20 years after the release of Blood & Fire's outstanding but now deleted ‘Heart Of The Congos' reissue, VP Records /17 North Parade release a definitive, 2017 re-mastered 3CD edition, put together with both respect and gratitude to that illustrious antecedent. This new deluxe 3 disc edition is the first to feature the now almost impossible to find original mix of the album, unavailable since producer Lee Perry withdrew the set in 1977. Also includes the more well-known re-mix, dubs, disco mix, seven and twelve inch versions and ‘Don't Blame It On I' an overlooked previously unreleased track unearthed, too late to include on the Blood & Fire release, by Steve Barrow and David Katz in 1997.

    The Congos - Heart Of The Congos cd

    Top notch roots record, produced by Lee "Scratch" Perry. If you dont want the polished sound of Marley, or the militant songs of Tosh, this is the one to get !
