Description

More than thirty years after the fabulous " Heart of the Congos ", classified among ten better albums reggae of every time, The Congos, Cedric Myton, Ashanti Roy and Watty Burnett, find again Lee " Scratch " Perry in Jamaica to record their last album very exactly named " Back in
the Black Ark ".

Time had come to come back to studio and of put a new stone in the history of the reggae. " Back in the Black Ark " begin with the recording of a cover, Sam Cooke's " Chain Gang ", song speaking about the suffering of prisoners used as slaves, story of the most poignant for Jamaican.

Thirteen other titles of the album also have each their anecdote, but certainly the ones where Lee Perry put his voice which really represent the atmosphere which reigned in the studio during the sessions, "Spider Woman" and "Garden of Life", because they almost consisted there live and played directly by the musicians. That's Jamaica!

BACK IN THE BLACK ARK POUR LA PREMIERE DISPONIBLE EN VINYLE

Plus de trente ans après le fabuleux Heart of the Congos, classé parmi les dix meilleurs albums reggae de tous les temps, THE CONGOS : Cedric Myton, Ashanti Roy et Watty Burnett, retrouvent « Lee Scratch Perry » en Jamaïque pour enregistrer leur dernier album nommé Back in the Black Ark, sorti en CD en 2010.

Le temps était venu de revenir en studio et de poser une nouvelle pierre à l’édifice de l’histoire du reggae. Back in the Black Ark commence par l’enregistrement d’une reprise de « Chain Gang » de Sam Cooke, une chanson qui parle de la souffrance des prisonniers esclaves, une des histoires les plus poignantes pour la Jamaïque. Les treize autres titres de l’album ont aussi leur anecdote, notamment ceux sur lesquels Lee Perry a posé sa voix, « Spider Woman » et « Garden of Life », qui représentent vraiment l’atmosphère qui régnait dans le studio pendant les sessions parce qu'enregistrés et joués en direct. C’est la Jamaïque !
