They had their most successful period in the 1980s, with their album Anthem winning the first ever Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album in 1985

Producer – Black Uhuru (tracks: 6, 7, 8), Robbie Shakespeare (tracks: 1-5, 9, 10), Sly Dunbar (tracks: 1-5, 9, 10), Steven Stanley (tracks: 6, 7, 8). Written-By – . impson (tracks: 6, 8), . ose (tracks: 1-5, 7, 9-10).

What Is Life?, 05:01.

Reggae Greats is a straight CD release of Black Uhuru's 1985 LP of the same title that collected the best tracks from the group's four early-'80s studio albums for Island Records. This was arguably the peak incarnation of the band, and certainly the most stable lineup, with Michael Rose handling the lead vocals, Duckie Simpson and Puma Jones taking care of the harmonies, and the world-class reggae rhythm section of Sly Dunbar on drums and Robbie Shakespeare on bass holding it all down and also providing production direction. Included are "Happiness," "World Is Africa," and "Push Push" from 1980's Sinsemilla, "Youth of Eglington" and "Sponji Reggae" from 1981's Red, "Darkness" and "Right Stuff" from 1982's Chill Out, and "What Is Life," "Bull in the Pen," and "Elements" from 1983's Anthem. This was arguably the peak incarnation of the band, and certainly the most stable lineup, with Black Uhuru handling the lead vocals, Duckie Simpson and Puma Jones taking care of the harmonies, and the world-class reggae rhythm section of Black Uhuru on drums and Robbie Shakespeare on bass holding it all down and also providing production direction.

Darkness, seems to glorify the world, Darkness, seems to glorify the world. Black Uhuru- ELEMENTS Lyrics: I Look up to the sun, To see if the day is done, To see my future that lies within. I Look up to the Sun, Now the day is done, The LOVEing night,spread its wings like a Dove. But in my vision I see: The tune of melody, The song we used to sing, The Joy LOVE can Bring.
