Jack Ruby Presents


Other albums by



Jamaican producer Jack "L. Lindo" Ruby is probably best known for his work with Burning Spear on the landmark album Marcus Garvey (1975) and its follow-up a year later, the equally as impressive Man in the Hills, the title track of which is included here. Ruby had flair with horn arrangements, and the five-man horn section he assembled for these sessions gave the songs a brooding, deep, and sonorous quality that perfectly realized Spear's vision. But Ruby was much more than a one-trick pony, and he left a small but enduring body of work after his death in 1989. Included here are two songs with the great Justin Hinds ("Too Late," "Fire Is Burning"), a world-weary "Better Must Come" from Delroy Wilson, and "Black Dog" by the Heptones. The two tracks with the Gaylads ( the straight Southern soul of "I Need Your Loving" and the Impressions-styled "The Older the Moon") spotlight Ruby's versatility as a producer. Three horn-driven instrumentals by the Jack Ruby All Stars close out this collection. ~ Steve Leggett
