1 - DEAN, NORA
- PEACE BEGINS WITHIN - (7")
This is a licensed reissue of the early Reggae masterpiece "NORA DEAN "PEACE BEGINS WITHIN" initially published in 1971 and never reprinted since...Although one of the greatest Reggae female vocalists, little is known about Nora Dean. She recorded solo and also as a member of The Soulettes, The Ebony Sisters and The Soul Sisters. Nora Dean's most known song "Barbwire" was a number one hit in 1969. Her songs today are considered great classics among early Reggae fans. As both sides of this single shows, Nora Dean was without doubt one of the greatest Jamaican voices ever. "Peace begins within" is a beautiful uptempo early Reggae masterpiece where Nora's vocal ability really shows. It is an unusual song depicting in a few words the hard reality of life, on an uplifting early Reggae beat. Brilliant track! The original single is one of the most sought after Reggae 7" vinyl ever with a price tag of about 900 dollars a piece if you can ever find one... We wanted to do something very special with this reissue so we opted for the 1969's "Ay Ay Ay Ay" on the B side."Ay Ay Ay Ay" is a very unique track, a psychedelic Jamaican song - not quite Reggae - wonderfully weird, where Nora sings, moans, laughs, shrieks, whistles, delivering one of her most compelling vocal performance on a background of tribal drums and hypnoctic guitar. Awesome!
