Info :
One of the great 'concept' albums of 1970s roots reggae, "Messenger Man" is reissued by Blood and Fire with extra dub versions to all tracks. Featuring a host of top-ranking musicians - the late Jackie Mittoo and Soul Syndicate members Fully Fullwood, Tony Chin and Santa Davis, star guitarist Carl Harvey and keyboard maestro Bobby Kalphat - in the backing band, Willi delivers his unique and totally seductive visions on this long-unavailable cult classic, in much the same style as his massive hit "Armagideon Time", which was famously covered by legendary punk rockers the Clash.
