Black Uhuru - Red mp3 album

Red is a 1981 album by the Jamaican reggae band Black Uhuru. The line-up of the band changed many times during its 16 years and this is the second release for the lineup of Michael Rose, Sandra "Puma" Jones and Derek "Duckie" Simpson. Sly & Robbie were again in the production seat after having previously worked with the band on the 1980 album Sinsemilla. All tracks written by Michael Rose unless stated. Michael Rose - vocals. Derrick "Duckie" Simpson - harmony vocals. Puma Jones - harmony vocals.

By 1979 the 'classic' line up of Black Uhuru was ready to conquer the world. Derek "Duckie" Simpson and Michael Rose, who had been together with Errol Nelson since 1977 now formed a partnership with American social worker, Sandra "Puma" Jones. It was her sweet vocal addition to the heady mix that was to prove the turning point. In the early '80s if you wanted both critical and popular approval in the the dancehalls, there was only one rhythm team you needed to call to get your skank on: Sly and Robbie.

Back sleeve has (P)1979 but centre discs have (P)1980. Are these actually the same record? Reply See 2 replies Notify me Helpful.

Uhuru means 'freedom' in Swahili. Black Uhuru's breakthrough came in 1980 with the brilliant 'Sinsemilla', which features Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare as the rhythm section and the album's producers. In 1981 Black Uhuru released Red, for many their best album, and the following year, Chill Out – both albums again produced by Sly & Robbie.
