MICHAEL PROPHET - REGGAE MUSIC ALLRIGHT
There are several Reggae Vocalists whose voices are going strong, decade after decade. Many of these artists will never be recognized by the established Music Industry, for the simple reason that they're just... too good.

But you can't keep a good man down, so they say.

And so, when you listen to the album "ROOTSMAN", which he voiced in Mad Professor's Ariwa studio, or when you listen to REGGAE MUSIC ALLRIGHT, you will find that Michael Prophet surely deserves a place in that list. 

Michael Prophet is "discovered" by none other then Yabby You, the original Jesus Dread who also produced Michael Rose in his early years. 

This is truly a remarkable singer!

And REGGAE MUSIC ALLRIGHT is truly a remarkable album as well.

The album contains ten outstanding tracks. Outstanding, because of the performance as well as production. The music is played Rub a Dub style, and recorded in the early 1980's. Deep bass, nuff DUB effects, Michael Prophet's voice. Everything goes so well together that you can say this album is recommended not only because of Michael Prophet's superb singing, but also because of the musical experience.

It can also be said, that REGGAE MUSIC ALLRIGHT is a school example of high quality Rub a Dub.

Rub a Dub is nothing less then early Dancehall style. Many will now recognize Dancehall as that cocaine-inspired fusion of Hip Hop and something remotely resembling something "Reggae-ish", but Rub a Dub is none of that. Rub a Dub is a form of pure Reggae, and it's often played by a full (studio) band. 

REGGAE MUSIC ALLRIGHT contains beautifull horn themes, catchy guitar play, and a supertight drum and bass.

The engineer, the man behind the mixing table, also plays a crucial role when it comes to producing a good Rub a Dub album. A good Rub a Dub album will often come with some subtle DUB mixing. An echo here, some stricktly drum and bass there. You guessed it: this is skillfully done on REGGAE MUSIC ALLRIGHT.

Indeed, REGGAE MUSIC ALLRIGHT. More then allright! This one is crucial, because of Michael Prophet's skillfull and superb singing and because of the outstanding production and performance. A must for every serious collector of crucial Reggae Music.
