Culture - The Nighthawk Recordings
NEW ALBUM
Culture – The Nighthawk Recordings

EP with 7 tracks from reggae legend Culture, includes 4 previously unissued tracks.

Calling Rastafari, Dem A Payaka, and This Time were all originally included on the 1982 Nighthawk compilation album, Calling Rastafari. Most of the tracks released on the classic, roots reggae compilation, were recorded during a three-day session in 1981 at the Harry J studio in Jamaica. The Culture songs appeared alongside tracks by Gladiators, Mighty Diamonds, Wailing Souls and others, with most of the songs being unique to the album including those by Culture.

Can They Run, Mister Music and their respective versions were recorded two years after Calling Rastafari was issued and languished in the Nighthawk vaults until the release of this special, limited-edition EP.

Released 13th April, 2019
