Live at Reggae Sunsplash is Big Youth at his very best. The Psalms intros for I Pray Thee and Ten Against One are crucial and lay the roots foundation for the entire album. This is one of the best live reggae recordings and Big Youth does not disappoint, as each song is a hit from Satta Amasagana to Hit The Road Jack. Big Youth: If you spit in the Sky, it falls in your Eye and If you ride like Lightening, you crash like Thunder.
Peerless songs, breathtaking musicianship and, 40 years on, still box fresh. Jamaica’s failing economy in the ’70s meant recycling was a part of every day life, so it followed that, with studio time and recording tape expensive, producers like Lee Perry and King Tubby began taking old backing tracks and remixing them into sonically crackpot but undeniably brilliant ‘dubs’.
The Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album is an award presented at the Grammy Awards, a ceremony that was established in 1985 and originally called the Gramophone Awards, to recording artists for quality works in the reggae music genre.
