Prince Far I - Under Heavy Manners LP
Label: 17 North Parade
During the latter half of the seventies very few came close to emulating the success of the productions of Joe Gibbs and Errol Thompson. "The Mighty Two" took the greatest of Kingston's musical and technical innovations and transformed the cutting edge into a commercial proposition that crossed over the rest of the world. Under Heavy Manners was an essential purchase as well as a defining statement on the somber mood of the times in the year that Two Sevens Clash and forty years after its original release, the raw reality of Under Heavy Manner continue to hit home.
