                  Beres HammondSoul ReggaeHarmony House

                  There's a reason this album is called Soul Reggae instead of "Reggae Soul." Soul gets top billing because the emphasis is on seductive crooning and beautifully orchestrated '70s R&B, with occasional reggae sprinkled throughout. Gifted vocalist Beres Hammond establishes himself as one of the most soulful Jamaicans this side of Toots Hibbert, yet where Hibbert evokes the gritty style of Otis Redding, Hammond is more reminiscent of the languid yearning of Marvin Gaye and the Isley Brothers.

                  His counterpart on Soul Reggae, guitarist/producer/arranger Willie Lindo, crafts several impressive faux-Philly soul backdrops worthy of the O'Jays (such as the excellent "Don't Wait Too Long") and provides the perfect settings for Hammond's romantic ballads.

                      Impossibly rare LP previously issued once in 1958 as part of Miecio Askanasy’s 1950s touring “Braziliana” show! Notoriety for the LP heightened once Gilles Peterson announced that it was on his most wanted list - OG copies tipping the £1000 + mark amongst collectors This amazing LP features the origins of Mas-Que-Nada!

                      The original music was written and produced with José Prates and as an album it stands out as a keystone in the development of the Brazilian sound that was to explode around the world in the decade to follow. Excellent reissue work, Trunk Records!
