Count Ossie & The Mystic Revelation Of Rastafari - Grounation

This 1972 album is an unimpeachable classic of Rastafarian music. Master drummer Count Ossie lures you in with deeply hypnotic Nyabinghi grooves, while a loose gathering of horns and brass play gorgeously simple melodies. Floating over both, Orator Brother Samuel Clayton narrates Jamaican history, chants Rastafari knowledge and sings deeply spiritual poems. A beautiful album heavy with history and spirituality, and a wide open window into Rastafari culture.
