PRINCE ALLA - ONLY LOVE CAN CONQUER (1976 - 1979)
Prince Alla is Keith Blake. He was born in 1950, in Kingston. At an early age, he joined a vocal group called "The Leaders" and went on to live in Prince Edward Emmanuel's Rasta Camp, where he stayed about six years. 

Quite a background already. 

After living at the Bull Bay camp, he went on and started to record for a number of producers, among who Tappa Zukie is quite noteworthy. 

The time was around 1976. And it is from this period, that the tracks on Only Love Can Conquer were produced. 14 tracks, of which several come in Discomix style: that is the vocal track and the dub track in one long mix. 

The vocals were recorded at King Tubby's studio, where the King himself along with Scientist made sure that everything sounded right. 

And it sure sounds right! It's clear, that there's something more going on than just a little fine tuning on the mixing table. Everything is lively: the music, the vocals and the mixing too.

This is the kind of Roots Rockers Reggae that will definitely last for decades and decades.  And in fact, it already has, hasn't it?

In case you wondered, unfortunately not all the tracks come with their DUB version. But there are some outstanding DUBS on the Blood and Fire release FREEDOM SOUNDS IN DUB, so you might just want to check out that one, too.
