Starring Third World

I only own one Third World CD and that has the song “Reggae Ambassador” on there. Thankfully this DVD contains that song as well because that’s the reason why I started to listen to the band. Thank the people who did the music for the movie Men At Work starring Emilo Estevez and Charlie Sheen. That soundtrack was filled with reggae artists & bands and Third World was on there as well.
This concert was filmed for live television in Germany at “HR- Hessische Rundfunk” in 1993 and features 8 songs from the reggae band. The band has toured all over the place, and created some awesome & positive music for all to enjoy. Their set opens up with “Hooked on Love” and gets the old lame white people dancing in the crowd. I always liked their music because it’s sort of a mix between reggae & R&B. My favorite song obviously is “Reggae Ambassador” and then after they do some cover of a song. I think it was “Midnight Hour?” I was surprised to see the band get out the cello and play some dub/classical piece which I liked a lot. The live show isn’t all that exciting to me though. They play their music and do it well, but I don’t think I would like seeing these guys live. There’s certain bands I always preferred to listen to on CD than seeing live.
This is something to own if you really like the band but if you are just starting to get into reggae music, you might be a little bored with these guys. The DVD is only an hour or so and isn’t a lot there. The quality is all right, but you can tell it was filmed for TV and does look a little outdated. Check this out if you are interested.
