The Jolly Brothers "Concious Man" 1977




I don't know the story behind this album, but it was recorded at Black Ark Studios, and produced/enginered by Lee Perry in 1977, the Black Ark Players are the backing band, and what I know The Jolly Brothers released only a 12inch of the title version in 1979. Why the rest of the album was unreleased until 1993 I don't have a clue about. The recordings are very Lee Perryish and are in many ways similar to the warm and gentle LP Heart Of The Congos from the same period. The music on this album is some of the best roots reggae/dub/harmony vocals from the jamaican 70s. A true gem. Groovy!

Enjoy!
