The first line-up of Black Uhuru was Garth Dennis, Don Carlos, and Derrick "Duckie" Simpson. The group has undergone several lineup changes: Carlos left, replaced by Michael Rose; then Dennis left to play with the Wailing Souls, and was replaced by Errol Nelson, alias Errol Wilson, who left the band after their first album to concentrate on his own band, The Jays (who recorded a new album with Grant Phabao to be released on T.I.M.E.C. very soon). During this early period, the band's most famous recording is the album entitled Love Crisis, later re-released (with overdubs) as Black Sounds Of Freedom.

Black Uhuru Love Crisis

Info :
Black Uhuru were the most successful act from Jamaica besides Bob Marley. They had an enormous cross-over success duirng the early to mid 80ies and were the first reggae act to win a Grammy.

Formed in Waterhouse it was only right and proper that Black Uhuru would lay their foundations at Jammys. "Love Crisis" originally released in 1977 in the UK on Count Shelley's Third World imprint was remixed by Jammy in 1981 as "Black Sounds Of Freedom" at the height of Black Uhuru's popularity. Both versions are included on this deluxe edition along with the crucial Prince Jammy dub mix along with three crucial DeeJay cuts from legendary Kingston 11 microphone man U Black. Years ahead of its time "Love Crisis" / "Black Sounds Of Freedom" represents the first major step of one of the most talented and influential vocal groups to ever come out of Jamaica.
