Aswad: Conquering Lions Of The Concrete Jungle

Barney Hoskyns, New Musical Express, 28 January 1984

IF REGGAE is dying, how curious that my interest in it is just coming to life. Years of comparative indifference (and ignorance) pass and suddenly I'm playing Isaacs and Wailer and Spear and Wailing Souls: Soon Forward, Rock 'n' Groove, Social Living, Wild Suspense. I can't stop it.
