2005 - Makasound - studio - discs:2

Ras Michael has the same name as his father, the famous Ras Michael of the Sons Of Negus band. But instead of delivering some Nyahbinghi, he plays a highly heartfelt show built around songs that bear an almost american folk atmosphere. And this is quite disappointing. What is absolutely astonishing are the lyrics: sufferation and pain as the main issues. This set was recorded at Earl "Chinna" Smith's Kingston yard in on November 10, 2005. Maybe this is the low point in the "Inna De Yard" series from the french Makasound label. Great music and words, but this is not Reggae at all.
