Muze PNote Playing reggae and supporting the UK Labour Party during a decade of Thatcherism and racism demonstrated that these chaps had morals and guts. They eventually prospered (good ultimately conquers bad) and they can now look back and taste their achievement. In the UK, UB40 have done as much to popularize reggae as Bob Marley did for the rest of the world. This is their most refined album and contains some of their major hits. They make a point in the sleeve-notes of informing the listener that all these songs had been recorded by Jamaican artists. No apology is needed - their 'Cherry Oh Baby' and 'Red Red Wine' have become classics for this band. Much respect, irie.

Producer: Ray "Pablo" Falconer; UB40

Engineer: Howard Gray

Artist Overview

Rising to prominence in the '80s, reggae ambassadors UB40 were not only the first British reggae band to achieve mainstream pop crossover success, but essentially the only reggae artists after the Wailers to break through to worldwide audiences in a major way. Though their later work was softened a bit with pop production, they always paid homage to their roots; their seminal album Labour of Love is strictly covers of reggae classics, whose original performers they'd later collaborate with on new recordings.
