DEAD LINKS

NOTE : DEAD LINKS
We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.

Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.

Stay tuned !

BEN HARPER (ABO#245)

THE POWER OF
BEN HARPER
(1992-2009)

I won't be long by talking about Ben Harper because mostly everyone knows him, and that's a good thing. Just that, like anyone else, some of his songs are real masterpieces and are not very well known. Of course, Ground On Down (available live here) is one of his most popular songs and one of his best but other great tunes like The Power Of Gospel (really touching) and God Fearing Man (really outblowing!) are what he made the best. So it's one more reason to take an ear back to his whole carreer. You'll have understood : My favourite BH album is Fight For Your Mind, by far...








My Ben Harper TOP3 :
1- Fight For Your Mind (1995)
2- Burn To Shine (1999)
3- Welcome To The Cruel World (1993)

My Ben Harper BOTTOM3 :
1- There Will Be A LIght (w/ The Blind Boys Of Alabama) (2004)
2- Lifeline (2007)
3- Diamonds On The Inside (2003)

Oui, il faut croire qu'il fallait qu'il renouvelle son personnel.

hey, i appreciate your comments, because i listened to some of his songs, and i really enjoyed his music.
i liked his direct lyrics, like saying what's need to be said and just being straight-to-the-point.
BUT, the albums i had were lifeline and diamonds on the inside and when i heard them, i was like, sh*t, i expected much more of him, so readig your review has encouraged me to listen some of his other records!
thank you! greetings from abya-yala!

I didn't know Ben Harper before listening to this. This is so good I'm going to need to pick up his albums. Thanks for the introduction.
