Luciano Where There Is Life
Yesterday I published an article on Luciano's recent performance at IRITS (The Rasta Indigenous Village that was extremely well received by my readers (including the video).
But that prompted me to take a further look at Luciano and his work; and that was quite interesting. I learned for example that this album, 'Where There Is Life' was, not only his most popular, but the album that propelled him to the top of the conscious reggae music scene!
And ironically, it was released the year after Garnett Silk's untimely death, another giant in the business who was destined for great things.
Today, I'll take a look at this album and see why it was so special.

We know that it wasn't long after Luciano signed with Chris Blackwell on his Island/Mango record label that this album was released (in 1995). This was actually his debut album with the label.
(Chris, by the way, is known for signing big names like Bob Marley and U2)
Several #1 Hits
That album, it was said, swept the world music area with a number of #1 hits, with...
- It’s Me Again Jah
