TUNE OF THE WEEK #53
MIGHTY THREES – RASTA BUSINESS – APRIL RECORDS
The Mighty Threes heavy roots piece Rasta Business is a prime example of late 1970s steppers reggae. It’s an excellent effort by this less known and largely underrated vocal trio that consisted of Bernard Brown, Noel “Bunny” Brown, and Carlton Gregory. The single benefits from a driving beat and truly great vocals. In 2004, the Education label released a 12″ single on which Rasta Business and its dub version was paired with the vocal & dub of Sata, but it certainly wasn’t the 1979 original as the vocal was taken from the LP Africa Shall Stretch Forth Her Hand.
