June 2009 - This album contains eight more
than superb titles from this relatively
unknown Jamaican vocal harmony group.
And that's not all: they all come with a
more than outstanding DUB counterpart, in an
all-killer-no-filler kind of quality.
"Africa Shall Stretch Forth Her
Hands": Highly Recommended!
Noel "Bunny" Brown was already a
veteran in the late 1970's, when the tunes
on this album were released. He had been
recording since the early 1960's, and had
released a tune called "Bachelor
Boy" under the name of "Noel and
the Wild Cats".
He founded The Mighty Three's (aka Mighty
3) with Carlton Gregory and Bernard Brown,
of which we find the main work on this
album. It's a superb album in every aspect
you can think of: the production, the music,
the mixing, the singing.
The Mighty Three's have a way of touching
you straight in the heart with Rasta chants,
psalms, and meditations. From the opening
vocal to the last dub, this album will keep
you in a good vibe all the way.
It's just too bad, that there is so
little material of this wonderful vocal
harmony group. In that sense, they're like
the Abyssinians who too were known for their
heartfelt spiritual vocal works. Perhaps it
has to be like that....
Nevertheless, there really is nothing bad
to say about this album, other than the
choice of sequence. Now you have to program
the CD player before you can listen to the
vocal and the dub of every title rather than
first all the vocal tracks and then all the
