This is Max Romeo’s 1971 album called Let The Power Fall that was released on Dynamic Sounds record label in Jamaica. Produced by Bunny Lee, it’s a total roots affair with a strong emphasis on religious songs and the odd cover version. As artwork goes, this is a very clean and respectable album cover from the singer who put the ‘rude’ into ‘rudeboy’ with early slack tracks like Wet Dream. We love the innocence of the cover on this album, – this is exactly the sort of record artwork you would NEVER get nowadays. Can you imagine Vybz Kartel coming out with an album cover like this – of course.

Max Romeo has spent his career both avoiding and embracing the legacy of his first single, the explicit "Wet Dream," which was virtually ignored when it was released in Jamaica in 1966, but thanks to the skinheads, became a huge and lasting hit in England, where it served as a sort of anthem to the dream life of thousands of young males.
