Album Review

No other American band has shown as much dedication to preserving the spirit of 1970s roots reggae as the mysterious 10 Ft. Ganja Plant, a group that deliberately keeps its lineup shrouded in a cloud of pungent smoke (though it's an open secret that the band shares several members in common with the Ithaca, NY-based roots collective John Brown's Body). 10 Ft. Ganja Plant's third album finds the band doing the same thing it did, to glorious effect, on its first two: channeling the rich, dark spirit of the great reggae studios of the 1970s, in particular Channel One and Lee "Scratch" Perry's infamous Black Ark, where the wet and echoey ambience that 10 Ft. Ganja Plant favors was perfected. The band leans toward instrumentals with lots of dubwise production effects, but the strongest facets on Midnight Landing are the songs — in particular, the joyful "Let the Music Hit," and the resolutely skanking "Mercy." Whoever the vocalist is, he has an interesting voice that lands somewhere between Bob Marley and Leo Graham, and whoever the bass player is (ten bucks says it's David Gould), he lays down sweet, heavyweight basslines that will wind your waist and soothe your soul. Very highly recommended.

Roots Returns

Gone are the days of classic roots rock reggae artists...Think again! Peter and Bob themselves would rejoice to the sweet sounds of 10 Ft. Ganja Plant. Together with John Brown's Body they have created masterful tracks like Mercy, Let the Music Hit and Deliver us Jah...Must have songs for those who still appreciate the classic roots sound. Mercy is the best 99 cents I've ever spent on music.

is this from the 70s?

i know it says released in 2003, but this sounds like the old roots and dub reggae from the 70s......this is a must have for any reggae fan

Incredible!

This album is amazing, you'll be hard pressed to find such good quality reggae dub dropped in the last couple decades. 'Kneel at the Feet' is a wonderful fusion of jazz and reggae - perfect, highly recommended

Biography

Genre: Reggae

Years Active: '00s

Hailing from upstate New York, surely one of the more unlikely locales for an authentic reggae act, 10 Ft. Ganja Plant are a mysterious roots and dub collective and splinter group of the better-known Ithaca, NY-based eight-piece John Brown's Body. Known for impromptu — rarely announced or promoted — live shows that incorporate a loose, improvisatory jam band feel, the group garnered some renown in the Northeast U.S. live music circuit throughout the 2000s. 10 Ft. Ganja Plant debuted in...
