Culture - Lion Rock

« JOSEPH HILL (1949-2006) »

It is with extreme sadness that we report the passing away of Joseph Hill, the lead singer of the veteran reggae group Culture.
Joseph suddenly took ill and passed away in Berlin, Germany, on the morning of August 19, 2006 while the group were in the middle of a European tour.

Joseph Hill (born January 22, 1949) enjoyed a lengthy career in reggae music and will be greatly missed by both fans and peers. The group plans to finish its current European tour and honor all other commitments with Joseph's son Kenyatta standing in on lead vocals as a tribute to his father.

Joseph Hill has blessed us with so much inspiring music - rest in peace!

This album, though made in 1982, still displays the lyrical power of Culture's 70's output. Two songs in particular Elijah and The Rasta Man stand out as gleaming examples of Hill's power to move through words. The whole album is strong both lyrically and spiritually and is more representative of Culture's spiritual side than the rest of their 80's output. Lion Rock came out before the breakup of the group and catches them close to their peak-still telling tales of the sufferer stuck in Babylon(Babylon's Big Dog and We Deh Ya Still)and the strength and power of faith.
