Third World - Journey To AddisVendor: Island Records
RARE/2HAND VINYL LP ON ISLAND 1978.
Island ILPS 9554 made in UK. Vinyl NM. Cover EX.
Probably the first and best fusion of reggae and soul music by a reggae group. Third World was looking to sell records worldwide and not just in Jamaica and England, and while the band's fusion of these genres may have infuriated the die-hard Rasta man, it helped the music reach a larger base. After the opening "One Cold Vibe," a melodic reggae bouncer, a tepid "Cold Sweat" (not the James Brown tune) has floating rhythms that soften the harsh lyrics. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Third_World_%28band%29
