  • Attaras - Brimstone & Fire / Cool Fire Version
Overall rating : (1 to 5 stars)   
Attaras' "Brimstone & Fire" is another worthwhile single that comes from Pressure Sounds' ongoing heavyweight seven inch vinyl release programme. We're not sure, but most likely this is the first time this very rare Attaras tune, a Joe Higgs production on the 'Elevation' label, has been re-issued. "Brimstone & Fire" is a beautiful early reggae tune, actually typical country style roots which we also know from groups like Justin Hinds & The Dominoes. Attaras, The Classics, Pipe & The Pipers, and The Renegades were incarnations of the Wailing Souls before they did their first recording for Lloyd 'The Matador' Daley and then Coxsone Dodd, Henry 'Junjo' Lawes and linval Thompson. On "Brimstone & Fire" Winston 'Pipe' Matthews and Lloyd 'Bread' McDonald are joined by Joe Higgs on harmonies, one of the reasons why this is a true gem. On the flipside there's a real nice low-key Tubby's style version with vocals floating in and out the mix.
