Aswad’s 1984 album Live and Direct was recorded at the Notting Hill Carnival. Accompanied by a powerful horn section they created an energetic show, in which they let the listener hear the depth of their music. It’s an amazing journey with highlights like "Drum and Bass Line", "Soca Rumba", and the fantastic "Rocker's Medley". This British Reggae classic is fully packed with their unique rhythm and funky grooves. Amazing beats and wobbly bass lines marks this as one of the greatest live albums from the Reggae scene.
