Performer Notes
  • A new album from Zion Train is always cause for celebration, especially when it focuses on reggae and dub and touches more lightly on other worldbeat sounds. Live as One is a strictly reggae project, with guest appearances from such A-list singers and chatters as Tippa Irie and Earl 16, as well as lesser-known vocalists Lua, Marlene Johnson, Dub Dadda, Raiz, and YT. Although it stays well within the reggae boundaries, Live as One features a startling variety of sounds -- some gentle instrumental dub ("Audrey and June"), some jittery rockers grooves ("Life That I Choose," the borderline jungly "Baby Father" (the lyrics to which focus refreshingly on paternal responsibility instead of the usual reggae theme of female treachery), funky reggae-hip-hop ("What a Situation"), and dubwise roots reggae (the lovely "Why," featuring singer Marlene Johnson). Earl 16 makes his appearance on the horticultural anthem "Give Me Good Sensi," and "Animus Mundi" features what may be the first-ever use of a Franklin Delano Roosevelt sample for rhythmic purposes. And as usual for a Zion Train release, the liner notes include a bewildering assortment of political and environmental messages, along with a whimsical assortment of bizarre news stories. Highly recommended. ~ Rick Anderson
Professional Reviews
The Wire (p.67) - "[I]t's Marlene Johnson's 'Why' that stands out, along with the dubstrumentals picking up where Dub Syndicate left off around ten years ago. Still leaders of the nu roots pack."

The Beat (Magazine) (p.14) - "[T]he ride is fraught with deep canyons and towering precipes, scenic views, long slow grooves and heart-stopping turns."
