Prince Of Peace

Tribute to Prince Far I

A few days ago The Swede posted on his marvellous series Red Gold & Green a song by Prince Far I and I have to admit that I didn't posted anything from him so far. Not that I don't like his music (he was always on my list) but somehow something else come to my mind and forgot to give him a chance to appear on this site. When I first got in contact with reggae and Rastafarian culture with the soundtrack of The Harder They Come it didn't take a long time when I explored Prince Far I. From the first time I listened to his gruff voice I was hooked by him. He was also a political person known for his critical assessment of the Jamaican government. Here are some songs from a Peel session back in 1978.

The Swede hat gesagt…

It's great to see so much reggae turning up around our corner of the internet just lately, TheRobster's Reggae Wednesday series is a well crucial example. Prince Far I? You can never have too much Prince Far I in your life. Superb selections Walter.
