The Congos - Heart of the Congos: 40th Anniversary Edition (3xLP)
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 remastered 3CD edition, put together with both respect and gratitude to that illustrious antecedent. This new deluxe 3CD 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. Look out for a featured track on the Songlines Magazine covermount CD, May 2017 issue!
