Culture – Vital Selection,Virgin 1981

Culture, front

This band delivered a steady reggae sound from the mid seventies
throughout the eighties. Joseph Hill was the group’s leader and songwriter,
he died in the saddle, being on a European tour. He got ill very suddenly
and died the next morning on august 19, 2006, only 57 years old.
This is an album from 1981 on ‘virgin’ records, I am posting this one
especially for the people who were in the park with me last saturday.
We had us a sunny afternoon with irie rub-a-dub, rocksteady reggae
and other global grooves. Behold poor Jah people, stop the fussing and
fighting, work on natty and never get weary,
smoke up the international herb.

tracks;

1 Behold
2 Poor Jah people
3 Stop the fussing and fighting
4 Work on natty
5 Never get weary
6 Citizen as a peaceful dub
7 Iron sharpening iron
8 The international herb
9 Too long in slavery
10 The shepherd
11 Holy mount Zion

  1. I did see Culture twice during the 1980’s, especially the first concert was very good, it took place in a small club in Rotterdam. The sound was absolutely perfect, not only did they have the musicians with them who played on their albums but the sound enginer was none other than Errol Brown.

    A funny thing happened during the concert. At one moment Joseph Hill took off his cap and shook his dreadlocks out of which flew a small packet of weed into the public. Joseph immediately stopped singing and said: “Stop, stop stop”. He asked for the packet of weed to be returned to him otherwise the concert would end. Luckily for all of us the packet was terurned to him.
