Reissue of 1984 reggae album on CD for the first time

Keith Blake was born in St. Elizabeth, and raised in Greenwich Town, Kingston, Jamaica, Ras Allah's career began in the vocal group The Leaders, who recorded three tracks for producer Joe Gibbs in the late 1960s.
When The Leaders broke up, he continued to work with Gibbs, who issued his debut solo release, 'Woo Oh Oh'. In the mid-1970s he released a single 'Born a Fighter' for producer Teddy Powell, before working with Bertram Brown's Freedom Sounds, with a series of recordings, under the name Prince Alla, that are now regarded as roots reggae classics, such as 'Sun Is Shining', 'Bucket Bottom', 'Lot's Wife', and 'Stone'.
He also recorded for producer Tapper Zukie, including the album Heaven Is My Roof.
Continuing interest in his work saw the release of two albums of material from the 1970s on Blood & Fire records, Only Love Can Conquer and I Can Hear The Children Singing, which brought his work to a new audience. Allah continued to release records occasionally through the 1980s and 1990s, including an album with Jah Shaka, as well as this album. He has continued to be in demand and since 2010 has been touring the world.
