Remastered reissue of this superb release. The Joe Higgs album 'Life Of Contradiction' is, without doubt, one of the most seminal reggae records of all time. Originally recorded for Chris Blackwell of Island Records the rights of 'Life Of Contradiction' were then given to Joe Higgs who released the album in Jamaica and the U.K. in 1975. It was immediately obvious that this was a unique collection coming from a completely different direction to the other reggae releases of the period.
