Zion Train: Original Sounds of the Zion

Öffnen Sie iTunes, um Hörproben zu wählen und Musik zu kaufen und zu laden.


For decades, England has played host to a reggae scene second only to Jamaica's in terms of its richness and quality of output. But until the reggae/dance collective Zion Train relocated there from Tottenham, it's probably safe to say that West Wales was not generally considered a significant center for reggae music. If the group's albums since the move are any indication, that may soon change.

Note in particular the fine horn arrangements on "King of the Sounds and Blues" and the crisp, delicate rhythmic filigrees on "Beautiful Children." Recommended.

For their next effort, Zion Train...
