Review

South Africa's Lucky Dube started his career playing traditional mbaqanga music, but following Bob Marley's legendary 1980 concert celebrating the independence of Zimbabwe, he switched to reggae. Reggae's trademark themes of suffering and liberation gained a fresh power in a South African context, and Dube's sturdy populist writing style (which owes a great deal to Peter Tosh) came to a peak in the albums Slave and Prisoner, the title tunes of which are both included here, along with key tracks from his other releases. Also notable is Dube's cover of "Peace Perfect Peace," a powerful Toots Hibbert tune of hopeful reconciliation.
