BLACK UHURU – Pain
Black Uhuru first formed in 1972, initially as Uhuru (Swahili for ‘freedom’). The group has undergone several line-up changes over the years, with Derrick “Duckie” Simpson as the mainstay. As a unique singer in his own right, Delroy “Junior” Reid had the opportunity to reach a wider international audience when he was offered the chance to be the lead singer in Black Uhuru in 1986. Always a strong follower of Black Uhuru, and with a similar vocal style, Reid elevated the group to another level delivering militant albums like ‘Brutal’ and ‘Positive’. ‘Pain’ is a superb little Digi tune recorded with respected heavyweight Steven Stanley in 1987 during the recording of the ‘Positive’ LP. Later it also appeared on Reid’s own JR Label as “Pain On The Poorman Brain” but with a different mix and listening experience. TRS is pleased to announce the 7″ reissue of “Pain” is available right now. Licensed though Real Authentic Sounds (RAS).
