This 'reunion' of the Abyssinians (after - as I understood it - members went there own way for some years) starts with a song based on the Abyssinians' 'classic' Satta Massagana. This album is evidently roots reggae, as the Abyssinians evidently remain a roots reggae band. Some influences of recent origin are to be found though on this album, albeit mainly in some of the instrumentation. The songs are in general solid, and the music a groovy, rhythmic reggae
Satta Massagana 1976. Forward Unto Zion (Vinyl) 1977.
