Ras Shiloh-Only King Selassie

*Review by “Buju M”
 Ras Shiloh comes with a fantastic new album – `Only King Selassie ‘, already hailed by some as one of the top roots albums of this year.
 Produced by the legendary King Jammy at his Waterhouse studio, this set features 15 brand new tracks bearing titles such as `Rasta Man To Africa, `Praises to Jah’, `United We Stand’ and `So Much Heathen’, which gives an indication of the rootical nature of the tunes on the album. With a mixture of new and revived classic Jammy rhythm’s such as “I Love King Selassie’ and `Sleng Teng’.

 This set follows on in a similar vein to Sizzla’s `Waterhouse Redemption’ and Natural Black’s `Jah Guide’ – both recent highly acclaimed Greensleeves albums also produced by King Jammy.

 Over the past decade Ras Shiloh, originally hailing from Brooklyn, has established himself as a top international artist, with 5 well-received albums under his belt and regular appearances on Jamaican pre-release singles on labels such as Digital B, Penthouse, Massive B, Maximum Sounds, Lion Vibes, amongst others. Ras Shiloh performs regular shows across the U.S and Europe.`Only King Selassie’ is must for all serious reggae buyers or even anyone with a passing interest in the current roots revolution. 
*I just had to add that the track ‘Mama Africa’ with Lutan Fyah is definitely a highlight.
