  • The soundtrack of a 1980 concert filmed at the legendary Rainbow in London, PRISONER IN THE STREET is one of the best live reggae albums of its era. At this point in their career, Third World had moved from their early roots style to a more pop-influenced R&B-reggae hybrid.
  • While the songs on PRISONER IN THE STREET aren't as light and poppy as they would be on later albums such as 1983's ALL THE WAY STRONG, the sound is still closer to the British pop-reggae of Aswad or UB40 than early Jamaican roots reggae. This isn't a bad thing, as Third World largely pioneered this style and do it better than just about anyone. A set list drawing heavily from 1977's 96 DEGREES IN THE SHADE and 1978's JOURNEY TO ADDIS means that PRISONER IN THE STREET features the group at their artistic height. This well-recorded concert is classic live reggae.
