Black Uhuru: Tear It Up (Island) ***½
Fred Schruers, Rolling Stone, 10 June 1982
MOST OF THE songs on this live LP date back to Black Uhuru's early days and, as a result, may not be familiar to American fans who discovered the group via its most recent studio albums on Island. 'Guess Who's Coming to Dinner', for example, is a version of a tune that was a hit for lead singer Michael Rose in 1976, and 'King Selassie' dates back to 1977.
