Originally out in 1983, Love Power is co-produced by Fabian Cooke (from Itopia) and Lloyd Bullwackie Barnes, with assistance from Prince Douglas. Cooke plays most of the instruments himself, with his drumming centre-stage, though Ras Menelik puts in a brilliant shift on congas, and backing vocals are by Sugar Minott and the Love Joys. Cooke’s own well-crafted compositions are joined by covers of Irene Cara and the Four Tops, infectiously bridging roots, lovers and synthy, soulful eighties boogie. Betrayed is solid-gold, signature Wackies. He’s My God is a tasty shot of low-slung, grooving gospel-reggae. Evoking Michael Jackson, the jamming album-closer Drums is stone classic disco reggae, stoked for urgent revival. Terrific stuff, full of personality and charm, with a very timely freshness and hybridity.
