This is one of my favorite reggae albums, one of my favorite live albums, and just one of my favorite albums. The album opens with an intro, a man pumping up the Parisian audience for Blondy's appearance on stage; this is followed by a musical intro and then Blondy himself. The tracks blend together well, and the overall flow of the album really makes me feel as if I was there or had seen the show. The music is amazing, full of spirit and energy, sometimes fast, at times more subdued, perhaps imparting a feeling of reverence. The bass is strong, as well as the horns--sax, trumpet, and great trombone. Blondy's lyrics are equally captivating and inspiring; he sings here in several languages, primarily French and English. The theme is predominantly spiritual, and has influences from Christianity (as in Come Back Jesus), as well as Islam, Judaism, and others. I really admire his message of transcending "religious" differences to unite in spirituality. Check it out...
I'm a huge reggae fan with ALOT of reggae albums and through the years this album has always stayed in heavy rotation. Although most of the lyrics are in French the music really speaks for itself. There are few reggae albums I would consider in the category of this album (Right up there with Babylon by Bus). The sound mix is amazing. I wish all live albums could sound this good. The bass player alone makes this album worth purchasing but there is also great percussion, organ and brass instrumentation that make this album great. If you like good reggae music, played and jammed to perfection then you NEED this album in your headphones.
PS. This is the album above all albums to have if you like to listen to reggae while you ski. Hands Down!
