  • Mighty Three's - Sata / Rasta Business
Overall rating : (1 to 5 stars)   
Following the 2003 release of the Mighty Three's compilation "Africa Shall Stretch Forth Her Hand", French label Makasound has reissued the "Sata/Rasta Business" 12" vinyl that originally appeared on April Records in 1978. In 2004 there was already a 12" release on the Education label, but it certainly wasn't the 1978 original as the vocal & dub tracks were taken from the album and put together on record. "Sata" and especially the killer "Rasta Business", both prime examples of late-1970s steppers reggae, are excellent efforts by this less known and largely underrated vocal group that consisted of Bernard Brown, Noel "Bunny" Brown and Carlton Gregory. The extended versions of these two tunes are literally flowing and sparkling with echoes, a driving beat and truly great vocals. The pressing of this 12" reissue is limited to 500 copies, so don't hesitate and make sure you purchase it while you can.
