ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
One of the true foundation members of reggae music. Best known as a producer and as the composer of "Armagideon Time" an international hit song for himself and the British Pop Group "The Clash". Willi Williams has been writing, producing and performing music for over 35 years. Williams' songs express his vision, ideals and philosophy through music that speaks to audiences of all kinds. His performances internationally have touched Reggae and Pop fans alike.

"Like Marcus Garvey and Bob Marley, Williams carries with him what Bunny Wailer would term 'prophetical messages,' those of human co-operation and uprightness:" Kareen Karim, Echoes, London

A soft-spoken man with a clear sense of purpose, Williams sings with a combination of laid-back beauty and intensity. His arrangements are an unorthodox blend of Reggae and Soul Rhythms, possibly the result of his varied early influences which includes Reggae Stars Delroy Wilson, Bob Andy, along with Quincy Jones, Lou Rawls, Stevie Wonder and Four Tops.

His songs have been recorded by the Clash, Delroy Wilson, Dennis Brown, Gregory Isaacs, Deelite, Apache Indian, Dean Fraser, Born Jamericans and a host of other artists.
