Originally released in 1972.

Like Sun Ra's Arkestra and John Coltrane are to jazz, the Mystic Revelation of Rastafari are to reggae – the ultimate expression of roots music and Rastafarian ideology in reggae music, music functioning at a high level of spiritual consciousness combined with an equally avant-garde and forward-looking approach to sound.

The group's stunning, unique and groundbreaking album ‘Grounation’, a mighty conceptual triple-album (the first ever reggae triple!) is, similar to Marvin Gaye's 'What's Goin' On', a definitive all-encompassing cultural statement of its time and place. A sprawling album of raw and unique cultural expression that combined Rastafari consciousness with deep spiritual jazz music – an absolute and essential classic of Reggae music.

The Mystic Revelation Of Rastafari’s ’Grounation’ is a massive opus, a work of profound musical genius that tells the story of Jamaica through music and words. A cornerstone in the history of reggae, a unique and other-worldly album the likes of which has never been made since.

This deluxe 50th Anniversary Box Set edition includes the original 3 LPs, a bonus 7" single, an art print, both new and replica original sleeve notes and photos, plus an MP3 download code.
