When it comes to powerful and moving reggae music that holds a deep and relatable message at its core, no one does it better than this Jamaican sensationalized reggae band Link&Chain who bring back the nostalgic old-time sweet reggae tunes to the ambiance in your living room as they live up to the message in their lyrics and produce tracks that any type of listener can greatly gravitate toward. They were formed in the year in 1986 and still have the three founding members at its ranks and an extra member Oneil Griffiths who joined in later on in 2015. They have grown to such industrial eminence and have made sure their name has been inducted in the Jamaican reggae Hall of Fame and have seen their works featured in magazines such as Rock N Roll and Beat and Pulse! They have remained true to the Rastafarian cultural belief and faith and paint the uniqueness of their reggae tunes with a potent and powerfully moving message that is meant to uplift, educate and entertain at the same time. Their latest scintillating single tune “Guide Me Jah” has all these and many other endearing qualities to drift a listener away to a musical heaven near them!
The lush and grand abundant glamour gives this tune its melodic edge right from the intro to the outro with the reggae percussion, the alluring and solidly done rhythmic guitars and the lavishly hit drums that are the cornerstone of this glamorous reggae tune that carries a deep message of faith, hope, and resiliency at its core. The catchy chorus “Guide Me Jah the way I should go, lift me up and place my feet higher and higher, Jah you are the captain the pilot the leader, you’re at the wheels the navigator” is recognizing God’s authority in our lives. In order to survive, we need that guidance from the Most High Jah who is and will always be on our side.
In the midst of all the injustices, suffering, temptations, the forces of evil, and all kinds of atrocities, we have to let Jah be our guide and we need him now more than ever! I was intrigued to hear the reminiscent qualities of this track that reminded me of Morgan’s Heritage’s “Down by the River side” own groundbreaking track and I know he also approves of Link&Chain’s genuine and passionate delivery in “Guide Me Jah”. This is the band we want, this is the music we want to listen to more often! “Guide Me Jah” is now available on all the major streaming platforms – follow the attached link, stream, like it, save it under your favorites library, share with as many as possible to spread that message of hope and faith.
