Originally released on Vista Sounds in 1982 and reissued in 2022 by Burning Sounds, Ride With The Rasses is one of Prince Lincoln’s very best albums. Recorded in Jamaica at Channel One, Aquarius Studios, and Tuff Gong Studios, this blistering set features a host of Jamaica’s finest musicians. The album spawned the highly collectible 12″ single “One Common Need (Food, Clothing, Shelter),” however, the finest tune on this album is the Side B opener titled “Fall Back.” Thanks to You Tube you can take in the entire album…
