UB40 had some of the biggest hits of the 80s, incorporating reggae within the world of pop to the same extent as Sting did in the 80s, with hits like © ‘Red Red Wine’, ‘(I Can’t Help) Falling in Love With You’ and ‘I Got You Babe’. The Birmingham group eventually split in 2008, leading to the formation of two rival bands. Robin Campbell and Earl Falconer formed the 'official' UB40 while Terence “Astro” Wilson and Ali Campbell continued under the alias 'UB40 featuring…'. Over those forty years, both bands have suffered their fair share of loss, in particular, the death of Astro in November 2021 which marked a turning point for the English musicians. Thankfully, the singer did have time to leave his mark on their latest album, Unprecedented, which contains around a dozen cover songs - UB40’s speciality.


The album kicks off with the poignant 'What Have I Done?' By The Frightnrs, a brilliant New York reggae band signed to Daptone Records. Following that, a rocksteady interpretation of Johnny Cash’s 'Sunday Morning Coming Down' featuring Jamaican studio legends Robbie Lyn (keyboard) and Sly Dunbar (drums), who are also behind the arrangement of boy band East 17’s 'Stay Another Day'. This slight detour quickly gets back on track with a beautiful version of 'Sufferer' by Derrick Harriott’s Kingstonians and the uber-cool Heaven in Her Eyes, a cover by Gappy Ranks on the riddim of Marley’s Soul Rebel.


Louisa Mark’s 'Caught You in a Lie', a lovers’ rock hit produced by Lloyd Coxsone (owner of English sound system Sir Coxsone—not to be confused with Studio One’s Coxsone Dodd) and released in 1975, is a great track, as is the smooth version of Stevie Wonder’s 1971 Motown funk hit 'Do Yourself a Favor'. The album is proof that UB40 could surely turn anything into pop music. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit.

Bob Marley’s Unfinished Trilogy

It was precisely 40 years ago that Bob Marley released his final album, Uprising, the climax to his political trilogy (with Survival and Confrontation) that was left unfinished after Marley was taken by cancer in 1981. Let us look back at this Jamaican prophet’s shift towards militarism during his last three years on Earth.
