Third World

Arise In Harmony
Pristine, 1980 Original Los Angeles Pressing. Gold Promo Stamp On Front Cover. Includes Uptown Rebel. Produced by Third World; Engineered By Erroll Brown. "1980's Arise In Harmony Is An Excellent Example Of Third World's Post-96 Degrees In The Shade Transition Period, From The Heavy Roots Reggae Of Their Earliest Albums To The Lighter, Slicker, And Poppier Albums Of The All The Way Strong Era. While It Would Be A Few Albums Yet Until Third World Made A Full-fledged Bid For Pop Crossover, There's No Denying That There's A Cleaner And Poppier Vibe Here. Even Rasta Devotionals Like "Bridge Of Life" And Slice-Of-Kingston-Life Numbers Like "Uptown Rebel" And "Prisoner In The Street" (Later The Theme Song Of The Jamaican Film Of That Name) Have Subtle Synth Coloration And Brighter Arrangements. The Overall Effect Is Not Unlike The First Couple Of UB40 Records Mixed With Late-Era Bob Marley. Strict Purists Might Sniff, But There's No Denying That This Stuff Sounds Terrific" AMG Review.
