Description:
Liner Note Author: Steve Barrow. Photographers: Dick Jewell; Beth Lesser. This 2005 compilation showcases the late roots-reggae/dub legend Prince Far I's finest work of the 1970s. Among the many selections here are "354 Skank" and a version of the Slickers' classic "Johnny Too Bad" cleverly titled "Johnny Get Worse," which feature Far I's trademark raspy toasts. Unlike many collections, which focus on his late-'70s/early-'80s recordings, SILVER & GOLD boasts tracks that date as far back as '73, offering a different view of an oft-overlooked Jamaican performer.

Spin (p.78) - "[P]roduction visionary Joe Gibbs gave him thunderous backing to match." Entertainment Weekly (p.82) - "[The album] spotlights the scorched-earth chanting of Prince Far I, a fiery proto-rapper with a gravelly delivery that sounds like Howlin' Wolf..." -- Grade: A- Mojo (Publisher) (p.138) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "SILVER AND GOLD collects some of Far I's rarest and most intense recordings....The sound quality is high throughout..." Mojo (Publisher) (p.123) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[He had a] quite incredible voice, whose gruff exhortations utterly define the reggae term 'dread'..."
