Row, Fisherman, Row


...which is here- Fisherman, lead track from Heart Of The Congos by The Congos. Utterly sublime vocal reggae from the golden tonsils of Cedric Myton and Roy 'Ashanti' Johnson. This is from a 1996 Blood And Fire re-issue which included a second disc including a 12" mix of Congoman which I may get round to at some point. Looking at the tracklist it's difficult to know where to begin with so many standouts- The Wrong Thing, Ark Of The Covenant, La La Bam Bam, Congoman. If you haven't got this album, go get it and fill a hole in your life/record collection.
