Singerman! is an excellent 18-track sampler that collects the works of some of the finest vocalists of the roots era. As the ‘70s dawned and the languid beat of rocksteady gave way to reggae's more clipped, militant rhythms, singers began to turn their attention from romantic concerns toward issues of political consciousness, Rastafarianism, and racial identity. These themes suffuse these recordings and give listeners a visceral sense of the strife-torn social and political landscape of mid-‘70s Jamaica. The set opens with Max Romeo’s prophetic “Fire de the Vatican,” an indignant re-voicing of “Sipple Out Deh” that the singer had recorded with Lee Perry during sessions for the epochal War in a Babylon LP. A veritable rush of roots masterpieces follow on its heels, including Horace Andy’s brooding meditation on social ills “Problems" and The Congos’ ecstatic, Lee Perry–produced celebration tune “At the Feast.” The inclusion of more obscure selections such as Sylford Walker’s belligerent “Chant Down Babylon” and Willi Williams’ “Give Jah Praise” make this set an instructive listen for anyone with an interest in this remarkable period of Jamaican music.
Attention Rockers!! Singerman is an axcellent variety REGGAE compilation. I recomend this album for any reggae lover. ONE LOVE!
