Jamaica Bad Pun For The Title? Yes. I Did.
If you're coming to this album to get your Bob Marley fix I'm afraid that you will be disappointed by this 1971 album. It takes the "folk" in the title fairly seriously (except when it's going very orchestral choral).
From the back sleeve:
This is the second L.P. released by the Jamaican Folk Singers. A
few favourites from their previous L.P. have been included but even
these sound new as the group continues to grow in love and understanding
of Jamaica's Folk Music. The Jamaican Folk Singers continue to generate interest in their
country's folklore as they perform for widely differing and enthusiastic
audiences at home and abroad.
