    A fairly obscure figure even by reggae standards, Prince Far I was one of the sternest of the "cultural" DJs that proliferated on the Jamaican scene in the late '70s; he rarely toasted (or, as he preferred, "chanted") about the joys of dancing or romantic love; his message was always focused on matters spiritual and political. This didn't mean he couldn't be whimsical at times: He once used his musical pulpit make fun of neo-Nazis for the clothes they wore and sometimes (as on this album's title track) lectured the youth on matters of etiquette, and he once recorded an entire album of Old Testament psalms. Under Heavy Manners, which he recorded for the great producer Joe Gibbs, is one of his finest albums, but until the Rocky One label was revived in the late '90s as Joe Gibbs Music, it was almost impossible to find. Now it's back, and the original ten-track program is augmented by several new songs with their dub versions. It's a bonanza for Prince Far I fans; one of the bonus tracks is a dub version of the title song, and other highlights include the very dread "Young Generation" ("Let us stand in formation and let us build up foundation/For the young generation") and "Show Me Mine Enemy."

    CD has 13 extra tracks
