considered as one of the finest roots reggae of all time. This album sounds very flat and lazy, but high in vibrations. For me, the best parts of the album are the vocals, the sudden drum rumbling, cymbal breaks, flat bass and the African elements. If you are a reggae beginner this is a good album. So don’t miss the shanti.
