The Congos – Children Crying

Posted on Updated on

A great reggae groove from their Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry-produced 1977 debut LP, Children Crying is full of ethereal backing vocals, the growling sounds of empty stomachs/wild beats, and the observant Rasta consciousness that typifies The Congos.

Send us another Moses, to lead the nation.
The hungry must be fed, so there’ll be no more sufferation.
All the people that you see
Will be the children of the Most High.
