Metro's No. 1 Problem

Metro's No. 1 Problem was released in 1981 by Rhythm Discs (which was located in Kensington Market) with production, arrangements and mixing credited to Truths and Rights. The band members are identified by single names only - Qwammie, Mohjah, Iauwata, Ahmid, Ovid, Abnadengel and Chico - and the liner notes don't specify who played what. "Metro's No. 1 Problem" meanders through an unusual intro featuring piano, organ and harmonica, then merges into a more traditional reggae song decrying racism and violence. "Black Plight," an uplifting number about peace and unity, is a fairly straightforward tune with a few dubby touches throughout.
