Lights Of The Pacific: The Very Best Of - Herbs - Top 40 Albums

New Zealand Artist: Herbs

Since 1979 the Herbs have produced a stream of affable reggae hits with some of the country's top talent. Between 1986 and '87 Slice of Heaven, with Dave Dobbyn, reached #1 on both the New Zealand and Australian charts. In 1989, Tim Finn joined them for Parihaka, and in 1992 Annie Crummer fronted the huge hit See What Love Can Do. The Herbs have also worked alongside UB40, Taj Mahal, Tina Turner, Neil Young and Stevie Wonder.

In the 1980's, and the first half of the 90s, The Herbs were considered to be the Kings of the South Pacific with ten Top 20 singles hits. Though infectiously upbeat, the Herbs' music has always been forthcoming in its messages. Their 1980 hit French Letter (which spent 11 weeks on the charts) came to express the country's anti-nuclear stance - 14 years later it was re-recorded to garner support for the prevention of nuclear testing at Mururoa. Similarly, No Nukes, Nuclear Waste and Light of The Pacific did as much for the national psyche as they did for popular radio. Long Ago was a diverse album featuring tracks like On My Mind, Stolen Time, Repatriation and Jah Reggae, all which had their own message. The album featured Carl Perkins (who formed House Of Shem), who played percussion and co-wrote & sang some of the songs.
