The Heptones and Their Friends 'Meet The Now Generation' LP
Limited orange vinyl reissue, officially licensed from Trojan.
Primarily released to showcase the sublime talents of one of Jamaica’s most celebrated vocal trios, The Heptones, the aptly titled Heptones & Their Friends album features a selection of superior reggae sides by the group alongside hugely popular works from the three of reggae’s biggest stars of the period: Judy Mowatt, Nicky Thomas and Peter Tosh of The Wailers.
Backed by top session crew, the Now Generation, the Joe Gibbsproduced selection is of a predictably high standard throughout, with highlights including “Be The One”, a pitch-perfect slice of classic roots; a gloriously cheesy pop cover of the Drfters’ “Save The Last Dance”; the strident “Freedom To The People” and one of the biggest Jamaican hits of the early 1970s, “Hypocrite”.
