COUNT OSSIE / THE RASTA FAMILY - MAN FROM HIGHER HEIGHTS (LP)


"Soul Jazz Records are releasing Count Ossie & The Rasta Family's long lost reggae album 'Man From Higher Heights' (originally released in 1983), digitally remastered and with full original artwork. This release follows on from the earlier release of Count Ossie and The Mystic Revelation of Rastafari 'Tales of Mozambique' (1975), also by Soul Jazz Records. Recorded in Kingston, Jamaica, it remains unclear whether this album is a mixture of original recordings overlayed with additional players, or Ossie's post-Mystic Revelation players remaining true to the spirit of Count Ossie (who had died in a car crash in 1976). Either way, it is a fascinating and successful blend of heavyweight Rastafarian roots rhythms and drumming alongside deep jazz improvisation and tripped out psychedelic fuzz guitar."
