And here we have yet another Steel Pulse vinyl single, “Save Black Music” from the Grammy Award-winning album Babylon The Bandit. Overall, a mediocre effort from Steel Pulse with several outstanding tracks. The opening track “Save Black Music” is striking as the opening track. This is a different sound and vibe from Steel Pulse. Although David Hinds’ lyrics remain conscious and strong, Steel Pulse enter a horrid phase characterized by the overuse of synthesizers, which was a development that emerges in the 1980s. Still an interesting listen if you are a fan. The first track on this 12″ has a distinctly different mix. Track 2 is the instrumental and Track 3 is the LP version.
