Mule Train is possibly the most annoying song ever made.

Ever heard Maddy maddy cry? :roll: (I do find it equally as entertaining as annoying)

I might agree if you concede that Now That We Found Love would be the second most annoying song ever made.

Or anytime Cat Coore picks up that bow to play his guitar like a cello. Time to find an exit for me!

hehe

i was never interested in third world's music but i have to admit that they are fantastic musicians with a very impressive live performance. i saw them for the first time last february at rebel salute in jamaica. wide range of musical variety. heavy!

Maybe they played a more rootsy set at Rebel Salute than they normally do on the road in America.

the only shows i ever saw of third world were in the usa, and it was absolutely clear this was band with deadly serious chops. much of their catalogue is not as rootsy or heavy as i'd like, but there was never any mistaking that they were great musicians.

i never want to take anything away from third world, as they were a big part of getting me hooked on reggae.
i try and remember that on my radio show too. i want to catch listeners with music, like a fisherman catches fish with a net -- so i remember to cast it far and wide, and will include tunes/groups that caught my ear when i was new to the genre.
not everyone who tunes in to our show is a serious reggae head, so at times i will include third world, aswad, marley and such.

the last third world vocal tune i played was this piece, over a year ago. yes, it's soft, but so is water that cuts canyons...

Well I am sure someone appreciates them, but personally, I never was attracted to their uptown sound. Cannot even think of one song I would recommend, maybe their treatment of satta amasagana on that Rockers soundtrack. Soft water cuts canyons, but it take eons and mostly the dirt gives way just from time as much as the water cutting through it. And i am still not sure who thinks that cello thing is a good idea.

Soft water cuts canyons, but it take eons

and so it is with some music...takes time to appreciate it for what it is.

i'd recommend:
from their 1st LP "third world"... sette messgana, slavery days
from their 2nd LP ""96* in the shade"... jah glory (love this one), tribal war, dreamland, human market place, 1865 (96* in the shade)

and there are other cuts i appreciate as well, like the one i posted above, "who gave you (jah rastafari)", though they got significantly more rock/pop after this.
do i listen to them much? no. but i do appreciate them for what they are and for what they've done for me!

Thanks for the recommendations minidub, but honestly, I think I would rather listen to the weakest Vivian Jones cut than bother hunting those down. I don't think I even have those LPs, my lack of enthusiasm comes from way back. yeah I know, ignorance is bliss sometimes, and i can be a very blissful person in that regard. And its not that i dont recognize they are probably great musicians, i never paid enough attention for that to strike me. Just too smooth sounding i guess.

i totally get what you're saying jb.
but i'm pretty sure i could get you to regret this comment; you know i love vivian jones to the max but he can do some schmaltz, let me tell you:

and to get back on topic...
i was just listening to a sweeter than sweet big peoples CDR from the one nick solid rock featuring jackie edwards and alton ellis -- something he called "hand cart & cane juice" (iirc).
it's absolutely chock full of complete goodness.
i'd give the tracklist but i gave it to a co-worker on monday who was loving it while i had it spinning at work!

jackie edwards and alton ellis are jamaican national treasures.
