Cool Rasta is essentially an updated DVD audio version of the Heptones' 1973 Book of Rules album, with the smooth and spooky "Cool Rasta" and "Dreadlock" added, along with a handful of rare dub mixes, all done in stellar 5.1 surround sound. The original sessions were produced by Harry Johnson (Harry J), and although some of these tracks now seem a little flat and uninspired, "Cool Rasta" and "Book of Rules," in particular, are standouts, ranking easily among the best numbers the Heptones ever recorded. There are two dub mixes of "Rules" included here (one is titled "Ganja"), and it is interesting to see the subtle changes that happen in these versions. The additional tracks fit remarkably well with the original cuts, making an interesting album even more so.

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.
