"Unite...Africa Unite...! For more than 20 years, the band from Turin-Pinerola, Italy, has been cooking up a storm. Founded in 1981, the year of Bob Marley's death, the band named itself after one of the master's great songs. Since then, they have released more than 10 albums and in October their first DVD hit the market. Echo Beach is honoured to be able to bring to fans all around the world a very special dub album, which until now has been available only in a limited vinyl-only edition in Italy. The album is bursting with highlights, including an outstanding dub version by Mad Professor, dubbed at London's Ariwa Studio, and three brilliant Bob Marley cover versions: 'Is It Love', 'Crazy Baldheads' and 'Rebel Music'. The 8-man band reveal their true class in these cover versions. A strong roots foundation drives this whole project forward -- minimalist hints of electronic tricks and highlights are cunningly used here and there to great effect. Africa Unite are a highly experienced, fantastically tight live band -- as is demonstrated by two irresistible live tracks. One of the classiest, most attractive albums ever released by Echo Beach."
