The Message People - underrated UK Reggae group

two solid albums by the message people. i don't know anything else by them and was wondering if they were popular in the UK back then - or at least known to a certain extent..

I have the record.. it also has really nice artwork.. if I'm not mistaken (don't have the record at hand at the moment) it was recorded in Germany or Switserland or something like that.

never seen or heard their second album before. Guess it's rather rare

edgar - i don't know anything about the recording part you mention. germany or switzerland (or netherlands?) don't you mix it up with Iqulah's album? anyway "Freedom" is in the same vein as "African People". great music and great vocal delivery.
