Reggae was never really big in the USA, not even Bob Marley was a big Star in the States, not to talk of Jimi Hendrix pre Woodstock, but became World Music.

Robert Christgau had their two first releases in his 7ties Consumer Guide Book but i don’t think that the Janus Label had the Power to make Cymande really big.
And even a World-Class Bass Player like Steve Scipio could push a Band over if he wasn’t the Frontman.

They were also not booked to the European Featival Circus (Montreux, Roskilde an the likes) where they surely had made an Impact.

Great Post, thanks. Erik
