I was listening to the bob marley yvette bedroom's tapes yesterday, particularly the wonderful "God of all ages" and I thought it would be good to have a thread about the most crucial acoustic reggae from the 70'.

Other great tunes :

- Joe Higgs "there's a reward"

- B. Spear " Jah no dead"

- Abyssinians "Satta" in the roots rock reggae documentary

- McAnuff "sun is setting in the sea"

I'm sure there are loads of others but I just can't remind them now.

Now give yours

Bless

there was also this unknown Hugh Mundell track (we got a link on youtube here in the RA) called 'Clean up your heart' I think, very beautiful.

There was an all-acoustic Mighty Diamonds album recently: 'Inna De Yard' on Makasound. Very good, I think.

[Edit: Sorry, didn't see the "from the '70s" bit!]

right, the topic was concerning the seventies cause this inna de yard collection is really nice but it's famous and easy to get and it sounds different from the 70' releases.

I was thinking about another nice one:

bob marley and the sons of jah - acoustic sessions (actually most of the songs are sung by the sons of jah)

there was an all-acoustic Peter Tosh compilation that came out around 2001. it had vocal tracks between each song kind of like Marley's Talkin' Blues. all of the songs are great -- just Peter Tosh and his guitar. i enjoy this album a lot, but man, i haven't listened to it in a long time.

Audley Rollens fantastic »Goodie Goodie« from the above album is one I really recommend.

The opening track on Rockers is wicked; my memory isn't serving me well right now, but i think it's "Satta" as well.

i'll clearly check the audley rollens tune.

I also have that clinton cd, it's pretty nice but a bit too 'clean' for an acoustic session, it misses a little soul IMO.

Fearon's album is not from the 70's.

There is Ijahman - Jah heavy load, the video is on Youtube, it's really great !

theres a youtube video of mighty diamonds recording in the studio, long time tune

jack ruby auditions were avalaible too in youtube, but now only rests one (great tune of mickie simpson - dont cry)

The Key Of Life (Acapella) from Fred Locks is very nice too, but not exactly acoustic

there's a no 70's group called Jahcoustic, and they sound really good!!

might be '80s but is Bim Sherman's Miracle on On-Sound worth picking up?

I have it and do like it a lot, but I think it might be an acquired taste. If you can imagine his gorgeous voice backed with strings and tablas and that appeals, buy it. :)

Pretty sure a lot of people on RA would hate it! :D

Incidentally, it was in Mojo Magazine's Top 10 On-Sound albums.

I'll try and have a listen over the weekend to give a more accurate description. I must admit my focus has always been on his voice and the sound of the tablas.

It has an Indian feel so the strings aren't classical strings.

Not selling this album very well, am I!? :)

appreciated if you get the chance 6 - the CD's in a local source but no way to hear it. (problem strings are the high violins in pop and easy listening, so this might be fine. seems like the album is another ON-U experiment in a new direction.)
