The Gladiators - Dreadlocks The Time Is Now
Proverbial Reggae was the second album by Jamaican Roots Reggae band The Gladiators, recorded and released in 1978 on Virgin Records' Front Line imprint.
British dub poet Linton Kwesi Johnson has said the songs on Proverbial Reggae "combine intelligent, poetic lyrics with majestic melodies, enchanting harmonies, producing inspired, entertaining meaningful music."
The Gladiators are a Jamaican roots reggae band, most popular during the 1970s.
The core was Albert Griffiths (lead guitar and vocals; born 1945, died December 15, 2020), Clinton Fearon (bass guitar and vocals) and Gallimore Sutherland (rhythm guitar and vocals). The two most famous albums are Trenchtown Mix Up (1976) and Proverbial Reggae (1978) with songs such as "Hearsay", "Jah Works", "Dreadlocks the Time is Now", "Mix Up", "Music Makers from Jamaica", and "Soul Rebel" – a song written by The Wailers.
I had a vision last night
That I was walking on a street of gold
The street that I saw
Is where I and I should have been
So let's unite and stand up and fight for our rights
Dreadlocks, the time is now
Stand up fight for your rights
Or you ain't gonna get your culture man
Roots natty, don't give up - hold on
If I am wrong
Be not afraid to say so
Is there any difference between the human race ?
We are all of one skin
Same blood, same soul
But there are some who think
Dreadlocks don't count
Ieri sera ho avuto una visione
Che stavo camminando su una strada d'oro
La strada che ho visto
È dove io e io avremmo dovuto essere
Quindi uniamoci, alziamoci e lottiamo per i nostri diritti
Dreadlocks, il momento è adesso
Combatti per i tuoi diritti
O non avrai la tua cultura amico
Radici belle, non arrenderti - resisti
Non aver paura di dirlo
C'è qualche differenza tra la razza umana?
Siamo tutti di una pelle
Stesso sangue, stessa anima
Ma ci sono alcuni che pensano
I dreadlocks non contano
