It was 1992 when the world first heard about off-spring, ready to take up the mantle their father wore as music-maker, songwriter and Rastafarian. That they would be called Morgan Heritage, sing reggae music and play instruments, signaled a new dawn for the genre. At the time, the children were taking on the great stages of Jamaica. The biggest concert of the time, Reggae Sunsplash, would prove to be the launch-pad for the band's relationship with the hottest record label of the time, MCA Records. The label took notice of the newest, emerging icons of the music industry. The siblings were just completing high school. Gramps was offered a scholarship to play football for the Miami Hurricanes. Una contemplated a career in law. But with the offer of a record deal at a major label, she decided to join her brothers Peter, Mr. Mojo, Lukes and Gramps for a consensus to sign. The label added Morgan Heritage to its roster which included New Edition, Guy, The Jets, and chart-toppers such as Patti LaBelle, Gladys Knight, and Jody Watley. But this was a Heritage with a purpose. This Heritage had a mission. And as impressive as the acclaimed label was, there was no compatibility with the family, reggae music or Morgan Heritage.

After the release of the album "Miracles", Morgan Heritage parted company with the MCA, but the message was already spreading. The reggae community had unanimously dubbed the group "the royal family of reggae". With excellent albums like "One Calling", "Protect Us Jah", "Don't Haffi Dread" and "More Teachings..." they delivered serious contributions to contemporary roots music. With the instantly recognisable and accessible Morgan "roots" sound they have managed to reach a wide audience. By now Morgan has become a familiar name to many reggae music fans, not only for the songs of Morgan Heritage, but also for L.M.S. and their father Denroy Morgan for his years and many successes in the music business.

This live performance album recorded at the Paradiso in Amsterdam mainly contains favorites from the group's most recent albums "Three In One" and "Full Circle". The Morgan family has established a strong international following via their ceaseless touring schedule and succession of original hit songs. This group delivers on stage and this album captures one of their best performances from 2005. The album/concert kicks off with the uptempo song Inna Dem Thing Deh on the "Superior" riddim, which immediatly brings a great vibe in the concert, flowing over in Live Up. The song Liberation is a true classic tune and a public favourite, same as Hail Rastafari, I'm Still The Same and Nice Up U Medi. More niceness brings Tell Me How Come on the "Seasons" Riddim. Furthermore Morgan Heritage excels on So Much To Come and Falling Race.

All I can say is "Yes Rasta"!
