Soul Jazz Records release their classic Rastafari - The Dreads Enter Babylon 1955-83 in a new, one-off blue coloured double vinyl pressing. The album includes new tracks and is fully remastered from the original edition. Spanning nearly 30 years of revolutionary music, and featuring the music of Count Ossie, Johnny Clarke, The Mystic Revelation of Rastafari, Bongo Herman, Earth & Stone and many more, this is an in-depth look at some of the heaviest and righteous music ever made.

The album charts the many links between reggae music and Rastafarianism. The album comes complete with full gatefold, plus bespoke inner sleeves containing stunning exclusive photography and extensive sleeve notes. Rastafarianism had its roots at the start of the 20th century and became widespread in Jamaica following the visit of Haile Selassie, the King of Ethiopia, to Kingston in 1966.

By the 1970s, Rastafarianism become practically synonymous with reggae, as many roots reggae artists became known throughout the world, notably spearheaded by the success of Bob Marley and The Wailers. As ‘roots reggae’ artists in the 1970s continued to spread the word of Jah in their music, Rastafari reggae became the ultimate rebel sound throughout the world.
