Midnite question
April 14, 2011 08:01PM
So I've been on a Midnite kick again lately and am thinking of purchasing a new CD.

I already own Unpolished, Ras Mek Peace, Seek Knowledge Before Vengeance, Assini, Let Live, and Ainshant Maps. What crucial album of theirs should I add to my collection?

I'm thinking Jubilees of Zion, Infinite Quality, or What Makes a King. Also He Is Jah, because I LOVE the song "Leader Be", but I heard that one may be out of print?

Any comments, suggestions, or advice is welcome.

Jubilees of Zion would be my pick. Killa, no filla as I would say.

Check out "Nemozian Rasta"

Its a unique album as far as Midnite goes...a little bit of hip hop influence as far as the beats and delivery of lyrics (in a good way).

Also it features a few really nice songs from Dezarie....which really put her on the map in my mind....It's pretty much a 'must-have' Midnite album...

hip hop influenced tune...

probably my favorite track from the album...

I second that^. Jubilees of Zion is CRUCIAL! Tracks like Ras to The Bone, Earth Cycle Now A Rasta and White Collar Criminal are just a few of the defining songs that get constant rotation round my house. If you dig that Ainshant Maps album (One of my FAVORITES!!) than you will most likely love Scheme of Things. Unfortunately, you are correct about He Is Jah; "out of stock", I had to email Preston and special order that one a couple years back. Check out Geoman as well, a little bit more unconventional with some jazz and hip hop experimentation. I have been bumpin Ark A Law recently, it grew on me over time (didnt really dig it at first, took a few listens).

Crazy Lyrics!!

Thanks for the input peoples! Treez, I had never considered Nemozian Rasta, and I like the links provided. I have to admit I'm leaning towards Jubilees, gotta like "Great Zimbabwe Walls" and "White Collar Criminal"! And knowledge seeker, I forgot to say I have Scheme A Tings and Geoman on my Itunes, but you're right cause I love the song "People Iz I" from Geoman.

All in all it seems like one can't go wrong with ANY Midnite album! What are opinions on Infinite Quality?

I second (or third or fourth?) Jubileez. I also love "Full Cup". Totally un-reggae in the rhythmic sense, but if you (like me) are a Vaughn Benjamin fan, he is at his absolute prime lyrically and vocally.

I would also say Jubilees of Zion should be next. And if you are into dub you need to check Intense Pressure and Infinite Dub (dub to Infinite Quality). Both wicked albums that I haven't seen mentioned here.

Wow, I didn't realize how hard some of these CD's are to find and/or are out of print. Couldn't find a copy of Jubilees ANYWHERE (record store, amazon, midnite website), nor He Is Jah, and BARELY located a copy of Nemozian Rasta, so I ordered that and it's in the mail. Maybe they'll have a copy of Jubilees of Zion ant SNWMF? Anyone know where to find some of these older Midnite recordings?
