Steel An' Skin - Reggae Is Here Once Again (LP)
Steel an' Skin, a unit composed of young nightclub musicians born in Ghana, Nigeria, St. Kitts, Trinidad and the U.K., who once performed with Ginger Johnson's Afrikan Drummers, a highlife band under the tutelage of the late Ginger Johnson and played at Johnson's Iroko Country Club in Hampstead, London. Steel an' Skin began activities giving concerts and workshops in London schools, expanding nationwide to schools, prisons, psychiatric hospitals and summer festivals, including the world-famous Notting Hill Carnival. The group combined an admirably brave, open and unironic mix of musical forms with community outreach, non-cynical and untainted by preachiness or "social work." Good feelings from good hearts.
This LP version consists of Steel an' Skin's 1979 debut 12" single "Reggae Is Here Once Again", featuring "Afro Punk Reggae (Dub)", a fine disco-dub workout (now a worldwide dance floor favourite), plus tracks from their 1984 album ACID RAIN. Three of those tunes, 1980s modern-soul/boogie influenced "Lady (Vocal)" and "Lady (Instriumental)" also a typical Steel An' Skin performance "Burning World" are only on this LP version (not on previous CD version).
