Overview

Alongside Steel Pulse stood Aswad, carrying the banner for roots reggae in sunny England throughout the '70s and '80s. 25 Live proves that the band can still stir up a batch of roots rockers that's plenty tasty. This vigorous performance, recorded at the Subterania in the summer of 2000, proceeds like a mini-tour of roots reggae styles as the group charges through the pop-reggae and lovers rock anthems, such as "On and On" and "Don't Turn Around," delivered with the leaner attack that the band has favored since their Roots Revival album in 1999. From the sunny ital-pop of "Two Makes One" and a cheery, harmonized reading of Marley's "Thank You Lord" to the vintage ska shuffle and burnished trombone righteousness of "Three Babylon/It's Not Our Wish," there's plenty of shine to this band's silver anniversary.
