Superb

Superb record, spiritual, mystical and deeply moving, probably one of the more “African” LPs (or trinity of LPs, to be precise) that have come out of Jamaica. As James Carnegie writes in the liner notes of the original 1970s release, “these recordings and this group, represent a summary of much that is vital in Jamaican music of the last fifteen years (early 60s to mid 70s) while in many respects it is not really typical of that music”. It’s not only Count Ossie playing here. It’s also Cedric Brooks playing beside him, and the latter’s Light of Saba - One Truth sound also comes to mind as a reference point in terms of aura and style when you hear Ossie’s Grounation. The repress is top Japanese quality. It all looks, feels and sounds the way it should. This is a record to behold. In the words of the Mystics themselves, what’s recorded here was a great emotionally charged, meaningful experience.
