Joseph Hill created one of the finest Jamaican reggae vocal groups of all time – Culture – praised as such by artists as well-known as The Rolling Stones, The Clash, and Bob Marley.
It’s unpardonable that until now no biography has appeared covering the man and a recording career terminated by his premature death in 2006. Eric Doumerc has now filled that gap with his new book published in November 2019 tackling the social forces which inspired and drove Hill’s music and analysing the records he chose to make.
