1 - BLACK SYMBOL - BEHOLD - (CD) 
SUGAR SHACK


Four years after releasing the "Journey" album, Black Symbol has returned with a mix of roots, social commentary, spiritual music and even a love song as well as visiting some classics of the reggae genre.As has been the case throughout his career Black Symbol has self-produced his music and collaborated with other Birmingham musicians and singers including Steel Pulse's Selwyn Brown on keyboards; the recordings engineered by Angus Jones and Birmingham reggae legend Wooligan. The final mix was handed over to the experienced and regular Sugar Shack collaborator Compendulum who himself has a reggae career stretching back nearly as far as Black Symbol's.This isn't a youthful album full of anger and rage at injustice, songs of youthful bravado and boasting or songs about girls and partying. It's a mature work from a man looking back at his life, a retrospective filled with maturity recalling a distant Jamaican childhood, reflecting on spirituality and celebrating a love that has lasted, covering some favourite songs whilst also finding time to deal with the more serious themes that are just as relevant now as when Black Symbol started four decades ago

TRACKLISTING: 01. Mother Of Creation 02. Collie Bud 03. Mama Say 04. Behold 05. Vampire 06. Solidarity 07. Throw Down Your Arms 08. Really Have To Pray

3 - BLACK SYMBOL - BLACK SYMBOL - (CD) 
REGGAE ARCHIVES


Black Symbol are among the unsung heroes of British Reggae. During their heyday in the early 1980s, they not only released a handful of their own songs as singles, now highly sought after, but financed and released the two volumes of "Handsworth Explosion", records that documented and showcased so many talented local acts. Although their reputation within Birmingham was and still is second to none, their self-released records lacked the promotional muscle of major label backing and enjoyed modest sales, not escaping beyond the specialist reggae market.The music itself is roots reggae at its best, clearly British, but firmly anchored to the childhood home of the band's core members in St Ann's on Jamaica's North coast. Although all tracks were recorded at Outlaw Studios in the heart of Birmingham, this music is among the most Jamaican sounding of any British recordings.The CD version contain sleeve notes based on interviews with original band members; Fatman, Blobbo and Rhino plus archive photos provided by bandleader Fatman

TRACKLISTING: 01. Everything Has It's Time (4.49) 02. Everything Has It's Time (version) (4,46) 03. None A Jah Jah Children (4.21) 04. None A Jah Jah Children (version) (3.50) 05. Travel (7.38) 06. How Long (9.48) 07. Loving Jah (6.28) 08. In The Name Of Jah (4.04) 09. In The Name Of Jah (dub) (4.04) 10. Trouble Trouble (5.03) 11. Spiritual Reggae (3.06) 12. Travelling (3.06) 13. My Heart Reveals Danger (3.30) 14. Dub Piano (3.30) 15. Solidarity (5.25) 16. Tension (4.11)

5 - BLACK SYMBOL - JOURNEY - (CD) 
SUGAR SHACK


Legendary Handsworth, Birmingham reggae figure Fatman, has returned to the studio and will be releasing the first new Black Symbol album in thirty years when new CD "Journey" is released by Sugar Shack Records.During the late 1970s and early 1980s, Fatman and Black Symbol helped to put Birmingham's Handsworth area firmly on the reggae map with a series of Black Symbol singles and three albums done in conjunction with other local artists, including the two legendary volumes of "Handsworth Explosion" mostly released on the band's own eponymous label.Over the last thirty years, those original Black Symbol releases have grown in status as more and more people discover them and the original Black Symbol recordings will see a comprehensive reissue programme by our sister label Reggae Archive Records.Although the stream of releases had stopped, Fatman himself continued writing and recording music and having already returned to live performance, to great acclaim, he has decided the time is right to release new music and spread the Black Symbol message to a new worldwide audience.The ten songs on "Journey" are brand new and have been produced by Paul Horton for Ecks Productions. Paul has twice been nominated for a Grammy Award for his work on Steel Pulse's "Victims" and Pato Banton's "Life Is a Miracle". Although the music benefits from Paul's experience and knowledge of the latest production techniques, he's been careful to ensure that the music recalls the Black Symbol of old and retains that original spiritual edge.

TRACKLISTING: 01. I'm Not Afraid 02. Mama Africa 03. Bongoman 04. Morning Dew 05. Journey 06. What A Joy 07. Nothing For The Poor 08. Let It Shine 09. Jah People 10. Mr. Money Man 11. Bongoman Version 12. Not Afraid Dub 13. Moring Dew Version 14. What A Joy Version
