ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Belle Islanders started as a recording project involving 3 members of legendary Detroit reggae group Black Market and infamous Detroit rocker/vocalist Dave Edwards of The Look (\"We\'re Gonna Rock\") in 2005. Inspired by a 1970\'s reggae compilation \"FEELIN\' HIGH\", Dave and musician/producer Bob Monteleone (of Luck and Trouble)decided to lay down their own versions of some of their favorite songs from the obscure comp including \"Feelin\' High\", \"Country Living\", \"A-So\" and \"I Man Bitter\".
They enlisted the help of Black Market/Raggamuffin rhythm section Mitch Purdy and James Megerian; Jamaican guitarist/keyboardist Brian Silverman & vocalist April Monteleone.
They added a few originals to the mix, including \"I\'m Gonna Love Ya\" and \"Soon Come\", a Texas Tornados cover \"Who Were You Thinkin\' Of\" and Bob Marley\'s gem, \"High Tide Or Low Tide\".
The idea was to record some reggae music with the aesthetic of early-mid 1970\'s Kingston, before synths & drum machines. Before toasting & dancehall. Just organic, rootsy, soulful reggae music.
