Just got into these guys and WOW. I've always liked reggae but I never thought that a reggae artist could be in that upper echelon of bands I truly adore but after hearing True Democracy I've changed my tune

Hell yes! Steel Pulse is awesome! Essential for any reggae fan. If you dig their roots reggae sound you should check out these albums also.

-Burning Spear Marcus Garvey


- Max Romeo and The Upsetters War Inna Babylon


Some really classic reggae vibes on both these albums. I think you would enjoy them, very easy listening but both have deep lyrics and wicked rhythms!

Wow, looking at your posts none of them have any substance but that one takes the cake.

The Handsworth Revolution is an absolute classic, which of course has cemented them as reggae legends.

After that, there are some fairly good songs sprinkled hear and there, but nothing compares to their initial release.

I first saw Steel Pulse in a large dancehall in Brixton when I was visiting London in 1980. They blew me away. Being at the gig was a bit intimidating because I was the only white dude in a crowd of about 2000 West Indian blacks.

I saw them again in Boston in 1982 and 1986 playing before an audience of nearly all white college students and they weren't nearly as good as that night in Brixton.

I've seen other reggae artists like Culture and Burning Spear tone down the militancy of their stage show when playing before predominately white audiences. It may have been an unconscious thing on the part of the reggae artist. I've noticed the response of American audiences (predominately white folks) at live reggae shows is far more subdued than the wildly enthusiastic West Indian audiences who attend live reggae shows in Jamaica and the UK.
