Ronnie Davis – Rastaman Chant (1970s)

Working my way through a big pile of reggae CDs this morning, I stumbled upon this stone cold classic that I couldn’t remember hearing before.

Apparently, this is a version of a “Traditional” piece and worth noting that Bob Marley also recorded it on The Wailers’ classic Burnin’ LP released in 1973. However, the Ronnie Davis reading is so much better!

I have posted Ronnie Davis on this blog before (check here for the awe inspiring “False Leaders”) but information about him seems to be remarkably sparse on the interweb. As such, difficult to pin down a precise release date.

The track is available on the “Grounation” compilation and on the Trojan “Bob Marley Covers Box Set” (even though it doesn’t seem to be a Bob Marley original). This on Youtube ….
