If you took Steely Dan highly stylized and exquisitely clean sound, and morphed them into a reggae act,.....and then they were to cover the War classic, Slippin' Into Darkness,...it would be killer. Thick and dense percussion laden, smooth vocals, and a throbbing bass-line that simple, yet satisfying.
And it is; Black Uhuru's, Slippin' Into Darkness
, off the Mystical Truth
it is. Of the 3 click-able choices, only the first two are black Uhuru. The second one is somewhat brighter, the first one being somewhat warmer.
Being involved in live rock-n-roll for decades, my tastes were opened up while honeymooning in Negril Jamaica in the 80s. Countless subsequent trips to Negril exposed me to an outstanding live music scene. Why so outstanding? Everything's outside. So huge amounts of bass cabinets outdoors leads to very nice quality to the LF sound.
Typical observation; Upon arrival to an outdoor event after dark, I see a "Rube Goldberg" array of ground stacked, mis-matched hodge podge speakers. Front loaded, vented subs all across the front,...dozens of 18s. I scratch my head in frustration,...until the act launches into their first number....MAGIC! Words can't do it justice. The sound was tremendous..., as is typical in every club we ventured into.
I know discussion is to at a minimum, but I felt a bit of context was needed. A killer LF system outdoors can be a wonderful thing. Feet in the sand, under the stars, and at the water's edge....a you ask why we return so often?
