Live version taken from the album live and direct. Ninth and last track.
Aswad’s 1983 album Live and Direct was recorded at the Notting Hill Carnival at Meanwhile Gardens. Accompanied by a powerful horn section they created an energetic show, in which they let the listener hear the depth of their music. It’s an amazing journey with highlights like Drum and Bass Line, Soca Rumba, and the fantastic Rocker’s Medley. This British Reggae classic is fully packed with their unique rhythm and funky grooves. Amazing beats and wobbly bass lines marks this as one of the greatest live albums from the Reggae scene. LP - 180 Gram Black Vinyl.
Aswad’s Live & Direct album (conservatively described as a mini LP, but featuring 12 songs) was a live recording, made at the 1983 Notting Hill Carnival, and epitomising the band in their heyday. This recording narrowly predates the widespread integration of electronic instrumentation into reggae, and the revisions to the music’s structural parameters which progressively stripped out the guitar offbeat pattern. On this album, guitar offbeats sitting around a ‘half time’ drum groove are still pretty much obligatory. This is traditional, ‘old style’ reggae.
In August of '82, Aswad played live at Meanwhile Gardens on the Sunday of Notting Hill Carnival and the resulting live album Live and Direct is a faithful record of that event, where they played a live dub set. "Love Fire" gained wide recognition when it was used as the backing rhythm for Dennis Brown's "Promised Land". Among Aswad's catalogue of hits is "Don't Turn Around", a UK No. 1 hit in 1988, originally recorded by Tina Turner as a B-side to her "Typical Male" single. They followed this up with UK No. 11 hit "Give a Little. Aswad released their most recent material in 2009, with the album City Lock Members.

In the 1980s Aswad’s sound was enhanced by a great horns section built around variations of Michael ‘Bammi’ Rose (alto saxophone), Eddie ‘Tan Tan’ Thornton (trumpet) and Vin ‘Don D Junior’ Gordon (trombone). At this time – and for the best part of a decade – they were the foremost roots reggae band in the UK. This is Live and Direct! Live and Direct!! You know what Live and Direct mean? It mean Live and Direct. In 1983, seven years after the release of their self-titled debut album, Aswad were at their prime when they recorded their crowd-pleasing performance in Meanwhile Gardens at Notting.
Then Aswad were back with Island for Live and Direct, a recording made at the Notting Hill Carnival. This successfully captured the band's impressive stage performance and proved beyond all doubt that Aswad were now the most important influence in reggae. But as far as the long-hoped-for crossover to the wider pop world was concerned, well it simply wasn't happening. The current album, Distant Thunder has been over a year in the making. As you might guess from the mellow tones of 'Don't Turn Around', it's Aswad's slickest and most polished production to date, clearly aimed at daytime Radio One, not the "graveyard slot" on Kiss FM. Ironic really, when you consider that just as Aswad have taken onboard mainstream pop's glossy production values, the recent chart success of hip-hop and house has shown that the charts are able to assimilate a more rough and ready approach to recording.
