I’ve had a copy of Jah Wobble’s Invaders of the Heart’s “Take Me To God” for about 5 years. Picked it up used, 5 bucks or so. I listen to it maybe once a year, which on average is kinda high actually. It’s like techno world music that your reggae dub DJ friend mixed for you. Here’s a song from the album:
Anyway, I saw a used copy again and picked it up for a friend and in the process also picked up a used copy of Jah Wobble’s 30 Hz collection and it is indescribably good. How he does that with his fingers is beyond me. Listening to his basslines makes me want to play the bass forever and forget about the guitar. And you gotta give props to a man who quit the music business out of disdain and keeps dropping out of successful bands when they start sucking.
