Count Ossie & The Rasta Family's long lost reggae album Man From Higher Heights (originally released in 1983), digitally remastered and with full original artwork. Recorded in Kingston, Jamaica, somewhere between the last Mystic Revelation album and the 1983 official release of 'Man From Higher Heights', it remains unclear whether this album is a mixture of original recordings overlayed with additional players, or Ossie's post-Mystic Revelation players remaining true to the spirit of Count Ossie (who had died in a car crash in 1976). Either way, it is a fascinating and successful blend of heavyweight Rastafarian roots rhythms and drumming alongside deep jazz improvisation and tripped out psychedelic fuzz guitar.
