Description

Though it's considered a classic of roots reggae-- a late-1970s style focused on Rastafarian teaching, social distress, and political injustice-- Two Sevens Clash generally sounds a lot brassier than most of the records in its category. The rhythms, if not always dance-oriented, are springy and uptempo, the harmonies are major, and Joe Gibbs's production is bright (contra, say, dub's intoxicant muddiness). And Hill is ultimately the catalyst reveling in the middle, a wily, lemony voice, never shying away in melody or delivery, never letting harsh reality cancel out his hope, but never pretending things are any less miserable than they actually are. Many schools and businesses closed their doors when the day came and many Jamaicans refused to venture from their homes.

Their Message? The Unforgotten suffering of their Ancestors as they toiled, in blood sweat and tears to perish. Their Jubilation? The Realisation that for this inhuman act, someday, BABYLON WILL PAY Filename E:\2017 HDD\To Move\Culture - Two Sevens Clash [40th Anniversary Edition] [Disc One]\01 Calling Rasta For I.wav Filename E:\2017 HDD\To Move\Culture - Two Sevens Clash [40th Anniversary Edition] [Disc One]\08 Jah Pretty Face.wav The liner notes of the album read: "One day Joseph Hill had a vision, while riding a bus, of 1977 as a year of judgment - when two sevens clash - when past injustices would be avenged. Lyrics and melodies came into his head as he rode and thus was born the song "Two Sevens Clash" which became a massive hit in reggae circles both in Jamaica and abroad. The prophecies noted by the lyrics so profoundly captured the imagination of the people that on July 7, 1977 - the day when sevens fully clashed (seventh day, seventh month, seventy-seventh year) a hush descended on Kingston; many people did not go outdoors, shops closed, an air of foreboding and expectation filled the city."

With its apocalyptic message, the song created a stir in his Caribbean homeland and many Jamaican businesses and schools closed for the day.
