Release Date:04/01/2016;Notes:Includes the original version of "Dance With Me" (sampled in Kanye West's Grammy nominated single "All Day"). New edition to celebrate 10 years since our first reissue. Restored original album artwork and expanded to a Stoughton gatefold "tip-on" jacket. Includes updated liner notes and archive photos. Noel Ellis features six dub-loved, heavy yet ethereal tracks, with contributions from OG reggae maestros Jackie Mittoo, Willi Williams, and Johnny Osbourne. The eponymous classic lost full-length includes the hugely influential "Rocking Universally", whose rhythmic influence was Willi Williams' "Armagideon Time" (covered by The Clash). The poignantly autobiographical "Memories" (about Noel's upbringing in Jamaica) is a highpoint as well. "Stop Your Fighting" was a universal anti-materialism/war plea that we should still heed today, while "Marcus Garvey" was delivered in Noel's playful style, despite a solemn rallying cry of "Africa it must be free..." Noel Ellis evoked a transcendent majesty, and the album's economical performances were a blessing compared to certain overproduced recordings of the era. Tasteful keys, varied percussion, essential echo, conquering dub changeovers, and Noel's impeccable mic control gave an otherworldly twist to Summer's remarkable drum and bass sound. It was an end-to-end burner for midnight tokers and cool rulers alike.;Track List:1. To Hail Salassie;2. Stop Your Fighting;3. Rocking Universally;4. Marcus Garvey;5. Dance with Me;6. Memories;Special Attributes:GATEFOLD LP JACKET
