Culture - Two Sevens Clash: The 30th Anniversary Edition
Culture is widely acknowledged as the greatest Roots Reggae harmony group of all time; they made acclaimed records and toured widely for thirty years until lead singer Joseph Hill's untimely passing.
Two Sevens Clash is hailed as one of the greatest, most influential records ever made; the title track's predictions brought the city of Kingston, Jamaica to a standstill on the fateful date of July 7, 1977, the day when the "7's" would fully clash. The album was an important influence on a whole generation of punk rockers including The Clash and The Sex Pistols.
Two Sevens Clash: The 30th Anniversary Edition is a deluxe "collector's edition" that will be a must-have for any music fan. Some of the value added features include:
- Special oversize "digi-pak" packaging with 20-page booklet that includes rare photos and liner notes by Lenny Kaye (producer of the acclaimed Nuggets series and member of The Patti Smith Group) and noted Reggae authorities Roger Steffans and Randall Grass. In addition, included are testimonials from Burning Spear, Sly Dunbar, Mutabaruka, Steel Pulse, Mick Hucknall of Simply Red and others.
- Five bonus tracks inlcuding special 12" mixes, DJ versions and dubs previously available only on rare singles.
- Magnificent rare photographs of Culture and Kingston in 1977 by noted photographer Kate Simon (Rebel Music: A Celebration Of Bob Marley).
- Digitally remastered, state of the art sound.
