Lucky Dube House Of Exile Limited Vinyl LP

Overview:
South African reggae star won a worldwide following before his untimely death in 2007. House Of Exile is one of his best-selling and most acclaimed albums - now on vinyl. Reggae's popularity in Africa produced a new generation of African reggae stars such as Alpha Blondy and Lucky Dube. Dube became South Africa's first homegrown reggae star with his soulful, melodic yet message-oriented recordings. Vocally he evoked the style of his hero Peter Tosh. Yet Lucky's voice ranged beyond this similarity with a power and phrasing all his own. It's no surprise then that he became the most important new artist from South Africa in many years. South Africa's foremost reggae star continued to grow with House Of Exile. His voice, powerful as always, presented more facets than the trademark Peter Tosh-style baritone that first attracted attention. Most impressive was his songwriting, which had become more sharply political. He addressed the struggle in South Africa as well as themes of personal liberation. With so much Jamaica reggae tending in a dance hall direction, it's heartening to see the classic internationalist message reggae of Marley, Tosh and Wailer carried on in Africa by Lucky.
