Title - ‘Under The Magic Sun’ (Cleopatra Records)
Artist - Third World

If you have not heard of Third World I feel sorry for you! They have been at the forefront of music for decades. Indeed, they are one of the biggest crossover successes in Reggae music and have now brought out an album that I personally never, ever expected them to!

Under The Magic Sun is Third World doing their versions of some time-honored hits, as well as giving us reproductions of three of their own hit songs: ‘Try Jah Love,’ ‘96 Degrees’ and ‘Now That We Found Love.’

The legendary Third World formed in 1973 and developed during the golden era of Jamaican roots reggae. However, unlike 90% of their counterparts at that time, they were never myopic in their musical vision. Third World have been known to incorporate folk-pop, hard rock, bossa nova, rap, light pop-jazz, doo-wop and calypso into their songs over the years. And all to great success.

Keyboardist for the band, Maurice Gregory, produced most all of the songs and his talent shines through. Indeed, he also provides lead vocals on the songs, ‘Into The Night’ and ‘Everything I Own,’ but it’s the hand-picked vintage R&B classics like ‘Put A Little Love In Your Heart’ (Jackie DeShannon, 1968) and ‘Walking In Rhythm’ by the Blackbyrds from 1975 that stand out on this incredible 14 song strong new album.

But the songs you would never expect to hear are here also! Yup, classic rock is represented nicely too with tracks such as ‘Can’t Fight This Feeling’ (REO Speedwagon), Creedence Clearwater Revival’s ’Have You Ever Seen The Rain.’ And Marvin Gaye’s poignant ‘Inner City Blues’ also gets a working.

The sole original on the album, ‘Livication To Bunny Rugs’ is a short yet loving tribute to the late Bunny Rugs. Recorded live on stage in Martinique, come the end of a musical interlude, Richard Daley (bass player), gives a poignant spoken word tribute to Rugs.
