ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
'Rolling Stoned' magazine ranked WOAReggae, number 42 on its list of 100 Greatest Reggae Bands of all time. According to that same magazine, their innovative music and cultural impact helped define a few other things that we don't feel like writing about. Elvis Presley disapproved of WOAReggae's anti-war activism and open use of Ganja, later asking President Richard Nixon to ban all four members of the group from re-entering the United States on their return trip from their successful tour of Albania. Tricky Dick told the King, "No Way! I can't do that. I'm a huge fan of those boys and I will not let the American people down. The Band has shown qualities that Americans identify with: guts, patriotism, idealism, a passion for freedom. I sing their songs when ever I need a 'LIFT'. My concern today is not with the length of a person's dreadlocks, but with his conduct. A dreadlock congo bongo I am not a crook" ...for the unabridged bio check out: www.workofartmusic.com

ANTONIO RICCA

Great
It is a very fresh and fantasious reggae cd. Never tedious and every track has something to tell. I reccomend this piece.

Roland Stauber

A great Summer CD!
Art "Ski" Halperin and Barry Diament did it again! After "Simplicity", this is another great cooperation resulting in a truly outstanding album, beautifully recorded. Also check out their other cooperation called "Lift", which is available from www.soundkeeperrecords.com
Thank you for some great music!

An album to savor over and over...
Review from John Crossett of GoodSound.com:

Guitar slinger Art "Ski" Halperin was legendary producer John Hammond’s final discovery in a career that brought to the masses Billie Holiday, Bob Dylan, and Bruce Springsteen. That Halperin’s name isn’t better known is due more to Hammond’s premature death than to Halperin’s talent -- which is tremendous. He currently works with a loose conglomeration of musicians from which he fills his group, Work of Art, for any particular recording date. Their previous disc, Lift, was a folk-rockish production, but Waves is reggae -- apparently one of Halperin’s big musical loves. Nor is this bland, ordinary reggae, but the down’n’dirty, harmonious, ganja-flavored variety. Waves is a worthy successor to the work of another legend, Bob Marley. Listen to "Jack and the Herb Stalk" for a musical version of the old fairy tale "Jack and the Beanstalk," told through the eyes of a Rastafarian. It’s a hoot -- and something Marley might have recorded himself. One big difference between most reggae and Waves is engineer Barry Diament, whose mixing and mastering here make Waves sound as good as its music... The bass is deep and clean, Halperin’s guitar work shines, and the drums thump joyfully, all with a sense of space and air. This is an album to savor over and over. . . .
