About this deal

This is imho, one of their best albums ever and a CLASSIC in it's own right and a good recording to boot! Black Slate are a reggae band based in the United Kingdom which formed in 1974 and included musicians from England, Jamaica, and Anguilla. It was also in 1980 that Black Slate released the album AMIGO, also on Ensign Records, which features all three of the hit singles already mentioned above and secured Black Slates reputation as one of the leading contemporary reggae outfits in Europe with their dancefloor friendly reggae grooves.

They toured heavily around London and the UK in their formative years, backing renowned Jamaican musicians such as Dennis Brown, Delroy Wilson and Ken Boothe. BBR is very proud to present AMIGO in full and expanded form, complete with extensive liner notes and bonus content.
