Justin Hinds And The Dominoes Travel With Love
His pen remains as subtle and supple as ever, and even as he tells listeners to "Get Ready to Rock Steady," Hinds turns the dance into a lesson in righteous living. He follows "The Rainbow" back to his rural home and delivers up an eloquent tribute to country living, paying homage to Jah for it all. The album exquisitely ends with the transcendental Justin Hinds And The Dominoes Travel With Love where Hinds ponders about the state of the world and mankind.
Hinds crafted some very fine, meditative lyrics for these tracks. His unique timbre is quite evident, and perhaps highlighted moreso in this later roots reggae musical style, where there is more space to spread out and be expressive. Some of these songs are achingly beautiful.
It is really a shame that Hinds didn't record more tracks in this vein. This release was published by the now-defunct Nighthawk label run by Bob Schoenfeld. I've always enjoyed the Nighthawk label releases, and have never had a bad experience with them when it comes to sound quality. This release is no exception.
If you enjoy roots reggae, this is worthy for your collection. Hinds was an original, and deserves to be widely heard. No roots reggae collection can ever be said to be complete and absolutely no reggae fan can be worth that name without this superb Wailers backed hearty drum and bass, roots driven reggae rhythm.
But 'Travel With Love', originally released inis far smoother, rootsier and more evocative than that offering. And this album came when reggae was just embarking on a journey of Alt J Relaxer destruction with the Justin Hinds And The Dominoes Travel With Love dancehall madness!
This is, quite simply, a remarkable album, and the imprint of the Wailers' duo of Aston 'Familyman' Barret and Carlton Barret makes this a dynamite collector's item.
This is a truly superb record, top-rank in areas of vocals, songwriting, musicianship, and production. The line-up of players is the best, and I'm sure they loved making the music on this album. Sounds it. Some of the songs have a bluesy vamp goin' on -- one wonders if this has something to do with the fact that the label behind this recording Nighthawk was founded as a blues label.
Note that Justin Hinds And The Dominoes Travel With Love is Justin Hinds And The Dominoes Travel With Love Pickled People Pickled People bonus track on Ramal LaMarr Omens Oracles Mysticisms Of Dance CD in the form of a tasteful dub version of Sweet Loraine attached to the vocal cut.
Audiophiles should also note that though this is not a re-mastered CD release, the sound quality is quite fine. Justin Hinds and the Dominoes left a slim legacy in terms of complete albums -- but this one released in is a strong classic. Hinds' somewhat plaintive voice is a truly beautiful thing. Reggae lovers are fortunate that Nighthawk got him and his Dominoes out to make this beautiful recording. Received this CD free due to it arriving a month or so late.
It was well worth it. Did not know Justin sang roots reggae and love songs such Lovables Its Beautiful are here. Backed by top notch musicians the rythems are great. Great addition to my vast catolog. IMO - The drumming and percussion on several songs here is among the best ever recorded in reggae.
Really beautiful Byron Lee The Dragonaires Soul Time that hasn't been matched since. The story is that Justin Hinds was taking a break from the corrupt and dangerous music industry he had an encounter with a gun at a studioand was literally living in the jungle when he was lured out for this album.
