Travellers – Black Black Minds

Origine du Groupe : Jamaica

Style : Reggae

Sortie : 1977

BLACK BLACK MINDS: While this isn’t exactly the gold nugget suggested by producer King Jammy’s (who presumably came across these tapes while spring cleaning), The Travellers’ one and only long
player is the sort of roots reggae that you just don’t hear anymore. There’s no need for any gimmicks – though the original release is augmented in the usual Pressure Sounds style with DJ cuts
and dub versions. Okay, so The Travellers’ might not have been the most versatile vocal group of their time, and their harmonies are sometimes stretched a little thin, and no, there’s nothing
particularly innovative about the songwriting or the fairly standard roots rhythms, but there’s definitely an element of quintessential reggae goodness at the heart of BLACK BLACK MINDS, and it’s
this that really recommends The Travellers’ record for re-release. It’s the middle of winter here, right now, but I have a feeling that this one is going to sound very nice in the yard when
summer moves in.
